Partners Center for Healthcare Data Science
Partners Healthcare Systems (PHS) has rich patient-level data for cutting edge research into preventing, diagnosing, and treatment of disease. These data are largely generated via the Partners electronic health record (EHR) system, supplemented by a wealth of laboratory/test data from patient care and research projects.
The Partners Center for Healthcare Data Science builds a systematic infrastructure that augments existing patient-level data within PHS with long-term outcome information and utilization data across the care continuum. The Research Core is set up to manage the day-to-day operations of the Center. This will substantially improve PHS clinical data analytics infrastructure as well as accelerate research and discovery.
