Event description

Description

Speaker: Leigh Warren, Clinical Research Fellow, Department of Surgery and Cancer, Imperial College London

Transitions of care or ‘handovers’ between providers, teams and settings are a major contributor to medical error and inefficient service provision. To improve these processes and measure the impact of interventions, we need better ways of measuring them. This session will focus on how routinely collected electronic health record (EHR) data can be used to measure clinical processes and identify targets for transition of care interventions.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand how transitions of care contribute to medical errors in a modern hospital setting

  2. Acquire new insights on the use of routinely collected EHR 'big data' to monitor clinical processes

  3. Contribute to the development of targets for transition of care research and interventions

Speaker bio:

Leigh Warren is a General Surgery Trainee and PhD candidate in the Department of Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College London. His current research is focused on measuring and improving transitions of care using big data and digital technology.
