Distributed Health Outcome Monitoring and Evaluation Using i2b2.

Academic Article


  • There is a pressing need for better tools to support comparative effectiveness research (CER) on a national scale. In addition, little is known about within-class outcome disparities for commonly used cardiovascular and diabetes medications. In this presentation, we will describe our experience implementing a new i2b2 cell, the Health Outcome Monitoring and Evaluation Cell (HOME), at 5 collaborating Clinical Translational Science Award sites (CTSAs) in the U.S. We will also describe the motivations to developing a common query framework, and findings related to the implementation and use of the HOME cell, to perform distributed CER queries. Our focus is on the assessment of race, gender, and location-based disparities in outcomes for patients treated with similar mediations for hypertension, dyslipidemias, and diabetes.
