          About This Event

          Summary

          Generating Practice-based Evidence from Electronic Health Records

          Abstract: In the era of EHRs, it is possible to examine the outcomes of decisions made by doctors during clinical practice to identify patterns of care that are optimal—generating evidence based on the collective practice of experts. We will discuss informatics methods that transform unstructured patient notes into a de-identified, temporally ordered, patient-feature matrix.  With the resulting high-throughput data, it is possible to monitor for adverse drug events, profile specific drugs, identify off-label drug usage, uncover ‘natural experiments’ and generate practice-based evidence for difficult-to-test clinical hypotheses. We will review four use-cases to illustrate the usefulness of learning practice-based evidence from unstructured clinical notes. 

          By examining the frequency and co-frequency of drug and disease mentions, we can detect associations among drugs and their adverse events about 2 years before an alert is issued as well as learn the prevalence of known drug-drug interactions. Using the patient feature matrix as well as prior knowledge about drugs, diseases, and known usage, we identify novel off-label uses; ranked on the basis of drug safety and cost. We uncover a natural experiment—a subset of CHF patients who were prescribed Cilostazol despite its black box warning—and profile its safety in this high-risk group of patients. We will discuss a use case of testing a clinical hypothesis about a possible association between allergic conditions and the complication of chronic uveitis in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) patients.

          Bio: Dr. Nigam Shah is assistant professor of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics) at Stanford University, where he Assistant Director of the Center for Biomedical Informatics Research, a member of the Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program and a core member of the National Center for Biomedical Ontology. His group develops methods to annotate, index and analyze large unstructured datasets for enabling use cases of the learning health system. His research has demonstrated that by using unstructured clinical data it is possible to monitor for adverse drug events, learn drug-drug interactions, identify off-label drug usage, find practice-based evidence for difficult-to-test clinical hypotheses, and generate phenotypic fingerprints of diseases.

          Dr. Shah received the AMIA New Investigator Award for 2013. Dr. Shah integrates teaching into his advanced research work and was recognized with the Biosciences Faculty Teaching Award for outstanding teaching contributions in his graduate class on “Data driven medicine” (Biomedin 215). He holds an MBBS from Baroda Medical College, India, a PhD from Penn State University and completed postdoctoral training at Stanford University.
