DCRI and SAS Open Data to Researchers

May 4, 2016

A collaboration between The Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) analytics, business intelligence and data management software and services provider SAS will give researchers access, analytics and data management tools to its database that includes 45 years of cardiovascular patient data collected by the Duke University Health System, including de-identified records for patients; data from more than 100,000 procedures; treatment histories, and more. The information can be used to test clinical hypotheses, develop clinical trial protocols and help researchers assess long-term outcomes and assess time trends.   The DCRI and SAS are constructing a data governance plan to ensure the reliability of the data sets and to process requests as efficiently as possible. Researchers can apply for access to the data sets at soar.dcri.org.   Read the full release here
