Research Opportunities Using the PaTH Network
The PaTH Network is a DBMI-led clinical data research network (CDRN) within the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). This project is building a network of EMR data from six institutions (Temple University, UPMC, Penn State University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Utah, and Geisinger Health System) covering roughly 11 million patients. This smaller network, in turn, is being connected to a national network organized by PCORI covering 90 million patients. This talk will introduce the PaTH Network, its goals, and the overarching goals of PCORI.
The presentation will focus on research opportunities for DBMI faculty and students. The PaTH Network covers a wide range of biomedical research topics (patient reported outcomes, NLP, data quality, etc.). Any number of these topics can be leveraged for other funding opportunities or for projects within the DBMI training program.
