OBSERVER: Reimagining Clinical Data Collection and Decision Support

Faculty: Kevin Johnson and Eric Eaton

Opportunity: Create a repository of multi-modal recorded patient encounters, while ensuring multi-level privacy and deidentification, to enable:


  • Real-time clinical decision support tools
  • Beyond-speech transcription
  • Research on ML, vision, NLP, data science
  • Exploring complex scientific questions about patient-provider-EHR interactions
  • Education of providers from recordings
  • Quality assurance (impaired provider, limited English patient support)
