Building Health Data Services for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Research Impact
Abstract: As interest in data science applications in health has grown, so has demand for findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) real-world health data for research. To meet this demand, academic health center information technology (IT) and informatics organizations are tasked with finding new and novel approaches to delivering research data services. In this talk, I will share a conceptual framework that we are applying to research data service operations at the University of Florida (UF) Health. The framework derives from operations management approaches to successfully breaking the tradeoff between efficiency and service in the face of customer-introduced variability. I will discuss our ongoing local efforts to effectively serve trainees and research teams that have a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds, data science skills, and application domain interests.
