UR CTSI Offers New Cohort Discovery Tool

example TriNetX graph showing potential clinical trial participants by demographics

The new tool, called TriNetX, provides URMC researchers with access to longitudinal clinical data in near-real-time and uses state-of-the-art analytics to identify potential study participants based on specific study criteria. With TriNetX, researchers can search 1.5 million electronic medical records from across UR Medicine. This user-friendly tool can show researchers how many patients meet their study’s criteria and can help them tweak their inclusion and exclusion criteria to ensure they capture a large enough pool of patients.
