EHR Data Access: The BERD Biomedical Informatics team extracts EHR data from several platforms, encompassing the Inpatient, Ambulatory Care, Emergency Department, Operating Room, and Same-Day Surgery care delivery environments. The user interfaces for these systems range from intuitive Google-like interfaces to SQL databases which require the user to have experience in writing structured queries in Oracle, MS SQL, and MySQL. We leverage EHR data to provide investigators and research groups with cohorts for grant proposals, retrospective chart reviews, and clinical trial recruitment, as well as datasets for both retrospective and prospective analyses.
