is a design sprint-like event in which you, as a member of a team, will collaborate intensively with your team mates to answer a clinical question using large clinical care datasets. Our goal is to host a fun, creative and innovative event that brings together experts and novices, clinicians and data scientists, to learn more about data and discover new knowledge in an interdisciplinary atmosphere.
Clinicians, data scientists, biostatisticians, engineers, mathematicians, students, and all those interested in data analysis in healthcare, especially in critical care.
The Datathon will be coordinated by a team composed of researchers from the University Hospital of Tarragona Joan XXIII (HJ23) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) critical data. It will be conducted in a fun and challenging way for the groups.
We will provide access to Wi-Fi, data sets and free lunch and coffee. You must bring your own hardware (a laptop with Wi-Fi connection will be enough) and your data mining and lateral thinking skills.
The list of questions (challenges) will be available before the Datathon start, as well as tutorials to access to the data. Participants will be able to enroll the challenge they like the most, but some can be relocated to ensure that groups are skills balanced
The Datathon officially starts on Saturday the 12th, but there will be an introductory session on Friday the 11th to ensure that participants can access the data. The last day (Sunday the 13th) ends with each team presenting their work to the mentors, who will reward the most outstanding solutions..
For this edition, 2 different ICU datasets will be available. From the US, the well-known MIMIC dataset will be available. From the EU, the ICUsICS (from Catalonia) will be available for the first time. Teams may choose to use one or more of these datasets to answer their clinical questions.
All participants must complete a "Non-Disclosure Agreement" and comply with the access and privacy policies of the different databases.
During the data marathon, teams will have access to de-identified datasets. Teams can choose to use one or all of these datasets to answer their clinical questions.
All attendees will be able to access the repositories through AWS cloud platforms
