Courtney L. Hebert, MD, the Department of Biomedical Informatics' first Post Doctoral Fellow on the Clinical and Translational Informatics Training Program (CTRIP), which is funded by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), recently presented at the annual NLM 2013 Conference. Her presentation was entitled, "Administrative vs. Problem List Data for Comorbidity Detection: Re-Use Implications". Here she pauses for a picture with our training program's directors, Drs. Philip Payne (left) and Peter Embi (right).
Dr. Hebert has been with the university since 2011. She is currently pursuing her Master of Science degree with a specialization in Biomedical Informatics. As a part of her fellowship, she is focused on Clinical Research Informatics research. She is currently involved in several research projects that focus on the secondary use of electronic health record (EHR) data for research and quality improvement. Some of her past research has involved creating risk prediction models using EHR data. She used this data to study the effect of epidemiologic context on antimicrobial prescribing, as well as to develop novel ways to represent microbiology suceptibility data to enable decision support. She is a practicing, board-certified Infectious Diseases physician.
