DMICE Students Compete in Finals of 2015 AMIA Student Design Challenge 

Two teams of students in the DMICE biomedical informatics program have made it to the “final four” in the third annual student design challenge of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA).With the theme “The Human Side of Big Data – Facilitating Human-Data Interaction.” the 2015 Challenge invited submissions that focus on novel and original ways to facilitate engagement between humans and computing data-analytic systems.

The first DMICE student team, comprised of Ashley Choi, Benjamin Cordier, Prerna Das, Ph.D., and Jason Li, M.S., will present on “Take a Breather: Empowering Adherence & Patient Centered Research through Interactive Data Visualization, Social Engagement, and Gamification in Patients with Sleep Apnea.”

The second team’s project is “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 top four teams will give oral presentations on Tuesday, November 17, 2015, as part of the AMIA 2015 Annual Symposium, to be held in San Francisco, CA.

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.
