We are in the unique position of being able to make available de-identified, quality EHR data that includes patient-level information on Chicago-area demographics and disease conditions. Incorporating patient advocate expertise, we are excited to help researchers and community members access the data they need to ultimately drive advancements in public health and improvements in patient outcomes.

The Homelessness Project at the scale realized would not have been possible without the CAPriCORN infrastructure. The infrastructure provided working relationships between major healthcare institutions in the city of Chicago, a standardized data model for efficient extraction and linkage, a process for performing de-identified data linkage, and an honest broker to link data without the possibility of re-identification.
