Clinicians and data scientists collaborate to address real-world problems using existing datasets.
The Society of Critical Care Medicine's (SCCM) Datathon is a collaborative event connecting clinicians with data scientists to develop pragmatic data-driven models applicable to the care of critically ill patients using de-identified critical care electronic health record datasets.
The Datathon demonstrates the multiprofessional approach required to successfully analyze large datasets. It combines medical science and data science techniques to address real-world problems using existing datasets.
The Datathon is part of Discovery, the Critical Care Research Network, and is designed to synthesize critical problem solving and data analytics, promote multiprofessional collaboration, and increase data science knowledge and innovation. The goal is to identify projects that have the potential to lead to publication and improve the care of critically ill patients.
Critical care clinicians, researchers, and data scientists are encouraged to participate. Clinicians do not need to have existing data science knowledge. Information on the 2024 event will be available soon.
