Colloquium IS (June 1, 2018) – EHR-data driven clinical risk prediction for CVD

Dear all,

We are pleased to invite you to our next Colloquium IS that will take place on Friday,

June 1, 2018, 16:00 – 17:00 (Paviljoen K.16).

Speaker: Zhengxing Huang from Zhejiang University

Title: EHR-data driven clinical risk prediction for CVD


With the rapid development of hospital information systems, a large volume of electronic health records (EHRs) has been produced, which provides a comprehensive source for clinical risk prediction. In this talk, I am concerned with the problem of utilizing the heterogeneous EHR data to assist clinical risk prediction for cardiovascular disease patients.  Specifically, two challenges are addressed in this study: 1) how to annotate unstructured EHR data for generating a benchmark dataset, and 2) how to train a predictive model on the benchmark patient samples which are typically imbalanced and correlated to each other.
