•  Case report form design
•  Statistical analysis
•  Close collaboration with investigators and data management/extraction services

Clinical data extraction:
•  Leveraging Emory’s IRB-approved Honest Broker service to extract data in a compliant manner
•  Coordination of data requests
•  Requirement definition and translation to appropriate queries
•  Proper data stewardship
•  Integration of data from multiple sources
•  Extraction of data in a usable format

Biomedical informatics:
•  Opportunities to establish innovative techniques for algorithm development
•  Biomedical informatics analysis

Initially, requests will be reviewed to determine if existing campus resources can be leveraged. The Department of Medicine’s Data Request Committee will then assess the following criteria: 1) relevance to the department’s strategic agenda and/or research initiatives; 2) estimated effort required; 3) impact/trajectory; and 4) ability and commitment to securing additional funding (as needed). Preference is given to new investigators.

DAB Core personnel include a senior data manager, a biostatistics faculty member, a data analyst, and a senior biostatistician.
