Standard Data Delivery
Our Data Delivery Team will work with you to develop a custom data extract to support research or quality improvement initiatives. By working with a data analyst, you can access pretty much any discrete data element in the electronic medical record or in any of our various external data sources.
Our analysts can assist you to:
Access the data needed for your project from the Compass Data Warehouse, which includes data from UCHealth electronic medical records, UCHealth Cancer Registry data, Children's Hospital Colorado electronic medical records, CIVHC's All Payor Claims Data, geospatial information for the patient address, US census data, Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine's Biobank genomic data, Oncore, and ClinImmune data.
Identify the regulatory requirements for your data request
Help identify additional data that may be needed for your project
Provide introductions and guidance for other groups on campus which support research
Deliver your data to a HIPAA-secure environment for you to access
To get started on a custom data extract project, please complete and submit the Compass Data Request Questionnaire.
Compass can act as an honest broker by maintaining a mapping between a patient's identifying information and arbitrary IDs, to help facilitate linking data across data sources while reducing privacy risk.
Compass can provide custom data extracts in three different levels of sensitivity:
De-Identified Data Set. Compass can provide investigators with data de-identified via the Safe Harbor Method.
We will need a copy of the Compass De-Identified Data Access Agreement
Limited Data Set. Compass can provide data to an investigator in a Limited Data Set format as defined by the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
We will need your IRB Approval, and approval from the Compass Security and Compliance Committee. Contact us to learn more about this process. (this data use agreement is only required if data is leaving the four partner institutions)
PHI Data Set. Compass can provide data to an investigator that contains the minimum data necessary, including PHI data elements, as allowed by HIPAA.
We will need your IRB Approval and approval from the Compass Security and Compliance Committee. Contact us to learn more about this process.
Data requests are prioritized according to certain guidelines. You can review these guidelines on the Project Prioritization page.
