EMERSE is a web-based query tool that allows you to search for 'free-text' in the de-identified 100+ million clinical notes. Once you have been granted access to UCSF de-identified data, you will automatically have access to EMERSE.  If you don't have access to the de-identified data for research yet, you must request and be granted this access first.

  • You must be on the UCSF Network / VPN to access EMERSE
