Patient Characteristics associated with Venous Thromboembolic Events: a Cohort Study Using Pooled Electronic Health Record Data

submitted by: Jamia
Abstract: Objective: To demonstrate the potential of de-identified clinical data from multiple healthcare systems using different electronic health records (EHR) to be efficiently used for very large retrospective cohort studies. Materials and methods: Data of 959,030 patients, pooled from multiple different healthcare systems with distinct EHR, were obtained. Data were standardized and normalized using common ontologies, searchable through a HIPAA-complaint, patient de-identified web...

AMIA Board White Paper on Biomedical Informatics Definition and Core Competencies

submitted by: Jamia
Abstract The AMIA biomedical informatics (BMI) core competencies have been designed to support and guide graduate education in BMI, the core scientific discipline underlying the breadth of the field's research, practice, and education. The core definition of BMI adopted by AMIA specifies that BMI is ‘the interdisciplinary field that studies and pursues the effective uses of biomedical data, information, and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making, motivated...
