Title: Utilizing Electronic Heath Records to Support Risk Prediction of Cardiovascular Diseases

Abstract: The presentation will introduce the recent research in Zhejiang University of China on Risk Assessment of Cardiovascular Diseases based on data mining techniques. The research are based on 15000 patient records collected from the hospital. The features are retrieved through Medical NLP techniques, the different risk prediction models have been used on the data, and the results have been evaluated and compared to the GRACE model which has been used in clinical practice now.

About the speaker:

Xudong Lu is a professor of medical informatics at BMI lab of Zhejiang University in China, and a visiting research professor at Technical University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands this week. Before his employment in ZJU, he has the industrial experience of working at Nihon Kohden Corporation in Japan (a well-known corporation on its physiology examination devices and information systems) from 2002-2003. His research focuses are on electronic medical record and clinical decision support. He is the project leader of the National “863” project of “Research on High-end EMR-S and its pilot implementations” initiated since 2011. Besides, he has also involved in several national projects on clinical decision support system.

New employee: Jason Rhuggenaath

foto TUe v3_smallMy name is Jason and I will be joining the Information Systems group in September. I grew up in Curaçao and when I was 18 years old I left Curaçao to go study in Rotterdam. In 2012 I obtained my Bachelor’s diploma in Economics and in the following years I also obtained Master’s degrees in Economics (2014) and Econometrics and Management Science (2015). For the last two years I worked at CPB Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis as an academic researcher.

The PhD project which I will be working on will aim to develop a decision-support tool for revenue optimization for online companies who provide content or physical goods by combining state-of-the-art techniques from the world of big data and from the world of optimization. Furthermore, the project will involve both the OPAC and IS groups. I am looking forward to getting to know and collaborating with the rest of both groups!

New employee: Rick Gilsing

RickI was born in Roermond, a relatively small though cosy city in the south of the Netherlands, and grew up in Horn, a small village nearby. I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree whilst studying in Eindhoven at the Technical University: I completed my Bachelor in Industrial Engineering in 2013, whereas I recently have completed my Master in Innovation Management in May of 2016. My main interests are related to business processes, models and strategy and decision making, whereas I’m also interested in how innovations can change and improve these elements. Not surprisingly, both degrees have already presented me with a good basis on these elements, allowing me to continue to explore these interests.

I will participate within the Information Systems department as part of a PhD project, which will be aimed at developing a method or tool to determine the feasibility of business models for companies which operate in a service-based environment. I hope to present a valuable contribution during my time as a PhD student, but also to learn more and further develop myself during this project, as well as to engage in new collaborations and cooperations!
