Graduate students in the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics track in the Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) have made it to the “final four” in this year’s AMIA Student Design Challenge, “The Human Side of Big Data.” Students Ashley Choi, Benjamin Cordier, Prerna Das, Ph.D., and Jason Li, M.S., will present on “Take a Breather: Empowering Adherence & Patient Centered Research through Interactive Data Visualization, Social Engagement, & Gamification in Patients with Sleep Apnea.” With input from the MyApnea.org team, and mentorship from their faculty advisor, Dr. Eilis Boudreau, they created an interactive dashboard with the aim of fostering long-term engagement by patients with their health and treatment plan and encouraging user retention. The students will be presenting their project on Tuesday, November 17, 2015, as part of the AMIA 2015 Annual Symposium, to be held in San Francisco, CA.
