    The dissonant relationship between clinicians and the EHR is well-documented. Personal, organizational, and external factors also influence clinician well-being and contribute to burnout. This session will review the current state of clinician burnout, describe drivers of clinician well-being and demonstrate opportunities for informaticists to respond to the burnout problem.


    OCTOBER 5, 2022 

    Event Type: DBMI Seminar
    Title: "EHR Data Quality in Genetic Research: Why You Should Worry & What You Can Do About It"

    WATCH THE RECORDING HERE

    lisa






    Lisa Bastarache, MS
    Research Associate Professor, DBMI

    Learning Objectives:
    1. Describe how biobanks are used for genetic study.
    2. Understand high-throughput phenotyping techniques.
    3. Learn how to conduct replication experiments with biobank data.

    Abstract:
    Genetics researchers increasingly rely on EHRs as a source of phenotypic data. While EHRs have enormous potential to help us further map the phenotype/genotype terrain, generating accurate phenotypes using real-world EHR data can be challenging. In this talk, I will discuss the way EHR data quality impacts genetics research with concrete examples from both the common/complex and rare disease domains, and describe ways that analysts can detect error and enhance the quality of their EHR-based phenotypes.
     


    SEPTEMBER 21, 2022

    Event Type: DBMI Seminar
    Title: "Enabling Clinical Research and Innovation through a Clinical Informatics Core"

    Allison McCoy, PhD, FAMIA, ACHIP
    Assistant Professor, DBMI
    Director, Clinical Informatics Core, Vanderbilt Clinical Informatics Center (VCLIC)



    Abstract:
    Clinical researchers frequently require special data extracts or unique electronic health record intervention development, often on a short timeline. It can be hard to meet the needs of researchers using standard IT processes. The Vanderbilt's Clinical Informatics Core facility serves the unique needs of researchers using dedicated informatics resources. The core offers the following services to researchers: clinical data extraction and analysis, design and build of EHR interventions, predictive model implementation, value set and logic development, and general clinical informatics consultation. In its first year of operation, the core has facilitated the completion of grant submissions, funded grant research, and publications that would not have been previously feasible. Investigators are satisfied with the cost, quality, and timeliness of the work completed by the core, and they are likely to both recommend the core to colleagues and use the core for future work.

    Learning Objectives:
    - Describe the unique informatics needs of researchers.
    - Define a research core facility and the special capabilities and requirements of a core.
    - Describe how an informatics core facility can meet the unique needs of researchers.

    Event Type: DBMI Seminar
    Topic: "Improving Use of Health Information System: Educational Approaches"

    WATCH THE PRESENTATION HERE

    Abstract:
    The benefits of health information technology (HIT) depend on the way they are being used. Education and training are often needed to move from basic to advanced, value-adding use. This talk will describe a number of educational approaches we used to address non-technical challenges of using electronic medical records (EMRs) in primary care: exploratory (productive failure) learning, video tutorials, and simulation. The challenges addressed by these approaches included improving EMR data quality at the point of data entry, use of advanced EMR features for chronic disease management, and impact of the EMR on patient-clinician communication. While these approaches are promising, there is a need for innovation and diversity of educational approaches to address use of advanced HIT features, identified challenges with HIT, and usage in context, as well as for rigorous evaluation.

    Learning Objectives:
    -Describe the rationale behind these three educational approaches.
    -Explain the strengths and limitations of each of the educational approaches presented.
    -Select an appropriate educational approach for improving use of current and future HIT (e.g. AI-based applications).


    MARCH 16, 2022 - 12:00 PM (CT)

    Event Type: DBMI Seminar
    Topic: "Getting to the Heart of It: Making Health Information Actionable for Patients with Cardiac Conditions"

    WATCH THE PRESENTATION HERE

    ruth
    Ruth Masterson Creber, PhD, MSc, RN, FAHA, FAAN
    Associate Professor in the Department of Population Health Sciences and Cardiothoracic Surgery
    Weill Cornell Medicine

    Abstract:
    Ruth Masterson Creber, Ph.D. M.Sc., RN, is an associate professor in the Department of Population Health Sciences and cardiothoracic surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine. She leads the Patient Decision Support lab at Weill Cornell Medicine. As a trained nurse, epidemiologist and health informatician, she has an independent, interdisciplinary program of research focused on using consumer health informatics tools to support patients with cardiovascular disease management across the care continuum. She will present strategies for making health information actionable for patients who are managing complex cardiac conditions.

    Learning Objectives:
    -Identify two strategies for developing patient centered consumer health informatics tools.
    -Describe how to measure comprehension and why we need to move beyond preferences when evaluating tools with patients.
    -Describe why we have an ethical responsibility to return information to patients.
