BIG DATA & HEALTHCARE ANALYTICS: A HIMSS EVENT
BOSTON, Oct. 22-23, 2018
Adam Wright, PhD, FACMI is an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a senior scientist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. His research focuses on electronic health records and clinical decision support systems. He is the principal investigator of two NIH R01s: one focused on enhancing clinical problem lists using data mining and natural language processing and the other focused on improving clinical decision support using anomaly detection. In addition to his research, Dr. Wright teaches Harvard’s introductory biomedical informatics courses, teaches medical students in the healthcare policy and clinical epidemiology courses and chairs the Department of Biomedical Informatics’ curriculum committee. Dr. Wright has a PhD in biomedical informatics from Oregon Health and Science University and a BS in mathematical and computational sciences from Stanford University.
This final session pulls the day together as practicing clinicians from Partners HealthCare walk through several analytics use cases. Attendees will learn how the clinicians used analytics to address and solve real-world problems, and also gain insight into how the team operationalizes, executes, and iterates analytic solutions.
Importantly, the speakers will discuss how they combine analytics with necessary modifications to the EMR for clinical decision support, and the impact this has on clinician workflow and physician burnout.
