The Value of Variety: Methods, strategies and architectures to deal with the most intriguing “V” of biomedical big data

Speaker Riccardo Bellazzi, Professor of Bioengineering and Biomedical Informatics, University of Pavia, Italy

Biomedical research and clinical practice have become in the last 20 years “data intensive” fields, thus giving Biomedical informatics a progressively central role. A key aspect of biomedical data is represented by their “variety”, i.e. the diversity of data types available that requires different knowledge and approaches to manage and interpret them. Being able to take advantage of variety can be a crucial enabling factor for translational and clinical research, as well as for a more effective care of patients. The talk will report some recent research efforts to deal with variety and discuss some experiences carried on at the University of Pavia, Italy, ranging from the definition of IT architectures and infrastructures to the design and implementation of novel data analytics algorithms, oriented to data integration and fusion.

Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO) Sponsored Focus Group: A trusted platform for innovation in clinical research and life science

Exchange 7

In this focus group, IMO clinicians and informaticists will engage participants in discussion of the value of deriving structured data from unstructured content, and ways in which structured data can be used during acute care to drive clinical and financial decision making. We will look at ways in which the new IMO 2.0 Enhanced Terminology Platform (ETP) can be used as a trusted platform for developing innovations in clinical care, research and life sciences. Use cases will illustrate how coding clinical data with IMO allows users to group data by multiple reference and reimbursement code sets, “colorizing” the data to enable secondary use in analytics and other big data applications. We will show how IMO-enabled natural language processing (NLP) allows harvesting the wealth of information in free text by automatically capturing and preserving clinical intent via the IMO code while mapping to reference and reimbursement codes. Such data can be used to create intelligent problem lists that can be more readily curated and reconciled to produce high-value longitudinal data on each patient for population management applications. Other population health use cases will demonstrate how groupers can be used to streamline clinical workflow and facilitate risk stratification. We will also demonstrate use cases for revenue cycle management reporting for SNOMED, diagnosis-related groups (DRGs), and ICD-10, and discuss the importance of timely updates and the need for the synchronization between grouper content using the rules and dictionary content in the your EHR. We will show how the new Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) standard, coupled with terminology solutions, can play a role in implementing and maintaining grouper solutions usable within clinical and non-clinical workflows.

Exchange Auditorium:

Keynote Plenary: Machine learning meets behavioural science: The Human Behaviour-Change Project

Susan Michie, Professor of Health Psychology, University College London, UK

Behaviour change is essential if major health problems such as obesity and cancer are to be tackled. Evidence is needed by researchers, policy-makers and practitioners about intervention effectiveness across contexts, and about mechanisms of action. Such evidence is currently produced on a vast but fragmented scale and more rapidly than humans can synthesise and access.

Computers have the capacity and speed to do this task but cannot access unstructured information in reports directly. Progress in this area requires a collaboration between computer and behavioural scientists to develop a knowledge structure (‘ontology’) and apply it to the evidence, and requires information science to support the curation and access of evidence.

The Human Behaviour Change Project brings together behavioural, computer and information scientists to build an Artificial Intelligence system to continually scan the world literature on behaviour change, extract key information and use this to build and update the scientific understanding of human behaviour to answer variants of the ‘big question’:
‘What works, compared with what, how well, for whom, in what settings,
for what behaviours, for how long and why?’

The project involves an iterative process including:
Develop an ontology (structure for organising knowledge) of features of behaviour change intervention evaluations using a consensus process with international experts.
Annotate published literature using the ontology.
Build an automated feature extraction system.
Build a Machine Learning and Reasoning system to synthesise evidence.
Develop an interactive user interface to interrogate and update the knowledge system created.

The project builds on taxonomies of behaviour change already developed, and existing ontologies (e.g. the Cochrane PICO ontology) and feature extraction systems (e.g. EPPI-Reviewer). It will focus initially on the use-case of smoking cessation but the project team will make available resources, products and findings throughout the life of the project to encourage collaboration.

Keynote Plenary: How Linked (and even Open) Data can benefit Healthcare systems
Frank van Harmelen, Professor of Knowledge Representation & Reasoning, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands

A steady progress in semantic technologies over the past decade and a half has resulted in stable syntactic and semantic models for publishing and interlinking datasets on the web. Such interlinked and interoperable datasets have had a significant impact on a large number of technology sectors: e-commerce, cultural heritage, science, media and publishing, just to name a few.
However, the impact of linked data on healthcare information systems has been limited so far in comparison with these other sectors. In this talk I will argue that Linked Data technologies can also be very useful for a variety of applications in healthcare information systems, and that this is even true (perhaps surprisingly) for Linked *Open* Data.

Keynote Plenary: Crossing the river by feeling the stones.

Sally Okun, Vice President for Advocacy, Policy and Patient Safety, PatientsLikeMe

The journey of illness brings many uncertainties, unexpected events, raw emotions and endless questions. Often we find ourselves moving from one experience to the next in unfamiliar environments surrounded by strangers using their specialized language, inherited cultural norms and standardised approaches to our care and treatment. While the journey is uniquely our own, we have much to learn from those who have been on this path before us. Deng Xiaoping’s quote, ‘crossing the river by feeling the stones’, aptly describes the potential of digitized health informatics to harness the power of our collective knowledge and experiences to build a continuously learning health network that enables our personalised journeys towards health and thriving.
