Biomedical Informatics Grand Rounds
“Opioid crisis on Long Island - a data driven approach”

Wednesday, January 30, 2019 3pm—4pm
BMI Conference Room HSC-L3 Room 045

By using innovative hotspot mapping of NYS SPARCS data in conjunction with analyzing community-based programs that support the opioiddependent
community new insights are gained to inform possible interventions across Long Island. Data visualization drives understanding of
where to target resources for research and practice to improve public health. This work has spurred not only interaction across departments
at Stony Book but across the greater community.
