Data Core

Emergency Medicine: Data Abstraction Core provides access to data abstracted from BIDMC Hospital Data Servers. The data includes hospital labs, medications, microbiology reports, and radiology/CT scan reports. The Core also provides access to intensive care unit data which includes the above but also vitals, ventilation data, nursing assessments, and severity scores such as the SOFA score. This service provides unparalleled accuracy and efficiency as data can be abstracted seamlessly. In addition, the Core provides statistical analysis of the data including descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing, and data interpretation and graphical presentation.
