Engagement in care is essential for the health of people with HIV, but only half of people with HIV in the U.S. receive regular medical care. Dr. Ridgway will discuss her research utilizing machine learning models based on electronic medical record data to predict engagement in care among people with HIV. She has developed machine learning models using structured data as well as natural language processing of unstructured clinical notes. She will discuss challenges and pitfalls in utilizing electronic medical record data for HIV-related predictive modeling, as well as implications for implementation in clinical practice.


Jessica Ridgway, MD, MS, is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Section of Infectious Diseases and Global Health and Director of Medical Informatics at the University of Chicago. She is Director of Predictive Analytics for the Chicago Center for HIV Elimination. Her research focuses on utilizing large electronic medical record databases to understand HIV epidemiology across the continuum of care and implementation of clinical informatics interventions to improve HIV care and prevention.
