MIT Critical Datathon 2015



The MIT Critical Datathon is back!

Registration deadline is September 15, 2015.

This weekend long (September 25-27) event brings together clinicians, data scientists and innovators in healthcare to address current problems in intensive care. The datathon focuses on the Multiparameter Intelligent Monitoring in Intensive Care (MIMIC) III database – a large database of over 60,000 patients which contains rich information about those admitted to the intensive care unit at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in the last decade. Using the MIMIC-III critical care database, participants will form teams to work together on publishable research studies. 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.


Registration deadline is September 15, 2015.
