Data Science Services

Data science is the discipline of extracting knowledge from data and medical informatics is the science of how to use data, information, and knowledge to improve healthcare. Data Science Services (DSS) is a research analytics team that provides integrated data science and informatics expertise and serves as the research data concierge for the UHealth Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), Epic electronic health record (2.5+ million UHealth patients), Epic Cosmos (230+ million patients from 200+ healthcare organizations), and other healthcare data sources. DSS provides analytic, technical, and consultative support, education, and training to clinicians and researchers on healthcare data, self-service tools, and the effective use of all available resources to answer complex, data-intensive research questions.

Available Services

  • Datasets: we provide raw data, analytic datasets, controlled medical vocabularies, metadata, and other types of supporting documentation during the post-award through publication stages.
  • Analytics: we provide broad healthcare analytics development and support for research including techniques like machine learning, data visualization, and various business intelligence approaches.
  • Feasibility: we support research from the early design stage onwards through consultations, feasibility estimates, preliminary analyses, pre-award support, pre-IRB submission cohort size estimations, etc.
  • Tools and applications: we provide access and ongoing support for various EDW research tools like Epic SlicerDicer, Business Objects Enterprise (BOE) Clinical Universe, Human Subjects Recruitment Tool, Warthog, DWCell, etc.
  • Clinical trials: we enhance clinical trials recruitment through Epic MyChart recruiting, Human Subject Recruitment Tool (HSRT), automated BOE and Tableau reports, etc. to meet accrual goals and reduce cost.
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP): we provide clinical NLP support for retrospective as well as prospective studies using commercial products like CliniThink and text-searches using EDW tools like Oracle Text and Warthog.
  • Data management: we host research datasets within the EDW and other UHealth repositories and provide comprehensive support for datasets, recurring reports, automatically refreshed datasets, etc.
  • Collaborations and training: we support multi-center studies through Epic Cosmos and other research networks, research registries, etc., and conduct seminars, workshops, and hands-on training for departments and divisions on healthcare data.
