Medical students win awards at recent healthcare data analysis competition

Congratulations to Case Western Reserve School of Medicine students Jessica Scarborough (G3 MSTP) and Lauren Fane (MS1), who won awards in the MD++ Datathon in January, a national healthcare data analysis competition.

Jessica Scarborough

Jessica's team won 3rd place, and their project found that socioeconomic factors influence cost burden more than individual health characteristics in deliveries involving severe maternal morbidity.

Lauren Fane

Lauren's team won finalist standing (top 8), and they found that, of patients who develop postpartum hemorrhage, Black patients are more likely to develop severe maternal morbidity after controlling for other sociodemographic factors.
