The Data Core is equipped to provide investigators with customizable data sets for their IRB approved studies at a pre-established cost. A data analyst will work with the investigator to finalize the cohort definition, determine the variables to be included and format, and address any concerns that arise during the analysis phase.
- Cohort inclusion/exclusion criteria
- Variables of interest
- Type of data (e.g. de-identified, limited, or identifiable)
- Location of data storage
- IRB documentation
- De-identified data sets are non-aggregate patient/subject level data that do not contain dates other than year (e.g. 2017, 1999, etc.) and do not contain address information beyond three digit zip code prefixes (e.g. 462, 479, etc.)
- Limited data sets require a Data Use Agreement (DUA) that is signed by the PI. They contain non-aggregate patient/subject level data and include dates and/or city, state, zip codes, and census tracts.
- Identified data sets require a Data Agreement (DA) signed by the PI only and approval from each data source (i.e. health system) providing information. They contain non-aggregate patient/subject level data that includes Protected Health Information (PHI)
