The 2nd Working Group on Neurocritical Care Informatics

Thursday, September 15Marriott Residence Inn, National Harbor, MD

Limited seating.  No registration fee, but you must register to attend.
The second meeting of the Working Group on Neurocritical Care Informatics will be held September 15, 2016 just prior to the annual meeting of the Neurocritical Care Society in National Harbor, MD.

This Year’s Theme:  
Creating a Sustainable Neuroinformatics Ecosphere
       Sustainable: Moving beyond a solution for one institution or clinical trial to a standards-based methodology that is sustainable in terms of value and economics
       Ecosphere:  The web of data sources, applications, portals, etc. that can be interconnected to provide precision medicine, optimum workflows, patient safety, and continuous learning


Defining the Ecosphere:  Two connected neuro ICUs will be described and the barriers and benefits discussed. 
       Emanuela Keller, MD (Zurich)
       Claude Hemphill, MD (UCSF)
Connecting the Ecosphere:  This session will highlight connectivity challenges beyond devices (EMR, infusion pumps, etc.) as well as continuing efforts to achieve a seamless data flow. 
       Dawai Olson, PhD (UT Southwestern)
       Eric Rosenthal, MD  (MGH)
       Linda Ricci  (FDA)
       Soojin Park, MD (Columbia)
The Value Proposition: This session will focus on uses of the data that bring value to patient care and add to the sustainability of the ecosphere. Topics will include alarms, apps, precision medicine, decision support, visualization, and others.
       Neeraj Badjatia, MD (U Maryland)

Moberg Presents Poster at 2016 Military Health System Research Symposium

Dick Moberg, CEO of Moberg ICU Solutions, presented work performed by the company at the recent Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS). The MHSRS is an annual conference focused on research that helps assess and maintain the health of our troops and veterans.

Moberg ICU Solutions receives funding from the U.S. Army. Our poster, co-authored by Dr. Anna Rodriguez (Dir. of Research at Moberg ICU Solutions) and Dr. Peter Smielewski (Univ. of Cambridge, UK), reported on the use of a device data integrator (our CNS Monitor) in two large brain injury trials in the U.S. and Europe (TRACK-TBI and CENTER-TBI). The Moberg CNS Monitor is increasingly becoming the instrument of choice for multi-center trials that need to collect neurological data in critical care.

The Practice of Neurocritical Care Textbook

The Practice of Neurocritical Care, by the Neurocritical Care Society represents a new approach to medical textbooks. This book includes a range of topics, many of which have been discussed at prior Neurocritical Care Society annual meetings, with current and expanded content, tables, figures, and critical references.

This offering is authored and published exclusively by physician, nursing, and pharmacy leaders in the field who represent the Neurocritical Care Society, the first and largest multidisciplinary international medical society focused on neurocritical care. This textbook can be used as part of preparation for the neurocritical care certification examination, or for the neurocritical care portion of the boards for neurology, neurosurgery, or other critical care specialties. But beyond this, we believe it is valuable to any practitioner interested in a current update on Neurocritical Care from experts in the field.
