IR Meets EHR: Retrieving Patient Cohorts for Clinical Research Studies
The growing amount of patient data in electronic health record (EHR) systems provides opportunity for clinical research and other tasks. This talk describes efforts applying techniques of information retrieval (IR) to identify patients who might be candidates for clinical research studies. It also discusses challenges for this sort of task, namely the challenges for using data generated for documenting patient care as well as maintaining its privacy.

Short bio: William Hersh is Professor and Chair of the Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology in the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon, USA.
