The Regenstrief Data Services (RDS) is a group that leverages decades of experience in research and clinical informatics. With a solid portfolio of services, products and infrastructure, we can help health and biomedical researchers in their quests to find answers to important scientific questions and innovative solutions for health promotion and healthcare.

Our analysts and engineers can create customized datasets from records on millions of patients, match information from disparate data sources, build prototype applications to answer research questions, provide guidance on data usage and expertise in study planning, manage REDCap databases, deliver data for training and validation of machine learning algorithms, and much more. Regenstrief Data Services provides access for research to the Indiana Network for Patient Care (INPC), managed by Indiana Health Information Exchange, which contains 13 billion data elements from more than 100 hospital systems and tens of thousands of providers across the state of Indiana. Regenstrief also collaborates with Indiana CTSI to provide data from regional and national data network collaborations and the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center to provide cancer-related data. We at Regenstrief Data Services continue to develop new tools, data sources and capabilities to make data more accessible to address research questions and improve health and wellbeing.
