Automated Claims and Automated Medical Record Databases (ACARD)
ACARD (Automated Claims and Medical Record Databases) is a core in the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB) created to foster epidemiologic research into therapeutics, using large population-based automated claims databases (Medicaid / Medicare) and medical records databases (GPRD™ and THIN), and an adverse event reporting system (AERS) database.
The Penn Medicine BioBank supports researchers by providing centralized access to a large number of annotated blood and tissue samples. This bank of samples and linked data will be an invaluable resource to the Penn Medicine basic, translational, and clinical research communities.
The ITMAT Bioinformatics Facility provide project based bioinformatics support for ITMAT translational researchers. Our focus has been on providing the computational infrastructure and programming support needed to conduct high-throughput proteomics experiments. We also support other genomics high-throughput technologies to a lesser extent. See the resources page for more information on our projects and what we have to offer.
Center for Biomedical Informatics in Translation (BIIT)
BIIT functions as a virtual ITMAT Center, facilitating "best practices" and access to research IS and IT resources across Penn Medicine and CHOP and has, as its primary focus, the end user amongst the 800 plus members of the institute.
Community Outreach Using Health System Informatics (COHSI)
COHSI integrates outpatient, inpatient, and administrative databases, as well as an infrastructure of programmers and analysts with expertise accessing health system data.
Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics at CHoP
The Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics (DBHi) resides in The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia as the home for the development of innovative solutions to healthcare's immediate and long-term informatics needs. We provide informatics-focused services, applications, and educational programs to Children's Hospital clinicians and researchers and seek to transform their craft with high-impact, low-cost solutions.
