A Farewell Message from Kevin Johnson

Chair of DBMI

Dear Friends and Colleagues:
I sit here drafting this message amid nearly 20 years of memories from my time at Vanderbilt, while listening to James Taylor music. As I look around the office, I see how much I’ve grown, thanks to so many people. 
On the wall, I have a number of plaques and certificates—opportunities for me to serve the country and world because of how much your thinking and actions have influenced my conceptual model of how informatics can improve the health and health care ecosystem.
In the files, I have the artifacts of recruitments (some successful, some not), research projects, VU/VUMC Committees that resulted in things like the migration to Epic, the creation of REDCap Mobile, but also the VU Strategic Plan and even our Centers. On the shelves, I have many heartfelt tokens of appreciation from all of you (and many more at home!). Mostly, as I clean out the office, I have fond memories of all the ways we’ve worked together for both personal and the greater good! I can’t begin to list all the remarkable ways we’ve impacted the local, regional, national and international landscape. 
However, I can tell you that it’s been my privilege to help you do it all. DBMI has become the model environment for conducting informatics research, thanks to our collaborative culture, incredibly talented staff, inquisitive trainees and wonderful physical environment. I can also share with you my profound gratitude for all you’ve done for me through collaborating on scientific and operational projects, nurturing my curiosity and supporting me through some major parts of my journey through life.
As that famous communicator, Dr. Seuss, reminds us, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” As I look around my office, and as I physically touch artifacts of our time together, I’m smiling, and I hope each of you do as well.

AI Predicts Next-Day Delirium or Coma in ICU Patients

Critical care patients are prone to shift intermittently into delirium or coma without warning. A team at Vanderbilt University Medical Center used machine learning to predict the likelihood of next-day brain function status changes in these patients. The team’s report appears in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association.

“Time spent in the ICU with delirium or coma is associated with increased mortality and adverse long-term outcomes such as dementia. Reliable next-day forecasting of these patient transitions into and out of acute brain dysfunction could go a long way toward improving care and ICU resource allocation,” said the principal investigator of the study, You Chen, PhD, FAMIA, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics.
Other Vanderbilt investigators on the study include lead author Chao Yan, a computer science PhD candidate, Cheng Gao, PhD, Ziqi Zhang, Wencong Chen, PhD, Bradley Malin, PhD, FACMI, FAIMBE, FIAHSI, E. Wesley Ely, MD, and Mayur Patel, MD, MPHRead more in the VUMC Reporter.

DBMI Spotlight: Elizabeth Brown

Each month, we will feature one or more members of our DBMI faculty, staff, student, trainee or alumni. If you or someone you know is new to the department, has an interesting backstory, or is making an impact at work or in their personal lives, email Mia Garchitorena at mia.garchitorena@vumc.org!  
As Chief Business Officer of DBMI, Elizabeth Brown is the backbone of the department. She spends her days juggling various administrative and financial tasks, including resolving personnel issues, handling multi-million-dollar budgets, assisting with recruitment and student affairs and more.  
“I jump from one extreme thing to another,” she says with a laugh. “You have to be nimble and be able to move quickly.”
Elizabeth’s workload has only increased during the pandemic, like it has for many of us in DBMI. But she continues to be a stable force in the department. If someone seeks her help, she will do anything to point you in the right direction, even if she doesn’t have direct answers herself. “I know just enough about 100 things!” she says.
Elizabeth grew up in the Nashville suburb of Hendersonville until she left for Tuscaloosa to attend the University of Alabama, where she majored in finance.
She chose finance because it meant she “could work in any industry because every place has a budget,” she explains. “I could work in a hospital, the travel industry, or a Fortune 500 company! It would open doors to lots of different environments.”
Her first job out of school was in commercial real estate at the Dollar General Corporation, where she negotiated rent and lease deals at shopping centers across the U.S. Afterwards, she worked at Tennessee State University as the Director of Financial Programs.
By summer 2006, she applied to VUMC as her husband, Clint (whom she met during her senior year of college), had just begun working there and is currently the Director of Sponsored Programs. Pictured above: Clint and Elizabeth married in 2004 after six years of dating.
She received offers from three departments for administrative officer positions, including in DBMI. She chose DBMI because she had a “really good feeling” about Dan Masys, MD, FACMI, former Chair of DBMI, and Kevin Johnson, MD, MS, FAAP, FAMIA, FACMI, FIAHSI.
“The culture Kevin built within the department continued to grow in a positive way,” she says of Dr. Johnson’s time as Chair of DBMI. “Because of that culture, people want to be here and stay. That’s unique.”
Pictured left: Kevin and Elizabeth handing out gifts to employees during the holidays, 2020.
Elizabeth shares her favorite things about Kevin, who departs DBMI after October 2021: “To find someone who cares so much about people on a personal level, from the students to staff and faculty, and be so sincere about it – I’ve enjoyed that the most about Kevin. I also appreciate his creative ideas on how to solve issues. That’s been incredibly helpful to me.”
The eldest of three girls, Elizabeth and her sisters’ future careers were heavily influenced by their father, an educator with a PhD in math.
“Education was important in our household,” she says. “We were raised with the idea that education and a strong work ethic were vitally important to get to where you want to go.”
Pictured right, from left to right: Elizabeth with Allison, a research administrative officer in infectious disease at VUMC; Amy, a medical software salesperson in Alabama; and their mother, Sandy.
Elizabeth and her siblings all ended up working in health care, which Elizabeth says isn’t a coincidence on her part. “I had an internal pull towards health care, due to experiencing various health issues myself,” she says. 

A turning point in Elizabeth’s life was at age 12, when she was diagnosed with a cardiac issue, a condition which created extreme heart rate deviations. She underwent a surgical procedure by age 18 and received medications to control her condition while she was away at college. However, after graduating, her condition worsened so much that she had no choice but to move back home to Nashville. “It was something I didn’t want to do. I was very independent and had grandiose plans for traveling.”   
Soon after moving back, she was admitted to the hospital, where she experienced such a severe episode that she “coded.” She was 24. Thankfully, after receiving a pacemaker, her condition improved. Now, she eats healthy meals, exercises regularly, and she undergoes acupuncture to stave off muscle pain. She still experiences the occasional flare-up, though.
“I’m grateful for the experience now, it taught me so much about myself and how strong people can be,” she continues. “You have a choice of folding and giving up or pushing through, persevering, and going along with a change in life direction.” 
This lifechanging experience inspired Elizabeth to embrace positivity and appreciate quality time spent with Clint and their eight-year-old daughter, Blair.
Pictured above, from left to right: Sandy with young Elizabeth, Blair and Elizabeth, the Brown family on vacation. 
A unique passion of Elizabeth’s is going all-out when hosting holiday dinners or themed parties for Blair and her friends. Elizabeth recently threw Blair a science-themed birthday party (pictured left) that included a tablecloth with a periodic table on it, an elaborate spread of food (with “hazardous hash browns”), security clearance and more!
“Blair is very intellectual and loves science,” Elizabeth says. “Since she was two, she’s always wanted to be a pediatric surgeon – she’s obsessed with medicine and bones!”
“I found that as I’ve gotten older, I like to cook, set a beautiful table and make an occasion special. It’s the way I show love to people,” she continues. “I want to create a nice, enjoyable experience for others. If I can do that with a meal and event, then great.”
Elizabeth loves to cook and is always researching recipes. If you have a favorite recipe, email her at elizabeth.a.brown@vumc.org!
