The Regenstrief Institute Data Core has been a central resource for electronic healthcare data access for decades, serving both the Regenstrief Institute and Indiana University.

Under the leadership of Dr. Timothy Imler, MD, MS, Data Core provides services and resources through the CTSI Informatics and Data Analysis Core (CIDAC) to assist investigators with research utilizing the Indiana Network for Patient Care (INPC).

The Indiana CTSI and Regenstrief Institute cooperate to provide a portion of needed funding to support the data infrastructure to assist with developing grant proposals, feasibility assessments, and unfunded studies. Remaining Data Core expense is offset by awarded grants, contracts, and other external funding.

The Data Core serves as the research resource for all requests for data from the Indiana Network for Patient Care (INPC) and from other specialized sources. The INPC is a large regional health information exchange with more than 17 million unique patients over 30 years with both clinical data (e.g. labs, radiology), as well as billing data (e.g. government and commercial insurance). This resource is nearly unparalleled for clinical research around the world.

Services offered for Regenstrief and CTSI member investigators include:

  • feasibility preparatory to research
  • assistance with subject recruitment and management
  • access to subject descriptive clinical and demographic data
  • ability to study clinical outcomes
  • protocol compliance and guidance in regard to data security

Completeness of data varies across each INPC institution and approval to use individual institutions’ data may be required.
