Principal Data Scientist & Healthcare Provider Use Case Specialist
As a Principal Data Scientist and use case specialist for healthcare providers, Dr. Brittany Bogle collaborates with healthcare providers to design and execute technical use cases. Her expertise in data science spans descriptive analytics, predictive analytics, and decision optimization. Prior to joining IBM, she was a postdoctoral fellow in cardiovascular disease epidemiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During the fellowship, she established methodology to emulate manual adjudication of myocardial infarction and chronic heart failure within Electronic Healthcare Records (EHR) data. Separately, she built a tailorable decision support tool EMS routing strategies for suspected endovascular stroke patients. She also developed optimization models to recommend optimal statewide drone station placement with an objective to minimize the time to delivery of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to witnesses of cardiac arrest. She is currently a co-investigator on a pilot study to assess the effectiveness of AED-equipped drone delivery. Dr. Bogle has also worked with Chicago Department of Public Health, Northwestern University Department of Preventive Medicine, and RAND Corporation to develop optimization and machine learning solutions. Dr. Bogle is the lead author of 8 peer reviewed manuscripts and has presented work at various research conferences including INFORMS, Winter Simulation Conference, American Heart Association and the International Stroke Conference. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from the University of Arkansas as well as a MS/PhD in Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences and a Master’s in Public Health from Northwestern University.
