Meet The Informationist

Guy SinghJonathan HartmannOn a recent Copyright Clearance Center webinar, an audience of researchers, data scientists and statisticians from the health care professions, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology across North America and Europe as well as in Israel, Korea, Russia and India, learned about a novel use-case of applying text mining tools – during and after patient rounds in a hospital.

With a mobile tablet computer, Jonathan Hartmann of Georgetown University Medical Center employs an innovative approach to aid physicians’ decision-making on their daily visits to their patients’ bedsides. Hartmann text mines in real-time from MEDLINE and other sources to extract critical information. In his unusual role as “the Informationist,” Hartmann is bringing a traditional medical practice into the 21st century.

Jonathan Hartmann is the Senior Clinical Informationist and Head of Data Management at Georgetown University Medical Center. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology from Kent State University and a Master of Library Science degree also from Kent State University.

Joining Hartmann on a June 24, 2016 program was Guy Singh, Senior Manager, Product and Strategic Alliances at Linguamatics; CCC’s Chris Kenneally hosted.
