The 2016 CIHDS workshop will focus on the linkages between precision medicine and precision health, and especially how healthcare delivery can become more efficient as the driver of innovation.

The workshop will begin with a panel of investigators and thought leaders in this area:

·      Chris DeFlitch, Emergency Medicine, CMIO

·      Harriet Nembhard, Industrial Engineering

·      Harleah Buck, College of Nursing

·      Marc Williams, Geisinger Genomic Medicine Institute

·      James Broach, Instiute for Personalized Medicine

We invite our colleagues to send 300-word abstracts that may address any of the following topics as they relate to the workshop theme:

·      human genome

·      disease discovery

·      device creation and use

·      clinical decision support

·      big data/analytics

·      cost effectiveness analysis

·      ethics

·      business development

·      clinical decision support

·      laboratory discovery

·      privacy/security

·      culture of health

·      home care

·      payment models

Given the new and developing work in this area, participants are not expected to have completed projects. We use the term “abstract” broadly to include any construction of your ideas, interests, literature review, project plans, and so forth. As in previous workshops, we will organize the day to capitalize on our combined knowledge and develop a way forward on collaborative research and education plans.

Please provide your abstract submission along with position and contact details to CIHDS@psu.edu by December 14, 2015.
