USC, CHLA and DHS research teams can use the research data warehouse for study planning (feasibility assessments, power analyses) through their respective i2b2 portals. The self-service website allows researchers to query de-identified patient data residing in the research data warehouse. For example, find the number of patients at CHLA that meet study inclusion and exclusion criteria. With the help of the CRI team, users can also extract identifiable patient information for screening or recruitment purposes with the proper IRB approval to do so. Once the warehouse data has been validated for quality, research teams will be able to perform large-scale analyses on the data already existing in the warehouse (e.g., epidemiology studies).
How to get access
CHLA researchers are required to complete Human Subjects and HIPAA training. For more information on how to complete the required training, please email email@example.com or refer the CHLA Investigator’s manual. Once complete, and reflecting in your iStar profile, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting access to CHLA i2b2.
