New posts and comments will not be accepted.
Information Technology at UCSF selected 5 proposals for funding. The winning teams had seven weeks to work on the projects. An awards ceremony took place on October 12, 2012 as part of the IT@UCSF Sharecase conference at Mission Bay campus.
Description of Project –
Attention is a fundamental component process of virtually all aspects of human cognition. The ability to manage the barrage of sensory inputs that we encounter in the world is what allows us to engage in complex, goal-directed behavior. Deficits in attentional control are a core aspect of almost all neurological disorders and are increasingly prevalent in patients suffering from traumatic brain injury.
We propose the production of a few high quality videos of high-volume procedures in the area of plastic and reconstructive surgery. We plan to use three GoPro HD Hero2 Professional (www.gopro.com) with the included head straps for recording 5 surgical procedures from three different points of views, the primary surgeon, assisting surgeon, and medical student. The videos will then be edited and dialogue added to walk the viewer through these procedures.
Description of the project: The timely initiation of appropriate antibiotics is critical both for individual patient outcomes and institutional goals of reducing antibiotic resistance, shortening hospital stays, and complying with pneumonia and sepsis core measures. However, the correct antibiotic choice for the same indication varies depending on local resistance patterns and hospital formularies, making it challenging to identify the ideal antibiotic in a given circumstance.
Develop a Facebook-like program for UCSF staff, faculty, researchers, post docs, students & affiliates where the site is searchable and displays photos of everyone and their specialties where liniks to their project sites is feasible. A chat and IM feature could be integrated.
Posted ALL UCSF community with photos (uploardable), links to expertise, research and projects/grants, searchable and queries for specialties and groups. Chat and IM features as well as email and comments on their walls.
Reboot Cardiac Arrest: A UCSF Community CPR Registry Website
One of the earliest critical links in the “Chain of Survival” for victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is rapid initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by bystanders.
Description of project
Localizing a neurological lesion requires an understanding of the human nervous system and complex crisscrossing paths. It is a difficult skill for UCSF medical students and residents to master, and even for non-neurologist attending physicians to maintain, especially for who do not use the skill regularly. However, we believe that some of the complex thought process behind localizing a neurological exam can be captured and executed by a handheld application that can aid both students learning the skill and clinicians providing patient care.
Project Title: Mobile Platform for Electronic Capture of Patient Reported Information, The UCSF Athena Breast Health Network
We propose to develop a robust mobile platform for electronic capture of patient reported health history information as a catalyst to improve, accelerate and personalize clinical care and research. The prototype will be developed for the intake of breast health history information but designed to allow easy interoperability, “plug and play”.
Description of Project: It is estimated that there are more than 30,000 deaths related to accidental poisonings each year. While there are databases of prescription drugs, there have been no robust efforts to automate the identification of medications in clinical practice. We seek to implement and test a mobile application that uses image processing to identify medications.
ImageFlow – A Medical Imaging Data Portal
Medical Imaging data plays an important role in translational research projects across many departments and disciplines. However, there are numerous barriers to accessing this data in a form that is convenient for researchers, imposes minimal impact on clinical systems, and complies with various institutional and legal requirements.
UCSF Open Proposals is managed by the UCSF Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), part of the Clinical and Translational Science Award program funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (Grant Number UL1 TR000004) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
