I’m working part-time on a research grant and I want to publish some of the work I’ve done on this grant. The title of the paper tentatively is “Validating elastic net generated electronic health record breast cancer phenotypes against hospital tumor registries: a case control study.” My co-authors are Dan Connolly and Russ Waitman. I want to summarize the history of the effort so far and why I am considering the BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making as the next place to submit the article.

I started this work back in February 2016, and was only able to work on this part-time. I got some results that looked publishable by September 2016. Based on the recommendation of my Russ Waitman, I submitted this for the AMIA 2017 Joint Summit on Translational Research. AMIA stands for the American Medical Informatics Association.
