Learn more about the first Critical Care Datathon celebrated in Madrid
MIT - HCSC - UPM are bringing inter-professional critical care trainees and clinicians (from data novices to gurus), statisticians, data scientists and administrators together in the same room to tackle clinical problems with large datasets.
The event will be split into Conference (December the 1st) and Datathon (Dec the 1st, 2nd and 3rd).
This datathon will generate patient-centred or service-centred projects and research which can be published in scientific journals and ultimately make a real difference to patients.
The profiles that can attend the datathon are:
● Critical Care trainee.
● Critical Care clinician.
● Data Scientist.
● Computer Scientist.
If you wish to participate, you are required to bring your on device BYOD, a regular laptop with Wi-Fi connection will be enough.
There will be ‘roving mentors’ with a wide range of expertise to assist and provide advice on: exploring the problem you are addressing, developing a project, data visualisation and much more.
Previous Datathons held in Boston, London and Paris have been hugely popular, and have tackled topics such as:
● The relationship between lactic acidosis and mortality.
● The association between supra normal oxygen levels in the blood and survival after subarachnoid haemorrhage.
● Visualization of outcomes among obese patients in the ICU
Previous Datathons allowed the attending researchers to make the following publications
A variety of datasets will be available.
These include MIMIC and eICU databases (from MIT at Harvard and other US based hospitals running the Philips eICU system). This event is being organised in collaboration with Philips Healthcare and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston.
