3rd Workshop on Data Mining for Medical Informatics: Learning Health
Nov 12, 2016, Chicago, IL
To be held in conjunction with AMIA 2016 Annual Symposium
The life and biomedical sciences are massively contributing to the big data revolution, due to advances in genome sequencing technology and digital imaging, growth of clinical data warehouses, increased role of the patient in managing their own health information and rapid accumulation of biomedical knowledge. Under this context, data mining and machine learning techniques, with the goal of knowledge discovery and deriving data driven insights from various data sources, has played a more and more important role in medical informatics. Effective data mining approaches have been applied in many medical problems including drug development, personalized medicine, disease modeling, cohort study, comparative effectiveness research, etc. The main theme of the workshop this year is learning health, which aims to derive actionable and timely insights based on the real-world experience of millions of patients, and make them useful to clinicians, patients and all other healthcare stakeholders. This topic has received a lot of interests and debating recently. We would like to invite the researchers from both academia and industry who are interested in this topic to participate in this workshop, share their opinions and experience, as well as discuss future directions.
KDDM WG Data Competition. This is a new one-hour session that will be included in this year’s workshop: the KDDM WG Data Competition winner presentation. The task for the competition is surgical site infection prediction with a dataset extracted from a cohort of 7725 patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery, with a total of more than 4.5 million blood tests. The data sponsor is University hospital of North Norway (UNN). The data will contain all blood tests performed on these patients close in time to the time of surgery, including their numerical or categorical value. Eighty percent of the data (training data) will be released to the participants for model development; and the rest of the data will be held out for evaluation purpose. Participants will use the training data to construct a predictive model for identification of high-risk patients susceptible to SSI. The performance of the participants will be evaluated through quantitative predictive performance on an evaluation dataset and qualitative clinical relevance. The winner will be announced at the workshop along with their presentations.
This year's DMMI workshop will be co-located with the 2016 American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) Annual Symposium. For more information on the 1st or 2nd DMMI Workshop click here (2014, Washington, DC) or here (2015, San Francisco, CA).

|Title: The Power of Data in the Era of Cognitive Computing: The Next Frontier for Healthcare|
Abstract: Researchers and clinicians are increasingly aware that speeding up the quest for cures may hinge on the ability to make sense of vast, complex, and ever-changing information. Diagnosis and treatments require a tremendous understanding of medical literature, population health trends, patient histories, genetics, social determinants, and more. Cognitive systems can empower researchers and clinicians to deliver insights to their patients – faster and easier than previously possible. This talk will (a) introduce the basic concepts of cognitive computing and informatics in healthcare decision support, and (b) describe case studies where cognitive computing assists doctors in developing individualized, evidence-based treatment options for patients; enhances clinicians’ ability to find clinical trials for which their patient may be eligible; and discover ways to help oncologists and radiologists quickly and accurately analyze medical images to improve diagnosis and treatment.

|Title: Leveraging big healthcare data to answer important population health management questions|
Abstract: The availability of big data in healthcare and medicine is presenting unprecedented opportunities to advance in both personalized healthcare and population health management. In this talk, I will provide two examples of leveraging electronic medical records and claims data to draw insights into population health from both resource management and procedures perspective. I will discuss a network-based analysis drawing on nationwide healthcare data, which includes a novel metric to identify diagnosis comorbidity pairs between two generalized population subgroups, which can be particularly valuable in providing resource planning and targeted care for individuals from specific populations. Secondly, I will demonstrate how aggregate population-level Medicare data can provide value for physicians themselves, demonstrating how big data can be aggregated from multiple sources to provide insights into highly complex matters such as procedure choice.

Abstract: Addressing clinical challenges in assessing and responding to many patients’ risks of chronic diseases and related complications and their progression are complex, high-dimensional, information processing problems faced by time-constrained clinicians. This talk presents recent research on data-driven service innovations that indicate promising potential to deliver substantial cognitively-guided information to clinicians and patients for improving health care delivery and outcomes. We combine statistical machine learning, information visualization, and electronic health data to find (1) informative, contextualized, two-dimensional projections of disease risk assessment, (2) longitudinal trajectories of disease progression, and, (3) clinical pathways of the co-progression of multiple clinical events that are associated with chronic disease management. Insights from these studies can potentially result in new evidence to support clinicians in providing patient-centered treatment approaches and empower patients with chronic conditions to better manage the disease and its complications

Title: Mining Clinical Data: Why integrated repositories are the future.
Many institutions are creating data warehouses to support research and clinical operations. In most instances research warehouses are partial copies of the operational data. Alternately, researchers can only access the operational data by working through clinical IT staff. The Northwestern Medicine Enterprise Data Warehouse uses a different model. It is a single, integrated repository of clinical and research data on six million patients. From its initial design, it has served as a single, common repository for both research and clinical operations. This talk will discuss the structure and governance of this unusual model. We will present the benefits and challenges of this model in practice. Having a common repository allows research results to move more rapidly into practice. This talk will also discuss a number of projects that demonstrate model.
