Clinical Ancillary System Data

Research IT partners with the Research Informatics Center (RIC) to bring clinical ancillary data not in Epic to the Stanford Medicine research community. The current status of clinical ancillary data availability for research is summarized below.

Clinical Ancillary

Adult (SHC)

Childrens' (SCH)

Radiology

Radiology This is a shared service used by both hospitals. Radiology images are stored in DICOM format. The current PACS system since 2019 is Sectra; historical data comes from the GE PACS.

To request Radiology DICOM files, follow this process with the RIC.

We have Radiology DICOM from the year 2000 through the present day.

The following modalities are available for bulk download for both Adult and Children: CT, MRI, XRay, Mammo, Ultrasound, Angio, Presentation State.

 
Vital Sign Bedside Monitors

Vitals As of mid 2020, Research IT is actively working with Packard to obtain Philips bedside monitor waveform data for research. We already have some data on hand and can likely assist you.

To request pediatric bedside monitor waveform files, please open a consultation request.

Adult vital-sign monitor data not currently in STARR.

If interested, please open a consultation request.

Pediatric historical vital sign data, both numeric and waveform, is available from 2007- 2020.
 
Clinical Photos from the Epic "Blob Server"

Clinical Photo Clinical photos can be attached to a patient encounter using Epic tools such as a phone app called Haiku and the patient-facing MyHealth portal.

To request adult clinical photos, please open a consultation request.

We have on hand all photos from 2013 to 2020 tagged as "Photo Derm" and can pull photos with other tags upon request.

Pediatric clinical photos are not currently in STARR.

If interested, please open a consultation request.

 
Echocardiogram

Echo An echocardiogram, cardiac echo or simply an echo, is an ultrasound of the heart. Echocardiography uses standard two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and Doppler ultrasound to create DICOM images of the heart.

To request adult Echo data files, please open a consultation request.

XCelera is the current system at SHC. We have a complete research copy of measurement and interpreted data from the DICOM images up to April 2020. We do not currently have any DICOM files.

Pediatric Echo not currently in STARR.

If interested, please open a consultation request.

 
Electrocardiogram aka ECG/EKG

ECG As of Sept 2020, Research IT has a complete copy of the SHC iECG database, including the TraceMasterVue data and the newer iECG data captured on ISCV.

To request adult ECG waveform files, please open a consultation request.

Philips ISCV is the current system at SHC.

We have historical (2013 - 2018) data from Tracemaster Vue as well as current data from iSCV from 2019-Aug 2020.

Pediatric ECG not currently in STARR.

If interested, please open a consultation request.

 
Electroencephalogram aka EEG

EEG As of mid 2020, Research IT is actively working with Stanford Childrens to obtain EEG waveform data for research. We anticipate being able to deliver this data to researchers by year end 2020.

To request EEG waveform files, please open a consultation request.

Adult EEG data not currently in STARR.

If interested, please open a consultation request.

We are working on acquiring pediatric historical EEG data from Natus / Nihon Kohden; anticipated in late 2020.

Nihon Kohden data starts in October 2013 and Natus data starts November 2019.

Both systems are in active use.

 
Cancer Related Clinical Ancillaries

Cancer STARR partners with the Stanford Cancer Institute Research Database (SCIRDB) program to obtain clinical ancillary data for cancer research.

To request cancer-related clinical ancillary data, please open a consultation request.

The SCIRDB has both pediatric and adult cancer patient data from ARIA, Powerpath, and the Cancer Tumor Registry.

ARIA is operated by Radiology, which is a shared hospital service, and Powerpath is operated by Pathology, also a shared hospital service.

The two tumor registries are separate but both are available to the SCIRDB.
