The Emergency Medicine Informatics Research Lab at BIDMC is a translational informatics lab that specializes in the rapid translation of novel technologies into clinical practice.

We have custom built an Emergency Department Information System to serve as a live-clinical testbed that allows us to rapidly iterate the Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle. Our lab has particular expertise in machine learning, user interface design, clinical informatics, and research methodology.

Our research lab engages in:

  • Innovative clinical application development
  • Translation of state-of-the-art computer science into clinical practice
  • Methodologically rigorous evaluation of Health IT interventions
  • Post-doctoral fellowship training program

Our interests include:

  • Application of machine learning to the clinical domain
  • Clinical decision support
  • Contextual information retrieval
  • Human-computer interface
  • Ubiquitous computing
