J Med Internet Res 2019 Apr 24;21(4):e13822. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Division of Systems Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, United States.

Background: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is currently diagnosed using qualitative methods that measure between 20-100 behaviors, can span multiple appointments with trained clinicians, and take several hours to complete. In our previous work, we demonstrated the efficacy of machine learning classifiers to accelerate the process by collecting home videos of US-based children, identifying a reduced subset of behavioral features that are scored by untrained raters using a machine learning classifier to determine children's "risk scores" for autism. We achieved an accuracy of 92% (95% CI 88%-97%) on US videos using a classifier built on five features. Read More

Social Media: Social Intelligence Training Module.

MedEdPORTAL 2016 Aug 26;12:10442. Epub 2016 Aug 26.

Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Saint Louis University School of Medicine.

Introduction: Physicians' posts on social media have the potential to impact the patient-physician relationship, interpersonal relationships at work, institutions' reputations, and the public's trust in health care professionals. Empirical research, along with several very public cases of unprofessional behavior by physicians on social media, suggests that resident physicians are not always aware of the implications of their actions online. Residency programs are being charged with ways to model positive online presence. Read More
