Clinical decision support that integrates multiple elements of laboratory data could be highly useful in enhancing laboratory diagnosis. Using the analyte ferritin in a proof-of-concept, we extracted clinical laboratory data from patient testing and applied a variety of machine learning algorithms to predict ferritin test result using the results from other tests. We show that predicted ferritin results may sometimes better reflect underlying iron status than measured ferritin. We next integrate temporality into predicting multi-variate analytes. We devise an algorithm alternating between cross sectional imputation and auto regressive imputation. We show modest performance improvement of the combined algorithm compared to either component alone.
