RIC Organizational Changes

As of Sep 2023, the Research Informatics Center is now known as Research Technology Data Services and is part of Research Technology Engineering Services and the larger Technology and Digital Solutions (TDS) team. A more comprehensive update is pending.

Helping to Advance Data-Driven Clinical Research

We offer a consultation service to Stanford University and Stanford Medicine researchers on topics related to clinical data access for research purposes. Consultants review the clinical data needs of your research project and provide advice on requesting IRB and Privacy Office approval to obtain clinical data from the Clinical Data Warehouse. Then we offer options for clinical data abstraction, reporting, and storage to meet your research needs.

When to Contact Us

We encourage researchers to contact us as early as possible in the design phase of a research project and, preferably, well in advance of IRB submission.

Service Costs

Up to one hour of free consultation is subsidized by the Stanford School of Medicine Dean’s Office. Custom data extracts for research are offered on a fee-for-service basis.
