Informatics Services

We aim at implementing a foundational informatics architecture to catalyze research guided by the findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) framework. The overall goal is to improve access to innovative, high quality computational and data resources and enhance partnerships with informatics experts. Implementation of these aims will expand the MSHS informatics ecosystem and data science educational endeavors as well as enhance collaboration with the national community to accelerate informatics innovation across the translational spectrum and improve health outcomes.

The Center provides the processes and infrastructure to facilitate the collection, storage and distribution of patient-centered data to researchers including EHR, cancer registry, biorepository, radiology, pathology, and billing data as well as linkages to sequencing data.
