Advancing Analytics for Children's Hospitals: Call for Presentations & Proposals
Location: Lurie Children's
225 E. Chicago Ave.
Chicago, IL 60611
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 a one and a half day conference focused exclusively on building and implementing advanced and innovative analytics solutions for pediatric hospitals. Learn more about the upcoming conference.
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.
Topics of interest include
- Building infrastructure for innovative analytics: Topics could include presentations of novel hardware or software implementations, data architectures and pipelines, either from a high-level view or more detailed descriptions of transformative technologies.
- Data visualization, user interface design and decision support in the clinical context: Topics could include: data visualization techniques, defining the needs for clinician facing interfaces or training and user developments
- Success stories in analytics implementation for better outcomes: Examples of program and implementations that have been successful, as shown by high uptake by providers and by better health outcomes for patients. These might include the development and implementation of predictive models, wearable technology, innovative clinical apps, or rounding algorithms.
- Building the environment for innovative analytics: Programs that have focused on preparing hospital staff and clinicians for the use of these technologies, including governance efforts that seek to manage their rollout, specialized training for faculty and staff, change management strategies, and analytic team development.
We request proposals for three types of sessions
- Team proposals: The purpose of team proposals is to share a project that your team has worked on, and to allow each member of the team to present on the role they played, the challenges they faced, and successes they believe the team has achieved. These proposals will include an abstract that will represent the work of three to four team members (for example, a physician, an analyst and an engineer). The goal of these is to model and to explore the collaborative and interdisciplinary dynamic that successful analytic endeavors involve. Accepted team proposals will be offered 60 minute oral sessions.
- Oral presentation/poster: These proposals will look a lot like standard conference proposals, in which the proposer identifies a single problem and demonstrates the solution and learning that came from implementation. Oral presentations will be 15-20 minutes in length. Papers also may be submitted as posters.
- Roundtable proposals: The purpose of the roundtables will be to facilitate focused discussion about emerging issues and problems facing colleagues who are trying to develop their hospital’s analytics capacity. Roundtables will be 60 minutes in length.
Abstracts are due February 1, 2019.
