Collaborating Across Institutions: Experiences and Lessons of our Colleagues

Informatics research that crosses institutional boundaries brings challenges, particularly when research questions focus on contextual factors, evaluation, and other people or organizational issues. This webinar will bring researchers together to participate in a facilitated discussion of experiences in collaborating across institutions. Topics will include collaborating on grant proposals, IRB issues, communication tools and strategies, collaborative writing, international collaborations, how the Working Groups can help, and others identified by participants.

Dental Patient Record Priorities

What are the priorities for hospital or clinic patients to have dental as well as medical patient records available in the facility's EHR? Let us imagine that hospitals and clinics want to know, for the sake of quality and safety of care, for both inpatients and outpatients, what each patient's dental treatment record shows. Patients who should have a dental record on file in the EHR would be underserved with regard to oral health care access if a dental record were not available. The first impact would be to highlight which patients have not been receiving routine preventive dental care.

PIC-SURE: A BD2K Center of Excellence creating an information commons for biomedical data centered on the patient

The AMIA Genomics and Translational Bioinformatics working group is proud to present their latest webinar.  This webinar will present the Harvard School of Medicine’s PIC-SURE Center of Excellence for Big Data Computing- Patient-Centered Information Commons: Standardized Unification of Research Elements. PIC-SURE was established in September 2014 as part of the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Initiative’s Centers of Excellence for Big Data Computing program.

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

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. 

Wrong-patient orders (placing the right order on the wrong patient) will be our theme for the next episodes. The following three papers will be discussed during this webinar:

The DIGITizE Action Collaborative: Working together to expand clinical IT support for genetics

Ultimately the genetics community will need to rely on electronic health records (EHRs) to make the benefits of genetics widely accessible to the patient population. Clinicians will require clear, real-time updated displays conveying the implications of a patient's genetic results. They will also need various forms of automated clinical decision support (CDS) to ensure they apply these results properly over time. Researchers will also require mechanisms that enable them to access clinical genetic data in a manner that protects patient privacy.

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

The Informatics Paper Club of the Air presented by the AMIA CIS-WG is a regularly scheduled Journal 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. 

Wrong-patient orders (placing the right order on the wrong patient) will be our theme for the next episodes. The following two papers will be discussed during this webinar:

Beyond Accuracy: Creating interoperable and scalable text-mining services for accelerating discovery

The explosion of biomedical big data and information in the past decade or so has created new opportunities for discoveries to improve the treatment and prevention of human diseases. But the large body of knowledge—mostly exists as free text in journal articles for humans to read—presents a grand new challenge: individual scientists around the world are increasingly finding themselves overwhelmed by the sheer volume of research literature and are struggling to keep up to date and to make sense of this wealth of textual information.
