Informatics Research Seminar: The RISE Registry– How Compiling Clinical Data Might Improve Medical Care

February 21, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Speaker: Megan Clowse, MD
Presented from Duke University

Broadcast Link: Seminar

At Duke, all seminars live or broadcast will be held in Hock Auditorium from 4-5 pm.


In this seminar we will discuss the American College of Rheumatology’s RISE Registry, a registry of electronic medical record data pulled directly from clinical visits.  In just a few years, this Registry has pulled together larger datasets than ever seen in Rheumatology, but is the data useful and can it improve care?

Dr. Clowse earned her Master’s in Public Health, with an emphasis on Population and Family Health, from the University of California, Los Angeles, and her medical degree from Vanderbilt Medical School.  She completed her Internal Medicine residency and Rheumatology fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital before joining the Duke faculty in 2005.

Dr. Clowse is now the Associate Director of Duke Forge, bringing her clinical and clinical research expertise to this data-analytics team.  She is also the Director of the Duke/DCRI RISE Data Analytics Center and a long-term member of the American College of Rheumatology’s Research and Publications Committee.
