Integrated Data Repository

An integrated data repository (IDR) containing aggregations of clinical, biomedical, economic, administrative, and public health data are key components of an overall translational research infrastructure. But most available data repositories are designed using standard data warehouse architecture using a predefined data model, which does not facilitate many types of health research. In response to these shortcomings we have designed a schema and associated components which will facilitate the creation of an IDR by directly addressing the urgent need for terminology and ontology mapping in biomedical and translational sciences and give biomedical researchers the required tools to streamline and optimize their research. Specifically designed user interfaces will allow for standardized and easier data collection in the biomedical setting. The proposed system will dramatically lower the barrier to IDR development at biomedical research institutions to support biomedical and translational research, and will furthermore promote inter-institute data sharing and research collaboration.
