Deep Learning with Enforced Data Consistency

news outletIEEE Xplore
Publish DateJuly 10, 2024

In this manuscript we explore a computationally efficient approximation to hard data consistency. We present results when adding this data consistency layer into two existing networks designed for MRI reconstruction. After retraining with the additional consistency layer, the networks show improved out-of-distribution performance and suppression of hallucinations.

MENDS-on-FHIR: leveraging the OMOP common data model and FHIR standards for national chronic disease surveillance

news outletJAMIA
Publish DateJuly 10, 2024

The Multi-State EHR-Based Network for Disease Surveillance (MENDS) is a population-based chronic disease surveillance distributed data network that uses institution-specific extraction-transformation-load (ETL) routines. MENDS-on-FHIR examined using Health Language Seven’s Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (HL7® FHIR®) and US Core Implementation Guide (US Core IG) compliant resources derived from the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP) Common Data Model (CDM) to create a standards-based ETL pipeline.
