Analyzing critical care data, from speculation to publication, starring MIMIC-IV (Part 1)

Alistair Johnson

Abstract: Despite a wealth of data, only a small fraction of decisions in critical care are evidence based. In this tutorial we will start with the conception of an idea, solidify the hypothesis, operationalize the concepts involved, and execute the study in a reproducible and communicable fashion. We will run our study on MIMIC-IV, an update to MIMIC-III, and cover some of the exciting additions in the new database. This tutorial will be interactive and result in a study performed end-to-end in a Jupyter notebook. Technical expertise is not required, as we will form groups based on skill level.
