19 Aug Leaf Hands-On Workshop: November
Leaf is a self-service tool which provides UW investigators with a user friendly interface for querying the electronic health system records within UW Medicine. Due to its direct access to the university health data system, Leaf is currently only available to investigators and research teams affiliated with the University of Washington Medicine Department who have an AMC account.
If you currently have AMC System access and are using Leaf, join us for this hands on workshop. Bring your ideas, example cases, and problem queries along with your own laptop. We’ll explore ways to improve your search results!
Tip: Sign up for Leaf access before the workshop
By the end of this session, you will be able to:
- Perform more sophisticated queries in Leaf
- Observe the work and challenges of your colleagues also using Leaf
- Know where to go when you need help with Leaf
