The Informatics Research Seminar Series is sponsored by Duke University and a collaboration with UNC-Chapel Hill, NCCU, UNC-Charlotte, and ECU. This series explores key areas in Health Informatics and include research results, overview of programs of research, basic, applied, and evaluative projects, as well as research from varied epistemological stances.
The presentation on “Data Collection: Precision Medicine and Learning Health Systems” will describe how data networks store, display and transmit health related information in various forms encompassing paper, digital communication systems, and mobile computing systems. Large scale data collection efforts acquire health related data from multiple sources via health data networks and systems. Issues and challenges of large scale data collection efforts in gathering high quality health data will be discussed. Technologies that address some of the challenges of large scale health data collection systems will be introduced.
Precision medicine and learning health systems are current initiatives in large scale health data collection. These initiatives extend the concepts of health data networks to include complex analysis and dissemination of multisource health related information. The aims and challenges of these initiatives will be discussed. The presenter will share aspects of her doctoral research focusing on technologies and progress toward a nationwide learning health system.
