The Analytics Leadership Program in Patient Safety (ALPS) is a one-year elective cohort program that aims to train future leaders to apply advanced clinical analytics to transform the safety and quality of care. Open to employees within Johns Hopkins Medicine, this hands-on program trains participants in the technologies deployed at Johns Hopkins Medicine for analytics as well the theories and methodologies related to health care data compilation, analysis and use. ALPS fellows will work closely with a mentor and are expected to complete original projects, evaluate their impact upon clinical practice, and submit a manuscript of their findings to a peer-reviewed journal.
Participants must be able to devote six weeks of time over the course of the yearlong program.
