PCORnet® data are real-world data, and our Network is an expert at delivering high-quality results and accelerated timelines to improve lives.
Our data draws from an unparalleled number of electronic health records (EHRs) with growing links to patient-reported and health plan data to create a powerful, standard data set that facilitates large-scale, multi-site research.
Privacy is Paramount
PCORnet’s distributed Network architecture enables secure data analysis and transfer while protecting patient privacy.
The Common Data Model, developed by PCORnet, is a key component of our research infrastructure and central to our work. PCORnet’s Common Data Model standardizes millions of data points from a variety of clinical information systems into an innovative common format that can be used for specified research projects.
