Researcher | Research Overview
Yi-Ju Tseng are currently working on applying data mining technology to improve laboratories’ diagnostic capabilities and exploring the probability of using electronic medical records to support disease surveillance. Her project at CHIP was focused on measuring the changing incidence of Lyme disease in the US. She has also been working with a major US payor on a big data project on the cost of medical devices. Before she joined CHIP, she designed and developed a healthcare-associated infection surveillance system and an organism surveillance system for the Center for Infection Control at the National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH). These infection control systems have become indispensable tools for infection control programs at the NTUH.
