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

April 20, 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 – 4/20/2021

This talk will feature Dr. Sunny Lou, Cardiac Anesthesiology Fellow in the Department of Anesthesiology at Washington University School of Medicine. She completed her MD-PhD at Stanford University on the biophysics of cell migration. Her current research interests are in the use of electronic health record data to improve clinical decision making and workflow. She will be presenting her research on “A Longitudinal Study of Burnout and Clinical Workload Measured with Electronic Health Record Audit Logs.”

Dr. Lou will discuss EHR-associated contributors to physician burnout, which have been explored in the outpatient setting but not for inpatient clinicians, who make up a large fraction of the physician workforce. She and the team conducted a longitudinal observational study of intern physicians working in both inpatient and outpatient contexts and measured the association between burnout and workload measured using EHR audit log data.

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:
