Programmatic Theme: Clinical Research Informatics
In order to empower research into veteran health needs, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is piloting a national VA Data Commons to integrate clinical, genomic, imaging and other data from the country’s largest integrated health care system within a scalable compute infrastructure. This work will describe the principles used in its development as well as early results from that effort.
Learning Objective: Understand principles and metrics that can be used for design and evaluation of data commons platforms for research and development.
