Tufts CTSI Supports Researchers' Access to Clinical Data


Need access to electronic health record (EHR) data? This fall, PCORnet, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network, is launching an initiative called Front Door, which will allow researchers and other investigators, patient groups, health care organizations, clinicians and clinician groups, government, industry scientists, and sponsors to submit requests for data and for network collaboration.

Thomas Concannon, PhD, Tufts CTSI's Director of Stakeholder and Community Engagement, and John Wong, MD, Director of Comparative Effectiveness Research, can help Tufts researchers gain access to PCORnet's EHR data from up to 185 hospital systems and community health centers through their involvement with the Chicago Area Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Network (CAPriCORN), one of 11 Clinical Data Research Networks (CDRNs) that make up PCORnet. PCORnet also sponsors 18 patient registries (known as Patient Powered Research Networks) that focus on specific clinical conditions or populations such as arthritis, cardovascular disease, and children's health.

For more information on PCORnet, CAPriCORN, and accessing EHR data, please submit a request for a PCORI consultation.

What is Translational Science?

What is translation, and why is it important? The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) defines translation as "the process of turning observations in the laboratory, clinic, and community into interventions that improve the health of individuals and populations - from diagnostics and therapeutics to medical procedures and behavioral interventions."

Tufts CTSI focuses on translating research into impact on health. For us, translational science: 
  • Connects biomedical and clinical studies to implementation in clinical practice, in communities, and into health policy, with the constant objective of having an impact on health.
  • Is patient- and population-oriented, so the public gets a significant return on investment.
