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

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 papers will be discussed:

Health Natural Language Processing Center (hNLP)

The Health Natural Language Processing (hNLP) Center targets a key challenge to current hNLP research and health-related human language technology development: the lack of health-related language data. Without shared data, the research community cannot build on each other’s scientific progress as they do in other disciplines where massive amounts of data are available. Even worse, the stakeholders and consumers of hNLP technology in health discovery and care have little access to robust hNLP technology, and are left with needing to implement all methods from scratch on their own data.

Participatory Design in Biomedical Informatics - Process, Benefits & Challenges

Biomedical informatics is intrinsically an interdisciplinary field, drawing on theory, methods, and expertise from multiple fields. When it comes to human-centered design of health information technology, biomedical informatics regularly draws on concepts from human factors engineering, usability, and sociotechnical systems. To date, however, the field of Design is underexplored and underutilized in biomedical informatics. Theory and Methods from the Design field, when paired with multiple other theoretical domains, can assist us with improving how health information technology works.

i2b2 Clinical NLP Data Sets

This webinar will give a tour of the i2b2 clinical data sets that have been developed for the i2b2 shared tasks since 2006.  The topics covered by the data sets include de-identification, smoking status classification, diagnosis of obesity and its comorbidities, medication extraction, concepts, assertions, and relations, coreference resolution, temporal relations, heart disease risk factors, and research domains for psychiatry.  All data sets are distributed through i2b2.org/NLP with a data use agreement.

Enhancing Rigor and Transparency in Translational Research - Adopting Tools that Support Reproducible Research

Reproducible research -- in which data generation, analysis and documentation is sufficient so that others may replicate results and the research process -- is a key component of implementing rigor and transparency in research.  Investigators have a responsibility to implement reproducible research practices, yet there are many challenges to doing so in a collaborative research environment within an academic medical center.  We will present an overview of reproducible research through motivating examples, but our focus will be on demonstrating recent advances in tools for the implementation

Funding agency perspectives: the current landscape for human factors & social science research within informatics

The AMIA People and Organizational Issues Working Group and Evaluation Working Group are proud to co-sponsor this webinar. 
The purpose of this webinar is to learn about federal agency priorities for human factors and social science research within informatics. Leaders from NLM, ONC, AHRQ, and NSF will present their strategic and funding priorities as related to these domains. Webinar participants will be invited to ask questions regarding these priorities.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, the learner should be better able to:
