The Data Science Group at HVL and Eitri Medical Incubator invites everyone interested in AI for health to participate in a datathon in September 2022.

Eitri Medical Datathon 2022 is an effort by HVL Data Science Group, Eitri Medical Incubator, and UiB Medical School to unleash the potential of data in healthcare.

World leading scientist

The workshop is facilitated by the world leading scientist Dr. Leo Celi from MIT, who is best known for bringing together clinicians and data scientists to collect and analyze data routinely collected during the healthcare process.

– With digitalization of care, there is an opportunity for each country, for each healthcare organization, to build its own medical knowledge system. But no hospital or clinic has all the data science and clinical expertise needed to curate and derive knowledge from the electronic health records, says Dr. Leo Celi. 

Collaboration between medical experts and data scientists

Professor Reza Arghandeh, professor Jerry (Chun-Wei) Lin, and associate professor Ilker Meric from HVL Data Science Group  are among the steering committee for the event.

– Extracting the knowledge encrypted in health data requires a wide range of skills and perspectives especially in data science area. Sharing health data to the research community and walking them through the data with domain experts is a key for developing data-driven solutions. Above all, we hope to facilitate communication and collaboration between medical experts and data scientists in Bergen area,  says professor  Reza Arghandeh.

The aim of the Eitri datathon is to utilize previously admitted patients' data from the emergency room to answer important clinical research questions. 

– An equally important aim is to bring together clinicians, data scientist, engineers, industry, and investors for interdisciplinary collaboration aiming to provide better healthcare in the Bergen Hospital, and to the world, says Director of Eitri, Torleif Markussen Lunde. 

Key stakeholders from Haukeland Hospital, HVL, University of Bergen, Curie and Eureka student organizations, have agreed to participate. Clinicians, students, industry, and professors are invited to participate, nationally and internationally.
