About Our Department
The Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) is one of 27 academic departments in the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).
The mission of DMICE is to provide leadership, discovery and dissemination of knowledge in clinical informatics, clinical epidemiology, and bioinformatics / computational biology. This mission is fulfilled through programs of research, education, and service.
Congratulations to Adam Wright
Adam Wright, Ph.D. '07, was elected into the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI) this fall.
Wright, currently an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical
School and a scientist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, was
the first person to receive a Ph.D. in biomedical informatics at Oregon
Health & Science University.
Dr. Wright won the John A. Resko Award for Outstanding Dissertation in the School of Medicine in 2007.
DMICE faculty Joan Ash, Ph.D., and David Dorr, M.D., M.S., currently collaborate with Wright on several of his grants from the National Institutes of Health.
This year's inductees will be formally inducted on Sunday, November 15, 2015, at the annual reception and dinner of the College held in conjunction with the American Medical Informatics Association 2015 Annual Symposium in San Francisco, California.
DMICE Students Win AMIA Student Design Challenge for Second Consecutive Year
A team of clinical informatics students from the biomedical informatics program at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) has won the 2015 student design challenge of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA). The winner was announced on November 18, 2015, at the AMIA Annual Symposium, held in San Francisco, CA.
Two teams of students in the Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) biomedical informatics program made it to the “final four” in the competition, which had the theme, “The Human Side of Big Data – Facilitating Human-Data Interaction.”
The team that took first place presented “Learning from the Data: Exploring a Hepatocellular Carcinoma Registry Using Visual Analytics to Improve Multidisciplinary Clinical Decision-Making." Team members include Michelle Hribar, Ph.D., L. Nelson Sanchez-Pinto, M.D., Kate Fultz Hollis, M.S., Gene Ren, and Deborah Woodcock, M.B.A.
The second student team from OHSU, which took honorable mention (fourth place), was comprised of bioinformatics students Ashley Choi, Benjamin Cordier, Prerna Das, Ph.D., and Jason Li, M.S. They presented “Take a Breather: Empowering Adherence and Patient Centered Research through Interactive Data Visualization, Social Engagement, and Gamification in Patients with Sleep Apnea.”
Both teams presented posters at the AMIA Symposium on November 16 and, as finalists, gave oral presentations on November 17, 2015. In 2014, the one OHSU team that entered the Student Design Challenge took first place with its prototype of a mobile app that captures children’s drawing and accompanying narratives to better facilitate child-provider communication. Fultz Hollis, Hribar and Woodcock were on both the 2014 and 2015 teams that took first place.
Hribar was funded by a training grant to OHSU from the National Library of Medicine.
