Information Sciences in Imaging 2012 Seminar Series: March

Title: 

Re-Engineering Clinical Data for Population Science and Comparative Effectiveness Research

Abstract: 

With the widespread deployment of Electronic Health Records and subsequent use of data from ‘real world’ patient care, clinical investigators have unprecedented opportunities in ‘real-time’ population science. 

In this talk, I will present research on patterns of care in longitudinal cohort data. I will focus on collaborative efforts to analyze data collected on breast cancer care at Stanford Hospital & Clinics and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF). 

I will present my group's work on informatics approaches for data integration, temporal mining, and network analysis that reveals how care is delivered using EHR and other sources.
