Biomedical Informatics Group – Friday, May 30, 2014; Noon – 1.pm.; 910 Madison, room 502


The rapid increase in available data about patients, including claims, electronic health records (EHRs), consumer and ‘omics, along with enterprise approaches to managing large cohorts, has opened big opportunities to scale research and identify new findings. New platforms, including open source and commercial tools are providing research teams with new ways to handle the complexity of these data sets. This presentation will include case studies and review the functionalities of translational bioinformatics tools in open source systems (e.g. i2b2, tranSMART) and how they are leveraged with commercial biomedical informatics applications (e.g. Qlikview, packaged reporting views). The presentation will also cover emerging commercial approaches for tools and data sharing within life sciences organizations.

Please join us for this exciting presentation. Lunch will be served.
