The Institute for Informatics (I2) Research-in-Progress Lecture Series

January 26, 2021, 3:00 pm — 4:00 pm

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, I2 Research-in-Progress Lecture Series has moved to Zoom.

Zoom Meeting Registration: I2 Research-in-Progress Lecture Series – 1/26/2021

This talk will feature Dr. Patrick G. Lyons, Instructor in Medicine in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine within the Department of Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. Lyons is a medical intensivist and healthcare delivery scientist with specific interests in clinical research informatics, risk prediction modeling, communication, and learning health systems. His current research involves (1) creation, evaluation, and implementation of risk prediction models for hospitalized patients with cancer, (2) leveraging health information technology to improve care transitions for high-risk inpatients, and (3) human-centered design of health information technology and inpatient care delivery systems. He will be presenting his research on “Predicting and Mitigating Oncologic Clinical Deterioration Through Data Science and Implementation Science.”

Hospitalized patients with cancer are at high risk for clinical deterioration, including critical illness and death. This talk will explore (1) data-driven strategies to identify high-risk patients reliably and (2) use of novel approaches towards the design and implementation of an end-to-end system for monitoring and intervening upon high-risk patients.


The I2 Research-in-Progress Lecture Series is designed to offer individuals an opportunity to learn about informatics science and practice occurring throughout the Danforth and Medical Campuses. These informal talks are designed to promote interactions and provide individuals with an opportunity to obtain feedback on their research-in-progress. The schedule of this semester is listed below:
