BIHE Monthly Seminar – Exploring Social Media to Understand Mental Health
Date / Time
February 23, 2022
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
One of the great challenges in providing health care for all is health equity. Our health systems, payment models and health care access are built upon historical inequalities that led to disparities in access, diagnosis, treatment and outcomes. The field of biomedical and health informatics works to improve the collection, use and research into biomedical data. With the current nationwide deployment of Health IT, the ability to analyze data, and predict and improve disease outcomes has grown exponentially. However, far too many commercial and government policies, and research approaches perpetuate our current structural health inequities into the algorithms for AI/ML-approaches in digital health. The Biomedical Informatics and Health Equity Monthly Seminar Series will highlight the multi-faceted nature of these challenges and bring faculty, staff and trainees together to learn about current research and spark new collaborations to address health disparities.
