Comprehensive Care Program featured in New York Times Magazine

By | News | No Comments

This week’s issue of the New York Times Magazine features the article “Trying to Put a Value on the Doctor-Patient Relationship,” which profiles Dr. David Meltzer’s unique Comprehensive Care Program (CCP) study. The CCP is an experiment in returning to a now-uncommon model for the doctor-patient relationship, in which patients receive consistent care from one provider whether they are outpatient or in the hospital.

The CRI has proudly been a part of the CCP study since it began; our Applications Development team built the custom dashboard and notification system that comprise the technological infrastructure for the study. The dashboard is used in the clinic to collect study information and integrate it with patients’ electronic medical records, and the notification system, which was the first of its kind at UCM, alerts physicians when patients enrolled in the study visit the emergency department or are admitted to the hospital.

“The true value of the collaboration is in combining the clinical expertise and data from University of Chicago with the machine learning expertise at Google.”

With the recent publication of the first paper to come out of the University of Chicago’s collaboration with Google, our director Sam Volchenboum sat down with The Forefront for a Q&A about the project. Read the interview to learn more about how the researchers leveraged EHR data from the CRDW for the development of new predictive algorithms for heathcare, how patient privacy is protected throughout the process, and where Sam thinks the future of EHR data mining could take us.

How Health Care Changes When Algorithms Start Making Diagnoses

By | News | No Comments

Machine learning algorithms are getting better and better at predicting and diagnosing disease — even though sometimes, researchers can’t fully explain why. In a recent paper supported by CRI effort and CRDW data, researchers from the University of Chicago, Stanford University, the University of California, San Francisco, and Google determined that these algorithms could use patterns in patient data to predict diseases and the likelihood of certain medical outcomes with extraordinary accuracy.

In the Harvard Business Review, CRI Director Sam Volchenboum and Immuta Chief Privacy Officer and Legal Engineer Andrew Burt write, “This future is alarming, no doubt, due to the power that doctors and patients will start handing off to machines. But it’s also a future that we must prepare for — and embrace — because of the impact these new methods will have and the lives we can potentially save.”
