Facility Details

The Electronic Phenotyping Resource (EPR) is a shared resource of the Abramson Cancer Center dedicated to unlocking the power of electronic health records for clinical and translational research in cancer care. Electronic phenotyping involves querying electronic health record systems (EHRs) and other clinical information systems and databases to identify patients who meet a specific set of clinical characteristics. It can be used to support a variety of clinical and translational research pursuits, such as hypothesis generation, retrospective data gathering and hypothesis testing, research planning and grant preparation, subject recruitment for prospective clinical trials, and development of prospective research registries. The EPR provides consultative and technical services that leverage the oncology informatics team's deep expertise in clinical research informatics, intimate knowledge of the clinical information systems and workflows in use throughout the Penn Medicine Cancer Service Line, and unique and powerful "real world" data assets.
