MCW Joins Multi-State Network to Share Electronic Medical Record Data for Research
MCW is one of 10 medical centers joining to create the Greater Plains Collaborative, a multi-state network that will build a data set from electronic medical records that will be used to contribute to new research in the fields of breast cancer, obesity and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Nearly $500,000 of the grant will go to the Clinical and Translational Science Institute’s biomedical informatics team at MCW to establish the process, methods and system for sharing information in collaboration with the grant partners. Marshfield Clinic and UW-Madison also joined the collaborative.
