The SC CTSI provides services enabling complete access and analysis of patient data from the electronic medical records of Keck Medicine of USC, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Department of Health Services. We also provide de-identified access to data from partners in federated research networks such as 20 Million patients in the Patient-Centered National Network for Effectiveness Research (pSCANNER), the Los Angeles Data Resource (LADR), the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network PCORNET and more than 158 million patient records in Cerner Health Facts. Not sure how to navigate through all these data sources? We can help.
- Data Fulfillment Services: USC, CHLA, and DHS investigators can receive raw extracts of de-identified, aggregate, and with documented IRB approval identified patient data sets (depending on the source system). The SC CTSI team assists with curating datasets to fit specific needs.
- Data Development Services: Investigators seeking assistance with data preparation and cleaning can request help from clinical data experts that coordinate with the SC CTSI Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Study Design (BERD) team.
- Link Geospatial data to mobile Health (mHealth) data: In collaboration with the Spatial Sciences Institute at USC and the mHealth Collaboratory, the SC CTSI provides services for investigators with an interest in linking geospatial and mHealth data.
