Another disturbing example of adverse effects on equity of AI and other big data driven algorithms: Dissecting racial bias in an algorithm used to manage the health of populations

Terrific piece in NEJM by showing substantive improvements (and learning about changes that didn’t work out) balancing rigour and pragmatism - a great example for health system leaders and for researchers in quality improvement

Appreciate equanimity of over inadvertent misquote by someone live tweeting during my presentation. Agree virtual ward RCT was valuable eval given that would otherwise have been broadly implemented here in ON (as explicitly mentioned during talk)

For anyone needing evidence to counter annoying move to open-plan offices - they actually decrease face to face interaction and collaboration

It's so funny b/c I learned this a year ago but didn't talk about it with many b/c I thought I was one of the only ones who literally didn't know how to tie his shoes properly. But, it has made a noticeable difference since learning right way. The little things in life...😌

Happy to see our first visual abstract ! Content of the article itself - reductions in hospital mortality as a result of surveillance alerts - as tweet-worthy as the visual abstract. Companion editorial discusses interpretation

I also have thought of this brilliant essay by many times in the years since it came out - weaving together various fascinating threads and with a crucial call at the end for progressive causes about social justice, racism, and the environment to work together

Great summary of the important ways the research literature is distorted - publication bias + outcome reporting bias + spin, and all amplified by subsequent citation bias

Interesting piece on better measures of research quality/impact for anyone working in LMICs and probably healthcare quality improvement in general, as well as climate change and other areas for which the tool was created

excellent discussion of pros and cons of RCTs. Worth reading for any clinical or QI-type researcher with theoretic leanings. Just don’t expect to digest quickly ;)

Funny but sad and so true throughout history. Mencken's line "For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong." makes same point. Not that I am an HRO convert, but 'reluctance to simplify' is an admirable precept to counteract this tendency

Neat study in Science last week and written up in NYT identifying patients with undiagnosed genetic conditions for clinical problems by searching EHR for phenotypic patterns

For we went with blinding of editors and reviewers b/c we never saw mean reviews but did see superficial, favourable reviews of from famous groups. Since making switch several years ago, the difference has been noticable

There is evidence that author prestige affects reviews ( but also some classic, older studies) But, complex issue with arguments for and against, and may vary by field.
