The Informatics team can provide support for a number of different tools, useful for Cohort discovery, recruitment and retention, data capture and research design.
i2b2: informatics for integrating biology and the bedside
A scalable informatics framework that facilitates self-service exploration and query of the clinical data that has been de-identified and aggregated. i2b2 helps with study feasibility and cohort discovery by allowing a researcher to query various inclusion/exclusion criteria, as well as ascertain the potential for recruitment.
power trials prescreening
A Cerner-developed, HIPAA compliant prescreening platform that enables a researcher to search the electronic health record (EHR) for potential research participants using pre-established, IRB-approved inclusion and/or exclusion criteria. This tool allows for the discovery of potentially eligible patients both at the point of care, and those admitted within a recent timeframe.
TriNetX is a dynamic, data driven platform that accelerates research by leveraging the i2b2 data warehouse and Cerner PowerChart (EHR) to independently perform cohort discovery/feasibility searches using de-identified, aggregate data. Employing an easily navigable user interface, a researcher can generate a query using specific enrollment criteria (e.g., diagnosis, procedures, medications, labs, etc.). Additionally, TriNetX has the ability to perform analysis of the identified cohort and “estimated rate of arrival” projections.
