Health Sciences South Carolina, a biomedical research collaborative, has launched a state clinical data warehouse.

The warehouse starts with data from the Medical University of South Carolina, Greenville Hospital System, and Palmetto Health, totaling 25 million records on 3.2 million patients. Spartanburg Regional Health System will contribute data in 2014, and Health Sciences South Carolina expects all members to eventually contribute.

The warehouse will support biomedical researchers in conducting patient-centered outcomes research and comparative effectiveness studies across a broad and aggregated patient population.

Bioinformatics technology for the warehouse came from MUSC, the University of South Carolina developed the software and Clemson University hosts and secures the site. The volume of available data will enable studying rare conditions such as Sickle Cell, as well as conducting research on more common ailments. More information is available at healthsciencessc.org.
