RDR i2b2


The Ohio State University Research Data Repository (RDR) is an IRB-approved database populated with a coded-limited dataset sourced from OSU Wexner Medical Center Electronic Health Record via the Information Warehouse. Application level access to the RDR is implemented via the Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside (i2b2) software product developed at the Partners Healthcare System which has been adopted by over 80 Academic Health Centers across the country. The RDR provides OSU researchers the ability to perform self-service cohort discovery for research purposes in order to support hypothesis generation, feasibility analysis, and study population enrollment reports. The RDR is available for use by Ohio State biomedical research community members (faculty and staff) affiliated with the OSU Wexner Medical Center and/or one of the seven OSU health sciences colleges: Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Veterinary Medicine.


To review scheduled training dates and register for a session please visit the OSU BuckeyeLearn system.

Note: RDR access is limited to faculty and staff (not students) affiliated with the OSU Wexner Medical Center and/or health sciences colleges.
