Collaborative Data Science

Data science relies on working across datasets, teams, disciplines and geographies. Collaboration is crucial, as well as key frameworks. In order to be translatable to patient care, the learning health systems framework helps to conceptualize where healthcare data sits in science, care and evidence domains. Knowledge of key competencies and professions in informatics and data science will facilitate team working. Moreover, without awareness of the national and international datasets which may be available, the “big picture” benefits of data science cannot be achieved.

In this Collaborative Data Science course, you will learn the tools (e.g. phenomics and interoperability and datasets) and guiding principles (e.g. competencies and regulation) to maximize the potential advantages of health data science, whether for patients or policymakers.
