BASH Through the Barriers: Moderating the Clinical Research and Computational Divide

Free text. Incomplete data. Neurosurgery. Acronyms. Databases. Inaccurate data. Physician interpretations. Dual located data. Is it possible to create an architecture that fits these items together resourcefully? Can clinicians and computationalists harmonize? At the Brain Injury Research Lab, we are BASHing through these barriers. The Brain Injury Assessment Study at Hennepin County Medical Center (BASH) aims to develop a multimodal assessment of brain injury. Using BASH as a technical case study, attendees will learn about three main challenges faced in clinical research, namely, how data collection in medical research is not “controlled”, problems faced when storing and managing protected health information, and incorporating the valuable knowledgebase but differential skill level of study personnel in data processing and analysis. How BASH tackled these challenges (or plans to) will be explained. Lastly, the talk will describe futuristic solutions to the challenges of clinical research using alternative architectures that maintain discipline-specific components.
