What is the Research Workbench?
The Research Workbench is an extension of the CTSA One Health Alliance (COHA) designed to facilitate multi-site collaboration and access to de-identified patient data in a searchable online database. This tool functions as an instrument for cohort discovery which utilizes electronic medical record (EMR) and Pubmed data to facilitate evidence-based research through a common data model (Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership; OMOP) modified for use with veterinary data (OMOPV5+).
This approach allows data to be integrated across EMRs from multiple institutions, and transforms data into a format with common terminologies and coding schemes that can be used to perform systemic multi-institutional analyses. Clinicians and investigators can leverage this tool to construct multi-site cohort discovery inquires and systemic reviews, facilitating identification of collaborator institutions to accelerate multi-site research studies.
Who can Access
