CHIP Represented at DINA 2019
CHIP will be represented at the Data Integration and Applications Workshop (DINA 2019) today in Würzburg, Germany. Abel Kho, MD, CHIP Director, will present on “Privacy-Preserving Record Linkage to Identify Fragmented Electronic Medical Records in the All of Us Research Program,” research conducted in collaboration with Jingzhi Yu, Molly Scannell Bryan, PhD, Charon Gladfelter, MPH, Howard S. Gordon, MD, Shaun Grannis, MD, Margaret Madden, Eneida A Mendonca, MD, PhD, Vesna Mitrovic, Raj C Shah, MD, Umberto Tachinardi, MD, and Bradley Taylor.
The study used de-identified data from the All of Us Research Program to investigate patient care fragmentation across seven participating institutions in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana. The research team found a significantly higher percentage of inconsistent demographic data in patients with fragmented care compared to those without care fragmentation. The team concluded that privacy-preserving record linkage (PPRL) can be an effective way to identify care fragmentation and poor data quality.
DINA 2019 brings together data-focused professionals across a wide range of fields, including research, computer science, business, and governmental organizations. The workshop is being held in conjunction with the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECMLPKDD), a machine learning and data mining conference.
