Within this course, we will work with hospital data from a collaboration partner to improve quality control processes. Students will implement software to interconnect data from different sources, design automated data analysis procedures, build dashboards for visualization, derive recommendations for decision makers in hospital regarding quality and discuss results with end users to iteratively improve performance.


For this course you must have successfully passed the courses on Computational Statistics and Hierarchical Classification (or have equivalent knowlege explicitly approved by the teaching team before the first meeting of the course). Knowledge of German is required for the communication with project partners.

Participating in a pre-meeting with the external project partners during the semester break is strongly recommended.

Participants will need to sign a confidentiality agreement with project partners and agree to publication of code under a MIT licence.
