Announcing a new conference to advance analytic capacity in children’s hospitals
SAVE THE DATE: June 5-6, 2019, Chicago
CALL FOR PAPERS: Due Feb 1, 2019
Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Virginia are excited to announce Advancing Analytics for Children's Hospitals<https://www.luriechildrens.org/en/events/advancing-analytics-for-childrens-hospitals/>, a one and a half day conference focused exclusively on building and implementing advanced and innovative analytics solutions for pediatric hospitals.
Pediatric hospitals face unique barriers to the implementation of advanced analytic solutions including small cohorts of patients, the need for long-term follow up, different medical morbidities from adults, and limited technical resources. This conference will bring together an inter-disciplinary group of clinicians, data scientists, and computer engineers with expertise in this area from across the country to exchange ideas, share solutions and learn how to address some of these problems. Topics may include predictive models for low-incidence conditions, ingestion of actionable genomics data into the medical record, best practices for decision support, and building a culture in the hospital that is capable of implementing these new techniques.
We invite individuals involved with building capacity for these analytics solutions to participate and bring their experiences to share. The goals of the conference include exchange of ideas and solutions, fostering collaborations and creating a sustainable infrastructure for collaborative work. We are interested in hearing from:
* Analytics leaders
* Physicians and nurses
* Information technology leaders
We know that advancing the analytics capacity of children’s hospitals requires significant inter-disciplinary effort, learning, and culture change. We look forward to hearing about your work.
