A project designed to use iPads to help children who are deaf or hard of hearing improve their language skills was recently featured in a news report on local station WKRC Cincinnati 12. A research IT team in the Division of Biomedical Informatics supports the technology used in this important study.
The International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) has named two papers by Yizhao Ni, PhD, and his colleagues as among the five best natural language processing (NLP) papers of 2015. Both papers are featured in the IMIA Yearbook of Medical Informatics 2016, and have received other accolades as well.
Three new faculty members recently joined the biomedical informatics team at the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s: Kevin Dufendach, MD, Emily Miraldi, PhD, and Danny T. Y. Wu, PhD.
Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s have created a software application and clinical system called NINJA that taps into the power of electronic medical records to protect hospitalized children from a potentially serious safety threat – acute kidney injury (AKI).
