MEDICAL SENSITIVITY “versus” MEDICAL SPECIFICITY

Covid-19 Implications?

Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA
***
Sensitivity and specificity are statistical measures of the performance of a binary classification test function widely used in medicine.
***
• SENSITIVITY (true positive rate, recall, or probability of detection) measures the proportion of actual positives that are correctly identified (percentage of sick people identified as having the condition).
• SPECIFICITY (true negative rate) measures the proportion of actual negatives that are identified (percentage of healthy people identified as not having the condition). LINK: https://lnkd.in/eJqhQYc
***
NOTE: “Positive” and “Negative” don’t refer to the value of the condition, but to its presence or absence; so that “positive” might mean “diseased”, while “negative” might mean “healthy”.
