Your "Hitchhiker's Guide" to Medicine's "Tower of Babel"

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

American health care has reliability problems in treating individuals or groups, and it can’t easily tell us which drugs, devices, or procedures work in large groups. One key reason is the medical “Tower of Babel” with its thousands of medical codes (13,000 in ICD-9; 68,000 in ICD-10), separate lab codes (LOINC), and radiology codes; plus issues of terminologies, ontologies, “dirty” data versus  normalized data, semantic search, machine learning, noSQL vs. SQL databases, natural language processing. Could you use some "translations"?

This session is your guide to medicine's "Tower of Babel.” It gets you past the coding babble so you know how to create “smart data” that drives innovation. It shows how to use paper data, notes, dictated text, and database information all at once in a new kind of medical record—one effective for patient (and provider) analytics and for searching large data volumes with simple queries.

Learning Objectives:
1. Patient Adherence to Medication.
2. Data normalization that scrubs “dirty” data.
3. Site selection decisions for clinical trials.
4. Care coordination in hospitals, clinics.
5. FDA-compliant management of adverse events. 6) Analytics for treatments used and outcomes produced.
