Cohort Discovery (i2b2)
Activities preparatory to research often require understanding the availability of subjects and specimens meeting certain criteria. i2b2, a software application supported by the Weill Cornell Medical College Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) and the National Institutes of Health and developed by Partners Healthcare, enables investigators to perform self-service queries of de-identified data from Epic, WCMC’s outpatient EHR, to determine counts of items of interest. After preliminary de-identified queries have been completed, investigators have the option of approaching the IRB for approval to obtain identified data sets to support further research activities, including prospective trials and retrospective studies.
