HWF2018 Pitch 4 Team

Pitch 4: Visualizing UM Bias Incidents Data

Submitted by: Husnu Kaplan, Michigan Medicine - HITS

Description:

Last October, UM began an online log to share information about each incident of bias reported to the university's Bias Response Team (BRT). A bias incident is conduct that discriminates, stereotypes, excludes, harasses or harms any member of the university community based on such identity factors as race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age or religion.

Bias Incidents reported to BRT are published at https://deanofstudents.umich.edu/bias-incident-report-log as raw public data.

Designing and representing this raw data can be quite impactful. Telling a visually compelling narrative will be a lot more appealing and engaging to students, faculty and staff. It has been shown that you will remember 60% something when you learn it with imagery versus 6% without and this effect increases by age. Having this data visualized will allow UM community to analyze it easily and make inquiries or take actions as appropriate.

HWF2018 Pitch 9 Team

Pitch 9: Incentivizing Spirometry - 2nd place

Submitted by: Michael Burns, Anesthesiology/MPOG

Description:
The incentive spirometer (IS) is a common device used in hospitals to improve the respiratory function of patients with lung illnesses and all patients following operations. The device is designed to incentivize patients to take deep slow breaths several times an hour. To quick or too low a breath is inadequate. Utilization of the device is often suboptimal requiring constant reminders and instruction. For our hack we want to incentivize use by creating a game played with the IS device. We envision using light sensors to capture extent of use and transmit the information real-time into a videogame that incentivizes proper use of the device. This project falls into the broader category of the internet of things (IoT) and will focus on the capture and, processing, and distribution of data that previously was inaccessible. The broader vision is to extend the design to other applications within the hospital and beyond.

HWF2018 Pitch 11 Team

Pitch 11: Free/Busy Helper for People Who Support Faculty

Submitted by: Britain Woodman, ITS Teaching & Learning

Description:
We can help IT, and other staff who support teaching faculty, more effectively serve them by quickly visualizing the faculty's teaching schedule on the support staff's calendar, making appointments and other time-sensitive activities easier to schedule with fewer back-and-forth messages.

This could be a live GCal feed of an instructor's teaching schedule, or, more realistically, translating the times from the RO schedule to an iCalendar format file for the current term. I envision a self-service web interface (input instructor and current term, get their teaching times in iCalendar format to import into your calendar).

This will only involve publicly visible teaching times from the official course schedule; not sharing the instructor's personal time; requiring no action by the faculty (although they could certainly use it to quickly fill those times in on their own calendar).

Please join me! I'm not much of a coder but I love talking.

Team members: Britain Woodman, ITS Teaching and Learning, Team Captain, Cheerleader; Breanna Hamm, University Library, Graphic Design, Documentation; Gonzalo Silverio, ITS Teaching and Learning, Developer, Front-End/UX; Heather Miller, VP for Development, Documentation; John Gallias, LSA Info.

Pitch 13: HALO - Human Attentive Locational Observer (withdrew from event)

Submitted by: Dakota Lambert, CAEN

Description:
Our goal is to create a solution for research labs, hospitals, schools, nursing homes, and other venues which need a secure cost effective people tracking system. Due to the often hectic nature in these locations, our idea is to create a system that could be easily scaled utilizing wireless technologies paired with cameras and other low cost devices such as wristbands to track individual movement within a predefined location.

This tracking would then be expanded upon with the inclusion of specific information present on the “ID” such as name, role, and could even include vital information, e.g. heart rate. In the event that a person entered the location without an ID the system would flag that individual, alert necessary personal, and begin tracking their movement in the location using facial recognition and heatmaps. This simple and cost-effective idea aims to provide a human hands-off approach to location security.

Pitch 14: Robotic Process Automation (combined with Pitch 12)

Submitted by: Tong Sun, CoE CAEN

Description:
If you repeatedly download spreadsheet, make changes then upload to another system such as Salesforce or other CRM, if you find yourself fill out the same form for your faculty more than once or twice in a week, let's work together to explore the possibility to automate these routine business processes using RPA tools. RPA software such as BluePrism, UIPath and AutomationAnywhere can mimic the ways that people interact with software applications. The goal of this project is to implement a solution and train the bots to automate manual processes.

HWF2018 Pitch 16 Team

Pitch 16: Improving patient experience using AWS IOT Button

Submitted by: Kirti Karia, HITS

Description:
AWS IOT button is an affordable programmable Wi-Fi device. Our idea is to use this device to improve patient experience and capture patient feedback.

Use case 1: Place these devices in restrooms in hospital/clinical areas. When a restroom needs cleaning or maintenance, our customers/patients can press that button, which would automatically send out a notification to environment services.

Use case 2: Place these devices in restrooms in clinical areas. When a restroom needs cleaning or maintenance, our customers/patients can press that button, which would automatically send out a notification environment services so that they can clean it

Use Case 3: Use five of these buttons to capture patient experience/satisfaction/rating at Michigan Medicine hospital.Create a box using 3d printer to house this button with one of the 11 HCAHPS publicly reported measures or overall satisfaction star rating. https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/HospitalQualityInits/Downloads/HCAHPSstarratingmethodology.pdf http://www.hcahpsonline.org/

HWF2018 Pitch 18 Team

Pitch 18: Stroke Alert - 3rd place

Submitted by: Gloria Kim, Michigan Medicine, Section of Vascular Surgery

Description:
There’s an app for ordering food, there’s an app for calling a car, there’s a wide variety of apps that make life easier. But what if we made an app that actually changed lives? In the US, someone has a stroke every 40 seconds and someone dies of a stroke every 4 minutes. There is a life-changing medication available called tPA, but this medication is only effective when administered within 4.5 hours of the first symptoms of stroke. Too often people who suffer a stroke aren’t eligible for this treatment because they did not seek medical attention soon enough. An app that uses facial recognition technology can detect whether someone may be having a stroke even before they are aware of symptoms and alert the patient to go to the nearest Emergency Room or Stroke Center. This proactive identification of individuals with possible stroke would make more individuals eligible for tPA therapy.

HWF2018 Pitch 19 Team

Pitch 19: Automation with University APIs

Submitted by: Dave Perhne, LSA

Description:
As UM developers build custom applications and acquire cloud applications, there is more of a need to integrate those applications with our Enterprise Applications, like PeopleSoft. Historically, the integration strategy has been to simply replicate data into those remote systems. However, this has left business processes fragmented and require staff to work in multiple systems, sometimes duplicating effort. There needs to be a better way to automate some common tasks.

A few potential ideas for APIs:

  • Retrieve/Update Degree Checkout Status from applied to Pending
  • Retrieve/Update Advisor/Advisee relationships
  • Retrieve/Update Student Group memberships
  • Retrieve/Update Placement Test scores

The first API alone could potentially save LSA 40 hours of work each year. Imagine the efficiencies we could gain if we had a large catalog of APIs.

Help us design, and build APIs to retrieve and update data in the PeopleSoft Student System.

HWF2018 Pitch 20 Team

Pitch 20: IT Staff New Employee Orientation

Submitted by: Linda Cox, HITS

Description:
Too often new IT staff start new jobs and don’t get a very organized or comprehensive orientation to their new department, roles, and teams. This can be a major source of dissatisfaction and limits the new staff member's ability to effectively and efficiently contribute to the team. We want to use SharePoint to create a customizable, role-specific program where orientation tasks can be assigned and tracked for each new hire. Additionally we want to create a place to house orientation materials, resources, and tools. A significant portion of this hack will be devoted to designing orientation functions, features, content ideas, processes, and roles so that we design the site and any related tools to serve the correct needs. We don't have to limit ourselves to creating static web content and tracking lists. We welcome anyone with an interest in helping new IT staff thrive in our environment and we are hoping to get creative ideas from diverse voices.
