Prof. Nitesh Chawla, University of Notre Dame
Date & Time: February 17, 2015 16:00
Venue: Lecture Hall, B Block, 03rd Floor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Kanwal Rekhi (KReSIT) Building
In this talk, I will discuss our research in leveraging data for the common good. I will provide an overview of different research initiatives in my research program that big societal challenges, but focus on our research initiative in patient-centered outcomes and population health management. Faced with unsustainable costs and enormous amounts of under-utilized data, health care needs more efficient practices, research, and tools to harness the full benefits of personal health and healthcare-related data. To that end, I will discuss a patient-centered population health management framework that can help us move from insufficient healthcare to abundant. I will also review our various pilots that are in play at various partner healthcare organizations and schools. This talk is part of the IITB Healthcare Consortium Seminar Series.
