The DCDR is a de-identified data repository that contains a subset of data from various UW Medicine clinical systems. Please see the data dictionary page for details about the data elements contained in the DCDR.
The DCDR is a cohort identification/feasibility estimation tool. The interface to the DCDR is a secure web-based query tool (currently powered by i2b2) that allows researchers to individually query the data.
The tool provides a graphical query interface that allows the definition of criteria and returns an aggregate count or a summary of the patients who meet the criteria. An example query in this interface would be of the form: “Provide me a count of patients 18-34 with a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, who were discharged live within the past six months.”
