The University of California Biomedical Research Acceleration, Integration and Development (UC BRAID) is pleased to announce the launch of the UC Research eXchange (UC ReX) and the UC ReX Data Explorer tool. This system enables exploration of a combined population of over 12 million patients from medical center databases at UC Los Angeles, UC Irvine, UC Davis, UC San Diego, and UC San Francisco.
UC ReX Data Explorer gives researchers and quality specialists access to cohort counts derived from de-identified clinical data collected at the point of care to improve medical care and advance research.
UC ReX was initiated by UC BRAID in 2011 with a 5-year grant of $5 Million from the UC Office of the President (UCOP) and developed through a collaboration of the medical campuses and their Chief Information Officers and Clinical and Translational Award programs (CTSAs).
An important part of UC BRAID's mission is to improve UC collaborative research opportunities. UC ReX is a great example of how UC BRAID facilitates integration of research programs, clinical informatics, technology, and resources across University of California campuses.
