MODEL TO PREDICT PROGRESS IN THE NEUROCRITICAL PATIENT


Explanation:
I don't know if you can say 'neurocritical patient' although you can definitely talk about 'neurocritical care' - if not then maybe something like 'Model to predict progress in neurology patients requiring critical care' would work?

FORECAST MODEL FOR NEUROCRITICAL PATIENT RECOVERY


Explanation:
That's one option.
Note that I avoid using "evolution"; its Spanish counterpart seems to be in fashion nowadays, and is often overused/misued, in a similar way as "desarrollar" is overused to mean "realizar". This is why I chose "recovery", the usually desired outcome of medical treatments.

I prefer "forecast" or "prognosis" here, as they are more suited to medical texts than "predict/ion", which I see as more linked to astrology and similar mumbo-jumbo.

For what it's worth, "forecast model" gets 136,000 Google hits.

"Every day, health care managers must make decisions about service delivery without knowing what will happen in the future. Forecasts enable them to anticipate the future and plan accordingly. Good forecasts are the basis for short-, medium-, and long-term planning, and are essential input to all types of service production systems.

CRITICALLY-ILL NEUROLOGY PATIENTS: A CLINICAL COURSE PREDICTOR MODEL


Explanation:
That's what I'd say, turning the sentence around a bit. If you want to follow the Spanish pattern more closely, I'd put
A predictor model for the clinical course of critically-ill neurology patients.

"Critically-ill" is a good way of getting around "neurocritical", which only seems to go with "neurocritical care" in English.

Clinical course is a fairly common way of saying "evolución"

  -> Thanks, Neil. I googled "neurocritical" and only saw it hand in hand with "care". Hence my conclusion.

Model for Predicting the Evolution of [Disease in] the Neurocriical Patient


Explanation:
I don't think the answer is either 'progress' or 'outcome'.

It's very routine to speak of the 'evolution' of a disease. In this case, you could add 'disease' of leave it understood that it's the patient's disease. I think it's perfectly clear without saying 'disease'.

FWIW, I got 63,500,000 hits for ["evolution of the disease"+ neurological].

'Evolution' is a very common term referring to any kind of disease. It's characterizes the course of the disease neutrally. 'Progress' implies that the disease gets worse. 'Outcome' refers to the patient's final status . Here are some examples by authors with English-sounding names or institutions:

neutral  liz askew: your references are mostly "foreign" = non-native English/Also, your references are not specific to neurocritical care in the context of prediction models/

  -> The first reference is by a team from the University of Melbourne, Australia. The second is Italian. I couldn't check the third one. Do we have a case of linguistic profiling here? Do you think I'm not a native speaker because my name is Brazilian?

agree  David Brown: I believe this is almost correct, there are several and many references to "model to predict outcomes in traumatic brain injury",
