The Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences, in collaboration with Venture Café, is hosting Precision Medicine and Biomedical Informatics series! This Thursday, Dr. Thomas Maddox and Dr. Philip Payne, will present how to mine the huge amount of information from electronic medical records towards the development of a “learning healthcare system.”

Dr. Thomas Maddox is Professor of Medicine in the John T. Milliken Department of Internal Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine. He maintains an active inpatient practice in consultative cardiology. Dr. Maddox is the inaugural Director of the Health Systems Innovation Laboratory (HSIL), a partnership between BJC HealthCare and Washington University School of Medicine. HSIL develops innovative ways to deliver care and improve the health of individuals and communities.

Dr. Philip Payne is the Robert J. Terry Professor and founding Director of the Institute for Informatics (I2) at Washington University in St. Louis. He also holds appointments as a Professor of General Medical Sciences and Computer Science and Engineering. Dr. Payne is an internationally recognized leader in the field of Translational Bioinformatics (TBI) and Clinical Research Informatics (CRI). His current research focuses on novel tools and methods for the collection, sharing, and integration of data in support of clinical and translational research; the use of knowledge-based systems to speed hypothesis generation and testing in support of bio-marker and therapeutic target discovery; and the instrumentation of electronic health records to create learning healthcare systems.
