Collaborative Data Services

Shared Resources

The Collaborative Data Services Core (CDSC) is a unique shared resource that facilitates MCC member use of patient-reported clinical, tumor, and biospecimen data in support of innovative research across all research programs. The CDSC supports members with three primary services: consultation, data provisioning, and study-specific medical record abstraction. The specific aims that drive the CDSC are to:

1) Promote and facilitate cutting-edge translational research by providing members access to high-quality discrete patient-level data linked within MCC’s enterprise-wide data warehouse and cost-efficient collection of clinical data from patient medical records;

2) Assist investigators at the early stages of developing research projects with consultations on study data access and project feasibility through provisioning of aggregate count data from the MCC HRI data warehouse;

3) Promote data access and data provisioning by providing individual or small group training, workshops, and data concierge training.
