Distinguished Research Seminar in Data Science: William Feaster '76

Goergen Institute for Data Science welcomes distinguished speaker Dr. William W. Feaster, MD '76

Title: Implementing a Cloud Computing Solution for Data Science and Advanced Analytics in Healthcare

Abstract: Today, more and more patients present the healthcare provider with an increasingly overwhelming volume of data from sources like genomics, wearables, monitors, images, notes, etc.  Our challenge is to transform those data into valuable information, aiding not overwhelming the practitioner providing care.  Meeting this challenge requires clinicians and data scientists skilled in analyzing the scope of available medical data, a database platform in which these disparate data are easily accessible, and a computational environment that can scale to meet the needs of available machine learning algorithms.  This presentation will describe how we are meeting these challenges at CHOC Children’s Hospital in Orange, California, through a partnership with our Electronic Health Record (EHR) vendor, Amazon Web Services and our internal data science resources.  In addition to describing work published and currently in progress, this presentation will describe how predictive analytic tools, once developed, can be implemented back into the EHR to inform caregivers and improve care.

Bio:  Dr. William W. (Bill) Feaster, MD '76 is the Chief Health Information Officer at CHOC Children’s in Orange, CA. He received medical degree from the University Of Rochester School Of Medicine and an MBA from Saint Mary's College of California.
