The W.K. Kellogg Eye Center is home to the University of Michigan Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, which is part of the University of Michigan Medical School and the University of Michigan Health System.
Eye diseases can be very difficult to diagnose, especially those that are detectable only by a combination of specialized tests. The goal of this project is to develop and scale a web-based software tool to help diagnose retinal disease “in the cloud.”
Past work on this project has developed an automated genetic diagnostic prediction method. The algorithm is based on machine learning, which automatically creates a model from past patient data. This is implemented in a web interface that is useful for a small number of users.
In 2017 the project team will develop a scalable and secure cloud application for clinicians around the world. This first deliverable entails developing a scalable, robust and secure server back end and a polished user interface.
