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

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.”
