BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making called for submissions to our Collection on Counterfactual Prediction Models in Medicine. Prediction models are not assured to be usable in counterfactual mode to assess hypothetical interventions.

The aim of this collection was to encourage methodological and applied studies concerning the development, validation, and application of counterfactual prediction models in healthcare.
