MIT H@cking Medicine is teaming up with the Critical Care team from MIT IMES and BIDMC to host the the Critical Data Marathon, which will take place on January 3rd - 5th 2014 at MIT. The event will bring together together various disciplines – computer science, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, biostatistics, epidemiology, informatics, business, health policy, and the social sciences – from both academia and industry, with the goal of learning from routinely collected clinical data, as outlined in a recent discussion paper from the Institute of Medicine.
The event will make use of the MIMIC-II database. It is possible to attend to the event remotely, whether as an individual or in a group. Individual participants can view the conference live and interact through twitter. However, we strongly encourage remote participants to host a local version of the event. We will be connecting groups with bi-directional video to the event, allowing for live interaction. In addition to this, local groups will be given remote access to the MIMIC-II database in order to participate in the hands-on workshop on clinical data. Please register remote participation.
