Duke Electronic Health Records Study Design Workshop (EHR-SDW) 2023

Duke AI Health is pleased to announce the Duke Electronic Health Records Study Design Workshop (EHR-SDW) 2023. The workshop will be offered December 4th through 8th as a virtual five-day class that provides foundational lectures and hands-on studios on the fundamentals of working with and designing EHR based studies. The EHR-SDW is targeted toward individuals interested in learning about how to work with and conduct studies using electronic health records (EHR) data. EHR data are a widely available form of real-world data that have become standard in studies ranging from clinical trials, comparative effectiveness, risk prediction, and population health. The EHR-SDW will introduce the components of EHR data and introduce considerations for design of effective studies. In addition to didactic lectures, participants will get hands-on experience in working with publicly available tools to facilitate EHR studies (e.g., RxNorm, CCS codes, geocoding) as well as feedback on effective study designs that they will work on. The course will be conducted virtually via Zoom. This workshop is offered through Duke AI Health’s Health Data Science (HDS) program and builds on the success of the Electronic Health Records Study Design Workshop held in December 2022 and highly successful Machine Learning Schools, with 12 events held since 2017. The Duke Machine Learning Schools have reached hundreds of participants from academia and industry and including international audiences at the SingHealth/Duke NUS Medical School and the Duke Kunshan University campus. Our 2022 Duke Machine Learning Summer School attracted 140 participants from around the world, representing 41 universities, institutes, and corporations.
