As part of the ongoing strategic relationship between UC and OptumLabs, OptumLabs will provide seven UC research project teams with OptumLabs-funded access (aka: "research credits") to its data warehouse. OptumLabs is an open, collaborative center for research and innovation focused on improving patient care and value. The database includes de-identified plan enrollment information, medical and pharmacy claims, and lab results integrated across care settings and longitudinally linked at the patient level. Where available, the claims data are also linked to clinical data derived from EHRs.

OptumLabs will call for proposals beginning January 8, 2018. Principal Investigators or Co-PIs at all 10 UC campuses are eligible on proposals.
