A Critical Care Datathon aims to bring together clinicians, data scientists, researchers and anyone interested in using data for health-related research to inform and improve outcomes.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Physicians, nurses, allied health, data scientists, data engineers, software engineers, academics and students alike who are passionate about healthcare data, keen to learn and enjoy collaborating with like-mined people.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Be a part of a team to address a real clinical problem, explore methods where analysis of datasets influences clinical practice and/or health policy decisions. Strengthen collaboration across professional groups, build on shared expertise and be mentored by the best in the world.
Participants work in a cross-disciplinary team to address a current health care problem using data analytic technologies. The datasets available may include the ANZICS CORE Adult Patient Database (APD), the Australian and New Zealand Paediatric Registry (ANZPICR) and the Critical Care Resources (CCR) Dataset, the MIMIC Critical Care Dataset and the eICU Collaborative Research Dataset.
Teams are mentored and encouraged to complete their research project beyond attendance at the Datathon. Each team has the opportunity to present their seed research findings toward the close of the event and commendations will be awarded for the most outstanding studies.
