Data for Research
UMB ICTR-Supported Data Resources
UMB Research HARBOR Data Warehouse: 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.
Pharmaceutical Health Services Research (PHSR) Community Database Program: The UM School of Pharmacy's PHSR Center maintains the Community Database Program. The Community Database Program oversees several large data sets stored at Pharmaceutical Research Computing (PRC) center. Data sets are available to UMB faculty members for research and publications. Contact 410-706-5315 or email@example.com. Data sets include:
- Medicare Chronic Conditions Warehouse (CCW) 5% Sample
- Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS)
- IMS Health Pharmetrics Plus 10% Sample
These services may be eligible for ICTR support. Please email ICTR-Navigator@umaryland.edu if you are interested in the services above.
Other UMB Campus Data Sources
The UMB Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) introduced the UMB Data Catalog in 2018. UMB is one of several academic health science libraries currently participating in the Data Catalog Collaboration Project (DCCP) to increase data sharing. The catalog is not a repository to store datasets; it describes them. The UMB Data Catalog is a searchable and browsable collection of records describing datasets created by or used by UMB researchers. Do you want to increase the visibility of your data and data re-use? Consider adding information about it to the UMB Data Catalog. Datasets are discoverable through a search in the UMB Data Catalog, Google's Dataset Search (beta) and Google. Use the link to your dataset record in articles, CVs, and your web profile. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
The UMB Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) has a list of shared data sources, UMB Research Harbor, Dryad, HathiTrust Digital Library, ISA Commons, NIH Data Sharing Repositories, UK Data Archive.
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.
