    Abstract: Electronic medical record (EMR) data is encoded in patient charts through the course of clinical care and subsequent patient billing. Coded data in the electronic records (such as information stored as ICD/CPT/LOINC/RxNorm codes) provide vast amounts of valuable patient data. However, effectively applying data science tools to EMR data requires understanding dataset limitations and

    Introduction The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed over 220,000 lives in the United States. A promising resource for discovery in COVID-19’s symptom progress is data documented in electronic health record (EHR) systems as part of clinical care. Such data are stored in disparate locations within the EHR, requiring multiple extraction methods. Methods Symptoms were extracted from EHR data for all

  • According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., with over 1.4 million suicide attempts recorded in 2018. Although effective treatments are available for those at risk, clinicians do not have a reliable way of predicting which patients are likely to make a suicide attempt. Researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina
