Presenter: Philip Ng, from Rochester University

Date: October 13, 2016


As part of the i2b2 Community Collaboration Improvements, we will be having Educational Seminars in which a member of the community will present their work to other members of the community. The first of hopefully many seminars will be held Thursday October 13 from 2:00 to 3:30. Philip Ng and Curtis Culbertson from the University of Rochester Medical Center will present an overview of their work using Epic, i2b2, and REDCap. They have previously presented their work at the 2016 April Epic XGM conference.


Using existing work building i2b2 and integrating with REDCap and Excel, we are able to leverage MyChart questionnaires and SmartData Notes, and automated methods to classify and display data-dictionary information to drive end-user, staff directed access to create structured data-sets through a drag-and-drop interface to quickly service research requests, reducing overall staff effort.
