BMI is hosting two breakout sessions at the 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting on October 23, 2019.
Intelligent Algorithms in Medicine: It’s Not So Simple, John Windle, MD
Dr. Windle’s research in health information systems design and use focuses on efforts to optimize and standardize services for data capture and decision support. While the capabilities of AI and intelligence techniques hold promise, the application within healthcare systems poses unique challenges. This discussion will look at how these new technologies can improve healthcare research and practices.
Access and Use of EHR Data for CTR Research – CRANE (Clinical Research Analysis Environment), W. Scott Campbell, PhD, MBA
Data captured and stored in the electronic health record represents fundamental observation data instrumental to multiple research objectives. This presentation will review current capabilities of the CRANE data warehouse to support CTR research projects. Examples of ongoing research efforts will be used for illustration purposes and discussion. Partner involvement and access to CRANE will be reviewed.
Learn more about the 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting here.
There are currently 11 projects in development directly resulting from CRANE resources.
