An open-access high performance computing system for developing research applications (apps)

Despite the promise of big data, little evidence has been generated for clinical practice with data driven systems. A new model for collaborative access, exploration, and analyses of integrated clinical data will be presented with a standard database, Medical Information Mart for Intensive Care - III (MIMIC III), for translational clinical research. The proposed model addresses the significant disconnect between data collection at the point of care and translational clinical research.

A Look at Real-Time Data and Use in Analytics Related to Therapy and Treatment

Intensive care units house the sickest and most technologically-dependent of patients. In these environments, patient care and therapeutic interventions occur and are carried out in real-time and the impact of technology and information access on sustaining life is essential. Yet, decision-making is not limited to what is captured within the electronic health record. Access to real-time information is essential for the front-line clinician.

AMIA CIS-WG Presents - The Informatics Paper Club of the Air XV

The Informatics Paper Club of the Air presented by the AMIA CIS-WG is a regularly scheduled Paper Club series that will address the gap in knowledge and performance by an ongoing review of literature and by exposing our clinical informaticists to evidence-based approaches and strategies with discussions centered on incorporating those strategies into their practices. 

The following paper will be discussed:

The Learning Health System-Overview and Update

The AMIA Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Working Group proposes a webinar on the Learning Health System (LHS).  The LHS is defined as a system “in which progress in science, informatics, and care culture align to generate new knowledge as an ongoing, natural by-product of the care experience, and seamlessly refine and deliver best practices for continuous improvement in health and healthcare.”  The LHS vision “aims to mobilize and empower multiple and diverse stakeholders to collaboratively realize a national-scale (and ultimately global), person-centered, continuous and rapid learning heal

Integrated ICU Checklist in EHR

The AMIA Intensive Care Informatics Working Group is proud to present this webinar. 

The value of the ICU checklist has been recognized and validated in multiple studies, yet its adoption is not universal. One of the most challenging barriers for adoption is lack of integration within the EHR. Most EHR vendors do not offer a prebuilt tool that can be readily utilized. In this presentation, we will demonstrate the end result of development and optimization of the electronic ICU check list and how it is currently used across all ICUs in an academic medical center.

Workflow Analysis: Opening Pandora's Box

The AMIA Evaluation and People and Organizational Issues Working Groups are proud to present this webinar.

Workflow is considered a key element for the success in design and implementation of health information technologies. Workflow studies are needed to understand current practice as well as evaluate the impact of health information technologies in quality, safety, cost and efficiency of care. The researcher and designers generally use typical workflow analysis techniques such as qualitative theme analysis, time and motion analysis.

Addressing Current Issues in Interoperability and Health Information Exchange (IHIE) - Introduction to the AMIA IHIE Discussion Forum

This webinar will introduce the newly created AMIA discussion forum on Interoperability and Health Information Exchange and discuss its goals and planned activities vis-a-vis current challenges in clinical data interoperability, data exchange, and data aggregation.
