Title: “Systematically Identifying Patients with Serious Illness: Harnessing EHR Data for Palliative Care Research and Practice”
Bio: Natalie C. Ernecoff, PhD, MPH, is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Section of Palliative Care and Medical Ethics, Division of General Internal Medicine, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Until May 2019, Natalie was a Royster Fellow in Health Policy & Management at the Gillings School of Global Public Health, University of North Carolina. She will present research on how systematic identification of patients with serious illness can allow palliative care researchers and clinicians to test and implement new models of palliative care delivery. Natalie will present on the development of EHR phenotypes–structured algorithms that use EHR data–for patients with late-stage cancer, dementia, and chronic kidney disease. Her methods incorporate structured data and natural language processing to identify cohorts of patients with serious illness. She will present examples of her own projects that applied these methods in palliative care research
