Who uses the DRC?
Clinicians & Financial Analysts
Until recently, our primary customers have been hospital Clinicians & Financial Analysts,
who rely on current and historical data (8+ years) in our enterprise data warehouse to support their business
and operational processes, including
- quality assurance and operational outcome studies,
- patient referral rate tracking
- and financial trending, to name just a few.
Students & Educators
More recently, our enterprise data warehouse has been discovered by Students & Educators,
who use de-identified medical data as a "living textbook" for clinical education. The DRC also serves as a laboratory for Medical
Informatics students, as they learn to build data and systems in support of healthcare
We are now seeing more researchers take advantage of our services, as we
help them build, manage, and host specialized databases for research studies, and walk them
through the process of data access approval. Behind the scenes we continue to offer system
integration services and database hosting to core ITS and HSC application developers.
