YCCI is providing input to the School of Medicine and Yale New-Haven Hospital on building and integrating a strong informatics infrastructure for patient care and clinical research. Its components include:
- A new Electronic Medical Record system – contracted to EPIC
- Clinical Data Repository
- Clinical Trial Management System – contracted to OnCore
- Informatics support for genomics and proteomics
- Yale Biomedical Supercomputer
YCCI biomedical informatics activities are coordinated by the Yale Center for Medical Informatics (YCM), which offers a full range of consultation and support services to provide clinical researchers and their staff with the tools necessary to enter, maintain, and retrieve clinical research data.
YCMI and Yale’s Keck Biotechnology Laboratory support high-throughput genomic and proteomic research. Major initiatives include the Yale Microarray Database to store and analyze data from microarray studies of gene expression, the Yale Protein Expression Database to support mass spectrometry-based proteomics research, and the Yale High-Throughput Sequencing Database to support high-throughput sequencing studies.
