Infrastructure Services

Research IT builds and supports centralized infrastucture that Stanford biomedical research and clinical community uses. The marquee infrastucture services include:

  1. STARR (previously known as STRIDE) Data Warehouse: This is Stanford's clinical data warehouse and currently has live Epic data from Stanford Health Care (SHC) and Stanford Children's Hospital (aka Lucile Packard Chidren's Hospital, SCH or LPCH). In the coming years, STARR will expand to include 100% of the imaging data from Hospital PACSsystems as well as genomic data from the Clinical Genomics Service. (more)
  2. CHOIR: Research IT, in collaboration with Prof Sean Mackey, Chief of Division of Pain Medicine, has developed the Collaborative Health Outcomes Information System (CHOIR). This registry is available to use at other Clinics, at Stanford and elsewhere. (more)
  3. mHealth Platform: Stanford Medicine has created a HIPAA-compliant platform to support research applications built on smartphones. This resource, designed and built in collaboration with IRT, Research IT and the MyHeart Counts team, is available for faculty who want to do research involving mobile devices. (more)
  4. REDCap: REsearch Data Capture (REDCap) is a secure, reliable, versatile and feature-rich HIPAA compliant database for storing your valuable research study data. It is available to all Stanford researchers. (more)

Research Computing & Storage

Aside from above infrastructure services, Research IT provides integrated software services including application hosting and data backup. For general purpose research use, we recommend that researcher work directly with suitable facilities and providers at Stanford.
