School of Public Health Research Seminar Series
Impacting patient care, cost and efficiency with innovative application of statistical methods
Jay Mandrekar, PhD
Research in academic medical centers offer opportunities to collaborate on clinical projects that require novel application of both common and uncommon statistical methods. The focus of this presentation is to provide illustrative examples from clinical areas like neurology and radiology. Specifically, statistical approaches including; 1) development, prediction and validation of a simple risk score for prediction of death for organ donation, 2) Graeco Latin Square design to compare the performance of four liquid crystal displays under typical medical center lighting conditions, 3) use of factor analysis in the development of an abbreviated questionnaire for the assessments of autonomic symptom profile will be discussed. Findings from these studies have had a direct impact on patient care, cost savings and efficiency.
Pizza and beverages will be provided.
