Event Description

We invite you to join us at this virtual workshop, which will focus on data science-driven solutions in clinical practice at NYP.

Recent blossoming in data science and machine learning techniques has enabled data-driven solutions to health care delivery in a more efficient and effective manner. Since 2018, NYP IT Transformation Data Science Team has partnered with clinical experts and operational managers from Columbia and Cornell, developed and deployed machine learning algorithms, and successfully delivered a number of data science solutions to the bedside. NYP is now expanding data science team and offerings, and young talents to join this effort are welcome.

This workshop, organized by the DSI Health Analytics Center, will walk through the complete lifecycle of a few data science projects – from project creation and development, to deployment and evaluation – that have shown success in improving clinical outcome and enhancing operational efficiencies. The workshop will start with introduction of data science program at NYP, short talks by invited speakers, and the general discussion of existing and future research opportunities at NYP.

This all virtual workshop will take place Thursday, April 7th from 3pm to 4:30pm on zoom.
