5:05 PM Achieving Actionable Data Science Through Collaboration: Data Science and IT working together at Duke University
In a highly-entrepreneurial academic medical center environment, centralized and top-down control is rarely a viable way to launch a program of work broad enough to encompass novel research as well as its deployment among hospital and clinic patients. At Duke Health, the premier care provider in central North Carolina, Duke University data scientists have successfully collaborated with clinicians and IT staff to model opportunities for patient health improvement and see these models deployed in hospitals and clinics. Drs Huang and Blackwelder will outline the people- and technology-based processes behind the successful collaborations, and share fascinating examples of machine learning and AI applied to real-world healthcare problems.
