Clinical Research Informatics (CRI)

The CRI Program is a consultative service that helps researchers apply advanced informatics methods and resources to their research. All researchers have access to the BMC Clinical Data Warehouse (CDW)—a comprehensive repository of patient data receiving care at BMC and Boston HealthNet community health care centers—for analysis or trial recruitment. CRI is enhancing the integration of clinical care and research by expanding CDW capability through the i2b2 platform, creating a multi-dimensional system capable of supporting translational research at many levels.
