This is the home of the Related Project - CARE (Cohort Analysis & Refinement Expeditors) space.
These i2b2 web client plugins enables a user to visualize the demographics of a subset of a patient set, as well as those subsets that are associated (observed) with certain concepts (ontology terms) in certain ways.
These plugins comprise the CARE (Cohort Analysis & Refinement Expeditors) Tool Set developed as a result of feedback and suggestions from the i2b2 users community in the University of Massachusetts Medical School. As its name implies, the purpose of this tool set is to facilitate and expedite the analysis of the cohorts (i.e. a subset of a patient set) and therefore hopefully the refined usage of those particular cohorts in a study.
As with any web client plugins, they can be accessed and invoked by a user via the "Analysis Tools" menu near the top right corner of the web client page. Each of these plugins is associated with the following "CARE" icon:
Each of these web client plugins can be downloaded from the site as specified in each of its specific pages.
These plugins are developed & released by the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester (S. Wayne Chan, Tom English, Rajani Sadasivam, Thomas Houston, & the rest of the BMI-Core), to be shared with the rest of the i2b2 community that may also find them useful in their institutions.
Please don't hesitate to contact us concerning any questions or problems. Thanks.
