Every year, March comes in like a lion. For CLE, that could translate into a spring blizzard or early bulbs. It’s anyone’s guess. One thing’s for sure, though–AMIA’s Informatics Summit has a say before March leaves us like a lamb. Like clockwork, the 2019 AMIA Informatics Summit, formerly the Joints Summits on Translational Science, was […]
Moving institutions can be stressful, but it also has its rewards. One real reward is the potential for new and meaningful collaborations. In moving to Case Western Reserve University, I have had the fortune of meeting Drs. John Sedor and John O’Toole. I met the two soon after I joined the faculty of the new […]
Sarah A. Pendergrass and Dana C. Crawford Electronic health records contain patient-level data collected during and for clinical care. Data within the electronic health record include diagnostic billing codes, procedure codes, vital signs, laboratory test results, clinical imaging, and physician notes. With repeated clinic visits, these data are longitudinal, providing important information on disease development, […]
2018 Total Exposure Health
Dr. Dana Crawford presented "Covering All the Bases: A Primer on Today's Sequencing Technologies and Their Applications in Precision Medicine Research" at the 2018 Total Exposure Health conference in Bethesda, MD.
What can I say–this end-of-the-year update is extremely late. I mean, it’s February and 2019 is well underway. I blame it on the polar vortex. Actually, this was supposed to be a 2018 summer update, so it is not fair to blame the CLE winter for my tardiness. Ah, summer (Figure 1). Where did you […]
Restrepo NA, Laper S, Farber-Eger E, Crawford DC. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in developed countries. Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), the most prevalent clinical subtype of glaucoma in the United States, affects African Americans at a higher rate compared with European Americans. Risk factors identified for POAG include increased age and family history, […]
Goodloe R, Farber-Eger E, Boston J, Crawford DC, Bush WS,. Body mass index (BMI) is an important outcome and covariate adjustment for many clinical association studies. Accurate assessment of BMI, therefore, is a critical part of many study designs. Electronic health records (EHRs) are a growing source of clinical data for research purposes, and have […]
2017 AMIA Joint Summits on Translational Science meeting
Dr. Dana Crawford presented both "Reducing clinical noise for body mass index measures due to unit and transcription errors in the electronic health record" and "Extracting country-of-origin from electronic health records for gene-environment studies as part of the Epidemiologic Architecture for Genes Linked to Environment (EAGLE)" at the 2017 AMIA Joint Summits on Translational Science meeting San Francisco, CA.
