This talk, given to the executive committee of the Boonsoft School of Medicines summarizes/introduces some of the projects on clinical and healthcare applications, and health informatics including consumer health behavior and social media use in healthcare. I focus on personalized digital health, handling/mining of healthcare big data, high-level description of innovations and especially applications involving clinical partners that empower patients, support better clinical decision making, reduce clinician's information overload, or improve clinical outcomes. [Because some of the evaluations are undergoing now, some of these benefits are yet to be quantitatively and qualitatively assessed.] 2 min. video on a Personalized Digital Health application (Asthma control in Children): Also see: for related information.

  • Asthma is a multifactorial disease with health signals spanning personal, public health, and population levels. 16 Real-time health signals from personal level (e.g., Wheezometer, NO in breath, accelerometer, microphone), public health (e.g., CDC, Hospital EMR), and population level (e.g., pollen level, CO2) arriving continuously in fine grained samples potentially with missing information and uneven sampling frequencies. Variety Volume VeracityVelocity Value Can we detect the asthma severity level? Can we characterize asthma control level? What risk factors influence asthma control? What is the contribution of each risk factor?semantics Understanding relationships between health signals and asthma attacks for providing actionable information WHY Big Data to Smart Data?
