UCONN Computer Science and Engineering Team Prototypes New Clinical Inference User Interface
Identifies missing patient information for clinical users
A team of UCONN computer science and engineering students designed and implemented a new user interface to identify missing patient information for clinical users. The user interface was demonstrated at UCONN’s Senior Design Presentation Day on May 3rd at UCONN’s Gampel Pavillion in Storrs, Connecticut. Presentation Day is the culmination of a two-semester course required of all School of Engineering seniors to graduate. Over two hundred student teams participated.
Diameter Health’s design team included Mattia Schiano, Mingwei Zhang, Sophia Russell, Susmitha Rayakota, under the direction of faculty advisor Dr. Donald Sheehy. Diameter Health’s sponsor advisors were Harvard Pan, CTO and Priyaranjan Tokachichu, MD, MS, Product Manager and Senior Medical Informaticist.
The goal of the project was to design and implement a user interface to display medical associations calculated using Diameter Health algorithms and enable users to interact with the data through the selection of attributes, as well as filtering, sorting and searching the data. Users also have the option of confirming or rejecting identified relationships to provide feedback to the algorithm underlying the technology. To see the team’s project video, click here.
“The student team did a great job quickly grasping our business and then designing a simple, but powerful user interface to visualize the data associations in useful ways,” said Harvard Pan, Diameter Health’s Chief Technology Officer. “In addition, the team devised an intuitive method to enable clinical experts to provide feedback on associations driving the model.”
Diameter Health expects to incorporate the team’s findings and recommendations into the company’s clinical data platform in upcoming releases.
