2019 AMIA Corporate Partner Education: Lunch and Learn Session
Tuesday, March 26- 12:00 – 1:00 PM PT
Powering the next generation of applications in Clinical Informatics
The next wave of applications in clinical informatics will be highly data-intensive and make heavy use of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and interoperability. This session discusses the rapid evolution of Health IT and the components of the ideal healthcare development platform, as well as some exciting examples of industry applications being built on it.
The participant will learn:
- Why technologies as complex as AI, hinge on the ability to communicate and exchange information with existing electronic systems.
- Why artificial neural networks have become the most popular AI technique in medicine and what is needed to support them.
- How FHIR and REST APIs provide the foundation for modern healthcare application development
- Why precision medicine requires the ingestion and analysis of data that no human can meaningfully analyze.
- How collecting device data and leveraging AI can reduce overall health care costs
