Conde, José G. – Population Studies Based on Publicly Available Data Sources

Dr. Conde is working with multiple-cause mortality files for the United States (about 2.5 million records per year for years 2005 to 2013) and its territories (about 30,000 records per year for years 2005 to 2013), which are available from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). His research focuses on premature mortality in various populations; multiple-cause-mortality analysis of multiple diseases, including systemic lupus erythematous, and (in collaboration with Dr. Ortiz-Zuazaga) applying new tools to visualize the association of comorbid conditions with underlying causes of death. Thus, he is familiar with NCHS mortality files structure, ICD-10 coding systems, and mortality data collection and recode procedures.

Dr. Conde brings to the project his expertise in Medicine, Public Health and Epidemiology, in addition to his experience of more than 20 years in biomedical informatics projects and infrastructure.
