Clinical Data

  • Georgia CTSA investigator Suresh S. Ramalingam, MD, is the Executive Director at Winship and leads the growth and development of cancer research, clinical care, and education. A study led by Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University offers new insight into what causes resistance to the non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) medication osimertinib that may prove valuable in developing more effective
  • The COVID-19 pandemic continues to present considerable public health challenges in the United States and around the globe. One of the most puzzling is why many people who get over an initial and often relatively mild COVID illness later develop new and potentially debilitating symptoms.

    Clinical notes are the best record of a provider's perceptions of their patients, but their use in studying racial bias in clinical documentation has typically been limited to manual evaluation of small datasets. In this 60-minute webinar, we discuss our investigation of the use of computational methods to scale these insights to large, heterogeneous clinical text data and the results of our

    Electronic medical record (EMR) data is encoded in patient charts through the course of clinical care and subsequent patient billing. Coded data in the electronic records (such as information stored as ICD/CPT/LOINC/RxNorm codes) provide vast amounts of valuable patient data. However, effectively applying data science tools to EMR data requires understanding dataset limitations and avoiding common

    The Mid-Atlantic Twin Registry (MATR) is an organization of twins and their families who are willing to consider taking part in twin-based, health-related research. The MATR welcomes twins of any age, ethnicity, and zygosity (identical or fraternal), as well as higher order multiples such as triplets, quadruplets and quintuplets.

    The interview-style webcast includes a variety of appropriate competencies for informatics personnel, as well as suggestions for best training practices.
  • To accelerate translation, researchers need access to a broad range of data from a variety of sources (electronic health records, imaging, genetics, behavioral, etc.). These sources manage and store data differently, which creates the need for standardization. The Informatics Common Metric, which is in its second year, addresses the need to harmonize data across the CTSA Program. This will enhance
