MyChart Research Recruitment
MyChart Research Recruitment program enables study teams to send study participation invites in bulk to Emory patients. The Recruitment Center works with study teams to create queries against Epic’s Clarity Database which are used to find patients who meet most of a study’s inclusion criteria and links the data to Epic’s Reporting Workbench platform to initiate messaging. Currently in the Pilot Phase.

Local Cohort Identification
We provide consultations to help researchers leverage various informatics tools to identify potential study participants. With expertise in Reporting Workbench, Caboodle, Clarity, Emory’s Healthcare Analytics Platform, and legacy Clinical Data Warehouse we can help researchers get the right data for their projects.

Epic SlicerDicer is a self-service reporting tool that enables clinicians to parse local populations of patient data stored in Epic Caboodle. Users can find the data they need to investigate a explore ideas, and then refine or reformulate their searches on the fly to better understand their populations. Beyond a broad patient data model, there are models for billing, decision support, ED encounters, imaging, and laboratory data.

Learn how to explore large cohorts of patients for study multisite feasibility assessment or ongoing research. Cosmos has a broad representation of the US population and includes most of the same structured data found in Emory’s local Epic instance including inpatient, outpatient, laboratory, demographic, and longitudinal data.
