Josua Stein is an associate professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at Michigan Medicine. He is the principal investigator of the Sight Outcomes Research Collaborative (SOURCE) consortium, a group of academic ophthalmology departments who are extracting EHR data and data from ocular diagnostic tests for all eye care recipients at their respective institutions, removing all PHI, and sending their data to the University of Michigan where him and his team are cleaning and aggregating the data and making it available to researchers at the various sites for research and Q/I projects. The team is integrating data from SOURCE into machine learning algorithms, applying systems engineering techniques to forecast disease trajectory for chronic eye diseases such as glaucoma, and other precision medicine initiatives.
