UT Southwestern Events Calendar

On behalf of the Clinical Informatics Center, Dr. Chris Lehmann and Dr. Ling Chu, please find below an invitation to the January 2023 Clinical Informatics Research Colloquium. You will also receive a meeting invitation for the colloquium. 

 

The Clinical Informatics Center at UT Southwestern hosts the Clinical Informatics Research Colloquium to highlight the outstanding work done at UT Southwestern and partnering organizations in the clinical informatics space. This is part of our effort to bring clinical informatics, research informatics, and other data and informatics scientists together at UT Southwestern to foster exchange of ideas, collaboration, and development of grants, papers, and novel projects. 

 

We are very pleased that our January Colloquium will feature Charles P. Friedman, Ph.D.

 

Dr. Friedman will present his talkComputable Biomedical Knowledge to Enable Mass Action in Learning Health Systems”. 

 

Charles P. Friedman, is the Josiah Macy Jr. Professor of Medical Education and Chair of the Department of Learning Health Sciences at the University of Michigan Medical School. In recent years, he has focused his academic interests and activities on the concept of Learning Health Systems, and the socio-technical infrastructure required to sustain them.  He is editor-in-chief of the open-access journal Learning Health Systems and co-chair of the movement to Mobilize Computable Biomedical Knowledge.

 

He was recently awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Lucerne in Switzerland for his contributions to the science of Learning Health Systems. 

Prior to coming to Michigan, Friedman held executive positions at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Immediately prior to his work in the government, Dr. Friedman was Associate Vice Chancellor for Biomedical Informatics, and Founding Director of the Center for Biomedical Informatics at the University of Pittsburgh. 

 

Abstract: 

We stand on the verge of a second knowledge revolution--the first being the introduction of the printing press--made possible by digital technology.  This second revolution, achievable by creating a FAIR ecosystem of knowledge represented in machine executable forms, enables health improvement at scale through high-functioning learning health systems.

 

The colloquium will be hosted on and recorded by Zoom. Details are listed below. The date and time are Tuesday, January 24, 2023, 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. 

 

We hope you can join us. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
