Data Science in Healthcare: From Computer to Clinical Care
While data science holds great promise to transform healthcare, the successful development and application of data science solutions in healthcare is complicated by numerous factors such as healthcare culture, data literacy, complex workflows, and patient complexity. This talk will review broad types of data science applications in the hospital setting and, using case examples, demonstrate practical considerations in their development and deployment.
