Updates on CHiP Core and Associated Faculty:
Dr. Saif Khairat has recently published an article in JMIR Publications titled ‘Reasons For Physicians Not Adopting Clinical Decision Support Systems: Critical Analysis'. The purpose was to conduct a review of the literature in order to evaluate our hypothesis that meaningful engagement of physicians in the design and development of CDSSs with transparent decision-making processes will result in higher acceptance rates. He also has another paper published in Studies in Health Technology and Informatics as well.
Dr. Lukasz Mazur has been published in Advances in Radiation Oncology titled ‘Promoting Safety Mindfulness: recommendations for the Design and Use of Simulation-Based Training in Radiation Therapy. He has also recently received an AHRQ grant dedicated to research towards this topic as well.
Dr. David Gotz is co-author on the paper ‘ECGLens: Interactive Visual Exploration of Large-Scale ECG Data for Arrhythmia Detection’ that also won an Honorable Mention Award at ACM CHI 2018. He was also invited to a talk on ‘Visual Analytics for Healthcare’ at UNC Charlotte.
