Global Sentiment Towards COVID-19 on Twitter

Twitter is one of the major social media platforms highlighting public opinion. With over 330 million users across the globe, Twitter provides insights into global sentiments on many topics. One can estimate global sentiments towards certain events relating to COVID-19 by analyzing the most common phrases and their related sentiment scores from Twitter API data. This project has compiled the most used trigrams in tweets relating to COVID-19 to calculate sentiment scores for the period from March 22 to August 7, 2020. Another goal of the project is to optimize data collection from Twitter API. Twitter limits access to tweet contents to 900 requests per 15 minutes for unpaid API users. For student data scientists, paying for increased API usage is financially infeasible. So, to deal with the rate limit, the project has written functions using the Tweepy python library to collect Twitter API data. The Pandas library has also been used to sample 139000 tweets from over 300 million. The IEEE Dataset provided sentiment scores for the full population. So, to check the integrity of my sample, I performed a Pearson correlation test between the full dataset and sample data, and got 0.84, showing the sample is representative of …

Mitigating Usability Issues in Legacy EHR Systems to Improve Patient Safety: A Learning Health System Approach

This paper describes an on-going research project examining currently used processes in both hospitals and EHR vendor companies for identifying, prioritizing, and mitigating electronic health record (EHR) software issues, and usability issues, that may compromise patient safety as they arise in the implemented or legacy EHR system. This on-going project includes 3 interviews with CMIOs at hospitals and 3 interviews with EHR vendors. Next steps include surveying both groups. The project can be considered as part of a learning health system (LHS) approach in that it seeks to identify best practices in terms of the process for addressing these EHR issues. The LHS approach seeks to improve long term outcomes in health care by identifying optimal delivery processes and to do so in a systematic, rather than a haphazard way. (Friedman & Rigby, 2013).

Using Query Expansion to Improve Findability of Resources Addressing Multiple Chronic Conditions

With advances in natural language processing (NLP), machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), there are new opportunities for improving findability among existing public-facing resources. This project seeks to inform findability, especially for multiple chronic condition (MCC) resources, by describing current search capabilities and limitations across several of AHRQ’s publicly available domains and by identifying and piloting a novel NLP/ML approach to make suggested improvements. This work intentionally engages with the overlap of numerous disciplines including information extraction, information retrieval, data and text mining, knowledge management, and best practices in health care. We are looking to apply this work across all domains but will start by focusing on specific AHRQ domains. Given limited API access, we scraped the content of digital.ahrq.gov and the patient centered medical home (PCMH) resources and performed automated search using a set of related terms that align with an MCC scenario: hypertension, osteoarthritis, and chronic kidney disease. We obtained results confirming the limitations of existing search.

Analysis of a US Department of Energy Emergent Technologies Cohort

As a major user of engineered nanoparticles, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) uses various methods to monitor the health of emergent technologies workers (ETW) who handle or could potentially be exposed to unbound engineered nanoparticles (UNP). Using data from DOE’s Illness and Injury Surveillance Program (IISP), Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) created a registry of ETWs. IISP currently tracks 125,000 workers at 14 DOE facilities. Workers in IISP, who were classified as ETWs, were placed in a separate database using Microsoft Access. Using SAS (Version 9.2; Cary, NC), the health status of this cohort was analyzed by a variety of different variables such as age, gender, occupation, years of employment, number of years classified as an ETW, and site.
