Innovation Grand Rounds: Clinical Innovation in Trauma: From Inception to Automation to Impact

Blog Innovation Grand Rounds Khurana

Innovation Grand Rounds is a monthly live series with talks by innovators and executives from across the Mass General Brigham system. Bharti Khurana, MD, FACR, recently spoke about her work developing tools to detect intimate partner violence.

 

On August 18, 2022, Bharti Khurana, MD, FACR, Founder, Director and Principal Investigator of the Brigham Trauma Imaging Research and Innovation Center (TIRIC) and emergency radiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, gave an Innovation Grand Rounds lecture titled “Clinical Innovation in Trauma: From Inception to Automation to Impact.”

Dr. Khurana opened her talk with a simple definition of innovation that she learned from Dr. Fiona E. Murray, Associate Dean of Innovation and Inclusion at the MIT School of Management, “the process of taking ideas from inception to impact.” This definition highlights that innovation is more than a single moment of invention, and requires a diverse team, organizational support, and a strong innovation ecosystem.

Dr. Khurana’s innovations focus on automated injury detection from medical images, clinical decision support to detect intimate partner violence, predict geriatric frailty from medical images, and more. In her Grand Rounds, she spoke about her intimate partner violence (IPV) research and how multi-disciplinary efforts have helped refine the algorithms she and her team have developed to predict IPV.
