What issue does the Core address?
The Core helps researchers and quality improvement teams use the vast array of data available in today's healthcare world. As a part of operations, BIDMC collects and stores large amounts of electronic data. We also have an extensive research and quality improvement community. However, high-quality analysis of this data requires iterative refinement of queries and cohort building by experts familiar with both the data and with working with investigators and improvers. The InSIGHT Core provides a translation layer, helping our researchers and QI teams get access to reliable, high quality data in a way they can use it.
