Profile

Jeremy Warner joined the faculty at Vanderbilt University in August 2012 as an Assistant Professor with a primary appointment in Hematology/Oncology, and secondary appointment in Biomedical Informatics. His clinical focus is in the area of lymphoid neoplasms, which are diseases of the blood, lymph nodes, and blood-forming organs. His research interests are primarily focused on clinical cancer informatics, specifically: (1) natural language processing to extract clinical facts from narrative oncology texts; (2) visualization of the dissemination and uptake of new oncology treatments and technology innovations; and (3) high-dimensional data visual analytics. He is active in multiple informatics, cancer, and standards specialty societies. He is the immediate past Chair of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)'s Health Information Technology Work Group, which focuses on bringing new and innovative technologies to the routine care of cancer patients. He is also an Associate Editor of ASCO’s new journal, JCO Clinical Cancer Informatics.

Research Description

My personal history of a combination of training in the computational and medical sciences affords me a unique perspective on the use of health information technology to leverage and transform data into knowledge. Through my research activities, I recognize the potential that electronic health record data offers, and the obstacles to accessing the vast amounts of clinical information that reside in narrative text. My research interests are focused on the development of methodologies to make use of structured and unstructured clinical data to directly improve clinical care for cancer patients.
