Biomedical Informatics

As a partner of the MCRTC, UMMC’s Center for Informatics and Analytics (CIA) is a resource for the management of clinical and translational biomedical data.

The Informatics team assists investigators with extracting useful data from electronic medical record data sources. They also host and support several free self-service tools for research data capture and exploration of de-identified cohorts.

We offer the following services to facilitate your research:

Patient Cohort Identification

The Patient Cohort Explorer (PCE) extracts useful data from electronic medical records to assist with patient cohort identification, trial recruitment, feasibility determination, study design, and more.

Clinical Data Extraction

The CIA aids in the extraction and processing of medical data accessed from UMMC’s Epic medical records through the Research Data Warehouse (RDW).
