Data Services

The Research Informatics Core (RIC) provides various clinical research data services to support the UMASS Medical Research Community. Specifically, we assist with extracting high-dimensional data from Epic and other data sources to support clinical research, including:

Access to clinical data: We provide clinical data from the Epic electronic health record system to support research programs. Data requests are typically for Patient Recruitment and Retrospective Research to support Quality Improvement or any other clinical research studies.

Project Management, Data Analytics, Reporting, Visualization: We provide investigators with clinical research support in statistics, experimental design, data analytics, and project management. 

Data Science Natural Language Processing and Machine (Deep) Learning: We assist researchers in the design and implementation of solutions to complex data-related problems involving Natural Language Processing and Machine (Deep) Learning. 

Preparation for grant proposal: We also help researchers with data plan design, access to aggregate-limited (de-identified) data, and fully identified data sets to understand the patient population size to meet inclusion/exclusion criteria. RIC can also assist with budgeting, letters of support, standard security, and Informatics core blurb for grant writing. 

If you need assistance with a research project, please book a complimentary consultation with a member of our team. For more information on budgeting, please visit Funding and Budgeting Tools.
