Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Virginia are excited to announce the Advancing Analytics for Children's Hospitals conference, a one and a half day conference focused exclusively on building and implementing advanced and innovative analytics solutions for pediatric hospitals.
Pediatric hospitals face unique barriers to the implementation of advanced analytic solutions including small cohorts of patients, the need for long-term follow up, different medical morbidities from adults, and limited technical resources. This conference will bring together an inter-disciplinary group of clinicians, data scientists, and computer engineers with expertise in this area from across the country to exchange ideas, share solutions and learn how to address some of these problems. Topics may include predictive models for low-incidence conditions, ingestion of actionable genomics data into the medical record, best practices for decision support, and building a culture in the hospital that is capable of implementing these new techniques.
We invite individuals involved with building capacity for these analytics solutions to participate and bring their experiences to share. The goals of the conference include exchange of ideas and solutions, fostering collaborations and creating a sustainable infrastructure for collaborative work. We are interested in hearing from:
We know that advancing the analytics capacity of children’s hospitals requires significant inter-disciplinary effort, learning, and culture change. We look forward to hearing about your work.
We welcome abstracts that describe case studies, overviews of key topics or implementation efforts that bring advanced analytic techniques and precision medicine to the bedside. Abstracts must be submitted by February 1, 2019.
