UMB Research HARBOR Data Warehouse: A UMB ICTR-supported resource, the Data Warehouse consists of clinical and investigational data collected from a variety of data sources from University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS), Translational Genomics Lab (TGL), COMmunity Partners Advancing Science System (COMPASS), and iPatient. Currently, the main data source is the Clinical Data Repository (CDR), which contains data from UMMC and other UMMS clinical sites. Additional data sources will be integrated in the HARBOR over time.
Other UMB Campus Shared Data Resources

Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) Data for UMB Researchers: Research data are available through Maryland's CRISP health information exchange. For more information, please visit the CRISP website. Questions can be directed to email@example.com.
Safety, Clinical Outcomes, Research, and Effectiveness (SCORE) Program: Anesthesiology has been a pioneer in patient safety since the late 1970s and remains a leader in the field through its partnership with the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ Anesthesia Quality Institute and the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation. The Department of Anesthesiology maintains the Anesthesia Clinical Registry (ACR), a data warehouse that is used for research and operational purposes. Collaborators on research and quality improvement projects from within the department, the School of Medicine, and the University of Maryland Medical System work closely with SCORE's ACR team to maximize use of this rich data resource while adhering to high standards of data practice and research ethics. Potential collaborators should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Shock, Trauma, and Anesthesiology Research Organized Research Center (STAR-ORC) is a world-class, multidisciplinary research and educational center focusing on brain injuries, critical care and organ support, resuscitation, surgical outcomes, patient safety, and injury prevention. It is the first research center in the nation dedicated exclusively to the study of trauma, its complications, and its prevention.
The UMB Health Sciences and Human Services Library has a list of shared data sources, such as Dryad and the NIH Data Sharing Repositories.
