Event description

Description

This is the 5th annual Critical Care data weekend, bringing together teams of clinicians and data scientists. Critical Care Data London invites clinicians and data scientists, experts and novices to come and explore an iconic clinical data repository with talks from experts in electronic health records, 'big data' and database design.


Critical Care - Health Informatics Collaborative (CC-HIC) is an NIHR-supported UK collaboration between the five Biomedical Research Centres based at Cambridge, Guy's & St Thomas', Imperial, Oxford and UCL. Ten hospitals with fifteen intensive care units have created a repository containing data from 20,000 admissions with more than 120 million observations.


The increasing wealth of patient data available through electronic health records has created a surge in research funding and industry interest in health data analytics. Challenges in extracting knowledge from health record databases, however, are significant. The event will strengthen cross-disciplinary collaboration around secondary analysis of electronic health record data, helping to pave the way for reliable knowledge to be translated into action, for the benefit of patients. This year we will be running the event as a pre-conference course of the Intensive Care Society State of the Art annual meeting. Previous years have been a fantastic success with attendees gaining valuable skills, forming collaborative groups and projects ending in publication.


An introduction to the CC-HIC will be followed by an opportunity to tackle real clinical questions in small teams with experienced clinicians, data scientists, statisticians and programmers. There will be hands on tutorials introducing the R statistics package including data visualisation tips to produce beautiful graphs.
