  5. 5. Defining Translation  trans·la·tion (noun): an act, process, or instance of translating: as  a: a rendering from one language into another; also : the product of such a rendering  b: a change to a different substance, form, or appearance  c: a transformation of coordinates in which the new axes are parallel to the old ones 5 Source: Merriam Webster Dictionary (http://www.merriam-webster.com/)
  6. 6. Basic Science Clinical Research Clinical and Public Health Practice Clinical and Translational Science (CTS): Translation in the Context of Biomedicine 6 Knowledge Generation Common information needs, including:  Data collection and management  Integration  Knowledge management  Delivery  Presentation Application Continuous Cycle T1 T2
  7. 7. Defining Systems Thinking  Systems thinking is the process of understanding how things influence one another within a whole  Approach to problem solving where "problems" are viewed as parts of an overall system  Major goal is to avoid development of unintended consequences as a result of solving problems in isolation  Promotes organizational communication at all levels in order to avoid the “silo” effect 7 Source: Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systems_thinking)
  8. 8. 8 An Argument For “Translational Informatics”: Bridging Translation and Systems Thinking Improved Translation Systems Thinking Advances in Human Health Enabled by Biomedical Informatics
  9. 9. Extending the Argument for Translational Informatics: Current Trends 9 Learning Healthcare Systems • Instrumenting the clinical environment • Generating hypotheses • Creating a culture of science and innovation Precision Medicine • Rapid evidence generation cycle(s) • „omics‟ • Analytics/decision support Big Data • System-level thinking • Data science Integrated and High Performing Healthcare Research and Delivery Systems Learning from every patient encounter Leveraging the best science to improve care Identifying and solving complex problems Rapid Translation
  10. 10. A Test-Bed:  The Center for Clinical and Translational Science (OSU CCTS) was founded in 2006, and is a collaboration among  The Ohio State University (OSU)  All seven health sciences colleges  Colleges of arts and sciences, business, and engineering  OSU Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC)  Nationwide Children's Hospital (NCH)  Community health and education agencies  Business partnerships  Regional institutional networks  CTSA funded in 2008  The OSU CCTS provides financial, organizational, and educational support to biomedical researchers, as well as opportunities for community members to participate in credible and valuable research.  Focused on turning the scientific discoveries of today into life-changing disease prevention strategies and the health diagnostics and treatments of tomorrow 10
  11. 11. Outline  Motivation  The evolving clinical and translational science ecosystem  The role of informatics in clinical and translational research  The OSU Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS)  Lessons from the OSU CCTS  Next Steps  Emergent needs  The importance of implementation science  Workforce development  Discussion 11
  12. 12. Applying a Strategic Framework to Translational Informatics Dynamic Informatics Strategy Anticipating needs Challenging assumptions Interpreting “signals” Translating plans Alignment Learning and improving
  13. 13. Anticipating Needs: Simplifying Programmatic Objectives 13
  14. 14. Challenging Assumptions: Improving Stakeholder Access and Optimizing Resource Utilization 14
  15. 15. Interpreting Signals: Identifying Opportunities for Structural and Functional Improvements • Regular environmental scans (internal and external) • Stakeholder surveys (annual) • Targeted workflow and ethnographic studies 15 In this context, an “Ecosystem” = …a community of interacting and highly interdependent actors, resources, and processes, which function as a cohesive and collective whole…

  20. 20. Strategies & Future Directions: HIT 20 • Eliminating traditional boundaries • Focusing on economies of scale across mission areas • Bridging applied informatics and HIT practice • Semantics • NLP • Temporal Reasoning • IR • Visualization • Enabling end-user self service
  21. 21. Strategies & Future Directions: BMI • Answering people-centric questions: • Workflow • Usability • Software Design Patterns • True platform integration: • SOA and Cloud Computing • Semantic web • Knowledge engineering • Visualization and HCI • Reasoning: • Data mining • Text mining/NLP • Data integration • Knowledge discovery • Enable all stakeholders to ask and answer questions • Includes informaticians 21
  22. 22. Strategies & Future Directions: Culture  Harmonization of regulatory frameworks:  Early successes related to universal bio-specimen collection projects and GWAS/PWAS study paradigms  HIT and BMI must be partners:  Technology and methodological silos are major barriers  Socio-technical approach to platform adoption:  Adoption means more than being on-time and under-budget 22
  23. 23. Innovative Platform Development EvaluationServices Implementation Science: An Opportunity to Balance Science and Service • Knowledge representation models • Semantic reasoning algorithms • Novel architectures • Workflow modeling • Human-factors • Informatics “translation” • Workflow modeling • Human-factors • System-level models of IT adoption • “Research on research”
