The CRI’s Clinical Research Data Warehouse (CRDW) is a repository of University of Chicago medical data dating back to 2006. The CRDW team brings together data from disparate sources, including Epic electronic medical records, Centricity billing, Cancer Registry, and REDCap, to create cohesive datasets for research. This resource has contributed to dozens of published papers since its launch in 2012.
CRDW data include lab values, procedure and diagnosis codes, demographics, medications, and visit information—and we’re always working to expand the amount and types of data available.
The i2b2 web interface is populated with the CRDW’s most commonly requested data points. You can use i2b2 (accessible with your BSD or UCHAD login) to query the data in the CRDW, find potential cohorts for research studies and clinical trials, and familiarize yourself with the data elements we have available.
