Meaningful Use of Complex Medical Data

July 16th, 2012 by Erwin GianchandaniLeave a reply »

Organizers of the second annual symposium onMeaningful Use of Complex
Medical Data (MUCMD) – to be held in Los Angeles in mid-August — have
announced a call for participation. The symposium seeks to bring together
computer scientists, systems engineers, clinicians, and others “to explore
the opportunities and challenges introduced by the growing abundance of
digital data captured during the delivery of clinical care.”

>From the call for participation:

Every day hospitals and clinics around the world collect data from tens of
> thousands of practical therapeutic experiments in electronic health care
> records (EHRs), and the collective experience recorded in this data has
> potential to revolutionize the delivery of care, drive new medical
> discoveries, improve patient outcomes, and optimize practices within large
> health care organizations [more after the jump].

The Meaningful Use of Complex Medical Data (MUCMD) [is] an NIH sponsored
> symposium… The program includes invited talks, peer-reviewed poster
> presentations, panels, break-out sessions, and ample time for thoughtful
> discussion and robust debate. Topics include privacy preserving storage
> architectures, machine learning for clinical data, real-time decision
> support, health behavior tracking, monetization, and turning clinical data
> into actionable information. Additionally, MUCMD will sponsor a hack-a-thon
> with real clinical from over 50,000 patient episodes and a data competition
> hosted by Kaggle.

MUCMD will be hosted at the Children’s Hospital LA campus in Los Angeles
> [on] August 10-12…

Applications to attend and abstract submissions are now being accepted
through the symposium website. For additional information, send email to
