Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Leverage Information Technology to Improve Patient Safety in Surgery

Progress toward a six-sigma level of safety (already achieved in commercial aviation) has been slow in medicine and surgery. The best cardiac surgery program operates at only 3.5 sigma level. In order to acceletate this process, it is critical to leveage recent advances in information technology, including but not limited to natural language processing (NLP), advanced speech recognition, artificial intelligence.
