Clinical Research - TriNetX and Cosmos

Overview of Service

Drexel utilizes Data Repository Tools (TriNetX and Cosmos) to access HIPAA-defined limited data sets for research purposes. TriNetX eases cohort building with de-identified Drexel data and access to networked patient records. Cosmos provides access to millions of de-identified data records across participating Epic Electronic Medical Record (EMR) organizations, including Drexel.

Integrating sophistication with user-friendly features, the TriNetX Query Builder empowers researchers to effortlessly create precise cohorts. Navigate through their extensive term library to search and select the necessary codes and clinical concepts. Apply temporal logic, exclusions, and qualifications as needed. Set specific ranges, whether for patient ages or lab values, and filter by data source or country. With TriNetX, if you can describe it, you can create a query to retrieve de-identified patients matching your criteria within seconds. De-identified patients can be identified by IT upon IRB approval.

Cosmos combines billions of clinical data points in a way that forms a high quality, representative, and integrated data set that can be used to accomplish research goals and find rapid insights. It’s a research refinement tool where you can explore hunches, compare established assumptions with the large dataset in SlicerDicer, and gather additional or supporting context to the research you may already be conducting.
