Data Warehouse Information for Researchers

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.

Each data source has its own individual organization and content. The Data Catalog describes the organization and content available in each data source. The Data Catalog can help you learn what information is available to request, what it means and provide helpful hints about how to interpret the data.

These data have been collated and are maintained as a library to allow investigators request a broad scope of clinical, scientific, utilization, financial, and resource-availability information.

Data Warehouse usage requires UMB ID and password.
