From Big Data to Big Mind: Building Data-Driven Frameworks to Solve Complex Diseases
The main theme of our research is large-scale analysis of disease genomes by integrating multi-omics data, evolutionary insights, electronic health records, as well as digitized clinical traits from imaging and wearable sensor readouts. The ultimate goal is to build data-driven frameworks to detect diseases before symptoms emerge and to achieve precision health management.

Understand use of CLIIR to improve quality and value of healthcare
Audit-log data captures moment to moment clinical care processes within EHR. It makes these labor-intensive approaches obsolete, providing more comprehensive data faster with more accuracy. Taking this audit-log data and combining it with clinical data enables us to research the impact of provider workflows, behaviors and interactions with the EHR on patient outcomes.
Romain Pirrachio, MD, PhD
Applied biostatistical research, machine Learning and predictive analytics in critical care
Dr. Pirracchio focuses on three clinical research areas including evaluation and optimization of daily cares in the intensive care unit. He is also broadly interested in problems of causal inference and prediction, particularly developing novel methodologies for addressing scientific questions using complex observational data subject to sampling biases.
