    Cerner, a global provider of health care information technology, donated to OSUCHSI the use of the Cerner Health Facts database, a comprehensive source of de-identified real-world data that is a collected by-product of patient care. In congruence with Cerner’s mission to contribute to the systemic improvement of health care delivery and the health of communities, CHSI analyzes Health Facts. It is a HIPAA compliant database collected from participating clinical facilities starting in 2000. It is the industry’s only data source that uses a comprehensive clinical record with pharmacy, laboratory, admission and billing data that is time-stamped and sequenced. The data source is identified to region. The areas where the data can give insight are boundless and we work to harness this strength for our own mission.
