Electronic Medical Records

August 22 @ 10:00 am August 23 @ 5:30 pm EDT

The Electronic Medical Records Boot Camp is a two-day intensive boot camp of seminars and hands-on analytical sessions to provide an overview of electronic health data opportunities, statistical challenges, and latest techniques.

Despite the great potential, analyzing such large, scattered and heterogeneous observational patient data is still technically challenging. This two-day intensive workshop will go over opportunities and potentials of EMR/EHR for health and medical studies, statistical challenges and pitfalls for analyzing EMR/EHR, and the latest developments of multiple techniques to address those challenges, followed by hands-on computer lab sessions and case studies to put concepts into practice.

Investigators from any institution and from all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate.

Additional Information:

There are four requirements to attend this training:
1. Each participant must have an introductory background in statistics.
2. Each participant must be familiar with R.
3. Each participant must have a laptop/computer with latest versions of R and R-Studio downloaded and installed prior to the first day of the workshop. R and R-Studio are available for free download and installation on Mac, PC, and Linux devices.
4. Each participant will be required to apply for access to MIMIC-III data, requiring completion of specific HIPAA training to receive credentials.
