Impact critical care in new ways at the upcoming Datathon! From Duke Critical Care Informatics, the Datathon is a collaborative two-day event that connects critical care clinicians with data scientists to develop pragmatic data-driven models using de-identified critical care electronic health record datasets. The theme is “Data Science in Critical Care.” Current sub-themes for 2024 include Health Equity and Patient Outcomes.

Using de-identified critical care electronic health record datasets (e.g., MIMIC, eICU), we will develop new projects in 36 hours, from problem to abstract (and more)! 

Participants will be organized into teams that are half-data science, half-clinical. You do not need to have a team; we will help you find a team. Questions will be crowdsourced. No experience is required.

  • If you’re a clinician, your interest, but not expertise, in data science is required. 
  • If you’re a data scientist, your interest, but not expertise, in healthcare and critical care is required. 

Registration open to academic institutions on 15 January 2024.  Registration rates will increase in Feb 2024.
