I am a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology with a BS in biomedical engineering. I currently work at Georgia Tech Research Institute in the Health Emerging and Advanced Technologies division (HEAT-D) as a Health Data Analytics and Informatics Researcher as well as being a Contractor for the Centers for Disease Control.
Observational health research is a domain of health informatics centered around the use of what is known as "Real World Data". This data comes in several different modalities, standards, and levels of quality. Through efforts done in JuliaHealth, JuliaInterop, and associated communities, the ability to work with this data is now fully realized. Through this talk, viewers will see how an observational health study can be conducted with Julia and how similar tools can be adapted to their research.
