Biomedical Informatics Monthly Lunch & Learns – February – April
Join us for one of three sessions to learn about three specific resources provided by the Biomedical Informatics team and the honest broker processes that help streamline your research projects while ensuring compliance. Space is limited, and each session is limited to 25 registered participants.
Tools & Resources to be Discussed
- REDCap – REDCap is a largely self-service application for rapidly building a database, including an intuitive, multi-user web based interface for collecting data via surveys and internal forms.
- i2b2 – This tool provides an easy to use, self-service method for MCW researchers to query the i2b2 Clinical & Translational Research Informatics Data Warehouse to answer the question “Does the warehouse contain a cohort of patients with a my specified set of characteristics?”. Search criteria can include patient demographics, ICD coded diagnoses, ICD and CPT coded procedures, laboratory test results, inpatient pharmacy orders and text within clinical documents, including surgical pathology reports and radiology reports.
- Image De-Identification Service – Our team provides a service for anonymization of images and a centralized data management resource to support investigators and research studies. The service center has implemented a series of systems that consistently enforce HIPAA regulations for image extracts from PACS, thereby protecting patient confidentiality and allows selective data sharing among collaborators and industry sponsors.
Who Should Attend
Any faculty, staff, and students who are involved with research and who have not attended a previous presentation on the tools
