08/24/2022 - Enterprise Data Fabric and the Impact on a Digital Transformation of Life Sciences

Data Fabric is a hot topic buzzword today. We think of Data Fabric as the way of creating an abstraction from the underlying technology. Allowing the data to be exposed at the top level as business objects that are semantically related. This can be thought of as a weaving together of data from internal silos and external sources that creates a network of information to power the business’ applications, AI, and analytics.

08/22/2022 - Improving data quality in clinical research informatics tools

In this 2022 case study by AbuHalimeh, de-identified data quality dimensions (DDQD) in two real-life clinical systems are examined to better understand discrepancies and requirements for their correction in order to improve data quality for clinical researchers. After a brief introduction to the topic of clinical informatics and data quality, AbuHalimeh presents a case study using patient count data from a TranSMART Foundation i2b2 and Epic SlicerDicer system of "a healthcare organization that wanted to have the ability to ingest other sources of research-specific data." After discussing the methodology and results, the author proposes a series of eight steps to improve data quality generated from de-identified system." Those steps "together form guidelines for a methodology of manual and automated procedures and tools used to manage data quality and data governance in a multifaceted, diverse information environment such as healthcare organizations, as well as to enhance data quality among data housed in de-identified data systems," the author concludes.
