Every day hospitals and clinics around the world collect data from tens of thousands of practical therapeutic experiments in electronic health care records (EHRs), and the collective experience recorded in this data has potential to revolutionize the delivery of care, drive new medical discoveries, improve patient outcomes, and optimize practices within large health care organizations.

The Meaningful Use of Complex Medical Data (MUCMD) symposium brings together a multidisciplinary community of researchers, clinicians, engineers, and other innovators to explore the opportunities and challenges involved in applying computational methods to this data. The program includes invited talks, peer-reviewed poster presentations, panels, break-out sessions, and ample time for thoughtful discussion and robust debate. Topics include privacy preserving storage architectures, machine learning for clinical data, real-time decision support, health behavior tracking, monetization, and turning clinical data into actionable information. Additionally, MUCMD will sponsor a hack-a-thon with real clinical from over 50,000 patient episodes and a data competition hosted by Kaggle.

MUCMD will be hosted at the Children’s Hospital LA campus in Los Angeles, August 10-12. Applications to attend and abstract submissions are now being accepted at http://mucmd.org.  For additional information, send an email toinfo@mucmd.org.
