FROM NUGGETS TO INGOTS: EXPLORATION OF MSKs DATA GOLD MINE

MSK has been named once again among the "Most Wired" of US medical centers - in part because of the Institutional Data Base (IDB). The IDB contains many levels of detail on "everything that goes on here" going back 5, 10, 20 years and more. This presentation will report on exploring the "gold" to be found in IDB tables. These result from collaborative projects over the past year and a half with various groups in Hospital Administration, and are currently at different stages of extraction, refinement, amalgamation and molding. Partners sought. Samples may be available pending approval.
