New book on participatory modeling

A new book on participatory enterprise modeling (EM) will come out later this summer.

This book is intended for anybody who wants to learn more about how to facilitate participatory modeling in practice and how to set up and carry out enterprise modeling projects. It does not require any in-depth knowledge about specific EM methods and tools, and can be used by students and lecturers for courses on participatory modeling, and by practitioners wanting to extend their knowledge of social and organizational topics to become an experienced facilitator and EM project manager.

Job: PhD student in Computer and Systems Sciences with focus on Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing of Healthcare Data

Deep learning based on various neural network architectures has seen tremendous success in recent years, substantially outperforming alternative learning approaches in fields such as natural language processing. By learning abstract representations through multiple processing layers, the learning task can be simplified while removing the need for carefully handcrafted features. Deep learning hence provides an effective paradigm for obtaining end-to-end learning models from complex data, such as the vast amounts of longitudinal and heterogeneous data that are stored in electronic health records. Learning general-purpose representations of patients can be useful for modeling patient trajectories and disease progression, supporting early prediction and detection of adverse events, such as healthcare-associated infections or adverse drug effects. There are numerous open research questions w.r.t. deep learning from healthcare data, including (i) effectively learning from small amounts of (labeled) data through, e.g., unsupervised pre-training, (ii) modeling the temporality of clinical events, and (iii) creating interpretable models that can be understood by clinical decision makers.

The PhD project involves designing novel deep learning architectures that address these challenges in order to make better use of heterogeneous healthcare data, in particular free-text clinical notes, for ultimately supporting healthcare by improving patient safety and reducing healthcare costs. In HEALTH BANK, we have access to eight years of specialized healthcare data from Karolinska University Hospital and are currently in the process of also obtaining primary care data, thereby allowing patients to be followed throughout the healthcare system.

Three research application in Health Informatics are funded!

Three research applications from the IS unit researchers have been approved. The applications were all sent to the Stockholm County Council (SLL) – Stockholm University Call in October 2017.

KVALPA: What quality indicators in the patient journal’s free text are needed to measure the quality of care? The project aims to create an automatic method for this through machine learning. Project leader: Hercules Dalianis

IMPROVE JANUSMED WITH PROCESS MINING. The project is about developing safer drug prescription by evaluating and improving Janusmed with process mining. Janusmed is a decision support system that controls and warns whether there is a risk of serious drug interactions as well as side effects due to enhanced effects when co-administered with multiple drugs. Stockholm County Council (SLL) provides, develops and manages Janusmed. Janusmed is available today on the web via janusinfo.se and is also integrated with the SLL journal systems. To the best of our knowledge, process mining has not yet been applied in any research project in Sweden. Project leader: Paul Johannesson. Participants: Amin Jalali, Erik Perjons (and Uno Fors in a limited role).

CAPABILITY AND VALUE-BASED CHANGE ANALYSIS OF THE 1177 VÅRDGUIDEN. The aim of the project is to develop a method to support the management organization for the 1177 Vårdguiden at SLL in assessing and analyzing how change proposals of the 1177 service, including affects on the various actors involved in the network around the service – and estimates of costs and benefits for the various actors. The method is based on (1) network-based analysis of the values and abilities of the various stakeholders in the network, and (2) on existing enterprise architecture of the management organization – in form of enterprise models such as value, process and information models over the 1177 service. Project leader: Erik Perjons. Participants: Martin Henkel, Ilia Bider (and Anders Tell in a limited role).
