Title: Precision Medicine at Georgia Tech: Introduction to the Health Data Analytics Platform
Abstract: Conducting health research is complex, from accessing health data to running analytics to building interoperable applications. The Georgia Tech Health Data Analytics Platform (HDAP) is designed to expedite the process of health research through 1) accessible datasets, 2) analytics tools, and 3) interoperable FHIR APIs and and a FHIR application deployment environment. In this presentation, we will discuss precision medicine research, the use of natural language processing, and the HDAP platform.
