Applying AI to EHR Data

Course

With the transition to electronic health records (EHR) over the last decade, the amount of EHR data has increased exponentially, providing an incredible opportunity to unlock this data with AI to benefit the healthcare system. Learn the fundamental skills of working with EHR data in order to build and evaluate compliant, interpretable machine learning models that account for bias and uncertainty using cutting-edge libraries and tools including Tensorflow Probability, Aequitas, and Shapley. Understand the implications of key data privacy and security standards in healthcare. Apply industry code sets, transform datasets at different EHR data levels, and use Tensorflow to engineer features.
