UC Research eXchange (UC ReX) Workshop


This workshop will be taught by Dr. Douglas Bell, Associate Professor in General Internal Medicine and Leader of the Biomedical Informatics Program of UCLA CTSI.

Wednesday, November 13, 2013, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
UCLA Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library Classroom (12-077X CHS)

Are you doing clinical research? Could your work benefit from access to cohort counts based on de-identified data on

  • demographics
  • diagnosis data
  • commonly-ordered lab test results (starting Fall 2013)
  • anticoagulant medications (starting Fall 2013)

The University of California Research eXchange (UC-ReX) Data Explorer, is a secure online system designed to enable University of California (UC) clinical investigators to identify potential research study cohorts spanning the five UC medical centers. The Data Explorer allows investigators to conduct interactive searches of data derived from patient care activities at Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco. Search criteria can include demographics, diagnosis and procedure codes (ICD-9 and CPT), labs, and medications. The output of each query from the UC ReX Data Explorer is a numeric count of patients by site that match the criteria identified in the query. The numeric count helps investigators assess the feasibility of their study idea by identifying whether there are sufficient numbers of prospective subjects within the UC system.

The workshop is free but seating is limited. Please register to reserve a seat.

UC ReX is brought to you by the University of California Biomedical Research Accelerations, Integration and Development (UC BRAID) to facilitate integration of research programs, clinical informatics, technology, and resources across University of California campuses.
