Clinical Informatics & Clinical Research Informatics Consultations

Request This Service »


When providing healthcare services to patients, healthcare workers must retrieve previous information and document new information. Clinical informatics is the study of methods to improve this information workflow, including the capture and management of clinical information and the engineering of clinical decision support systems. Clinical research informatics is the use of informatics to enable the generation of new information about health and disease.

We provide consultations in the following domains: 

Clinical data collection to support clinical trials

  • Patient cohort identification

Secondary use of clinical data

  • Patient cohort data management and storage
  • Patient data de-identification
  • Data transformation and pre-processing

Application of machine learning and statistical tools
