USC 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 find the number of patients at Keck, or DHS (depending on their affiliation) that meet study inclusion and exclusion criteria. With IRB approval, researchers can also request identifiable patient information for screening or recruitment purposes from the CRI team.
Self-Service Data Requests
Using i2b2, users can search health system data for de-identified counts of patients who meet certain inclusion and exclusion criteria (i.e., cohort discovery). The search tool is accessible via a web browser and is self-service.
