DAY #2: Developing and Documenting an Agenda for Use-Inspired Fundamental Research
The workshop participants will collectively co-author an initial version of a research agenda for software engineering in healthcare, to be refined in the days and weeks following SEHC 2011, for publication in an appropriate venue. The selected keynote speaker will kick off this process by presenting his own well-grounded vision of a broad range of research issues for our field in this domain.
8:30 - 10:00 Keynote Engineering Healthcare CyberInfrastructures, Ingolf Krueger, University of California, San Diego
Abstract: Our ability to rapidly obtain, correlate, mine and create new data from various traditional and non-traditional sources, and to make derived information available to patients, practitioners and researchers under stringent observance of policy constraints has become a key driver for quality healthcare. Converting and integrating scattered health records into an electronic medical record (EMR) via health information exchanges (HIEs) is one of many important steps towards realizing this goal. Others range from integration of wireless devices into novel health monitoring, alerting, and intervention workflows that empower patients, healthcare providers and researchers alike, to utilization of cloud-based networking, computation and storage resources.
This talk will outline central Software Engineering challenges in developing CyberInfrastructures for healthcare. From critical requirements for scalability, fault-tolerance and information assurance we will derive a policy-enabled architecture blueprint for rapidly building integrated healthcare solutions, and show how this blueprint maps to traditional and cloud-based deployment architectures. We demonstrate viability of the blueprint and deployment via three case studies: the Physical Activity Level Monitoring System (PALMS), the Cyberinfrastructure for Comparative Effectiveness Research (CyCore) and CitiSense - Adaptive Services for Community-Driven Behavioral and Environmental Monitoring to Induce Change.
