Research at Mass General
The MGH & BWH Center for Clinical Data Science is a collaboration by Mass General and Brigham and Women's Hospital to create, promote and commercialize artificial intelligence for healthcare. By using AI techniques such as machine learning and artificial neural networks, the center is building systems to improve the detection, diagnosis, treatment and management of diseases.
The CCDS works with clinicians, researchers and industry to co-develop and validate algorithms that can recognize patterns of disease and advance diagnostic capabilities. Its corps of data scientists, developers, and fellows train and test models with the potential for commercialization. It focuses on the pipeline of translation – from model conceptualization to clinical validation in the Partners Healthcare System.
The CCDS works on a wide variety of projects, including: 1) projects that address a clearly articulated medical problem or clinical workflow pain point and have the support of a "champion" (in clinical medicine or elsewhere with the healthcare enterprise) that could be addressed using machine learning; and 2) novel transformative ideas that could benefit the medical and/or data science fields by leveraging CCDS data and resources. Many initial projects are focused on elements of diagnostic medicine, including radiologic images.
