Data Catalog

A collaboration between UMass Medical School CCTS, PQHS, and IT with UMass Memorial Health Care Information Technology  (UMMHC IT)  enabled the creation of the UMMS Data Lake, which is a large repository of data from heterogeneous clinical systems. The Data Lake securely integrates clinical, research (genetic, epigenetic, transcriptomic, microbiome), socio-economic, behavioral, and patient-reported data), bio-banking, and molecular data.

In 2017, UMMHC implemented a research-favorable Epic electronic health record (EHR) system that provided the opportunity to improve the quality and efficiency of scientific data collection, patient safety, and patient and provider participation in research.
