Center for Quantitative Health

The aim of the Center for Qualitative Health is to increase the ability of investigators to generate and use emerging informatics technology for research by:

  • Teaching about existing tools using electronic health records
  • Building new tools (i.e. CQH Mart, CAT – Collaboration Acceleration Tool)
  • Helping to generate pilot data and text to power grants

Consultations

The Center for Quantitative Health (CQH) facilitates investigations drawing on large clinical databases, most notably large-scale electronic health records (EHR). CQH’s Consultation Services include:

  • Assisting investigators to plan and refine investigations making use of large clinical datasets;
  • Assisting investigators to plan and refine investigations making use of large clinical datasets;
  • Assisting investigators prepare materials describing investigations of large clinical data sets for submission to IRB or other regulatory review;
  • Assisting investigators generate pilot data to motivate funding applications, and for incorporation in publications;
  • Developing tools to allow researchers to address questions which would otherwise be difficult to study in large data sets;
  • Assisting investigators access and integrate appropriate large data sets;
  • Assisting investigators develop decision support tools with the results of research utilizing large clinical data sets.
