New Scholarship Program for EHR Data Extraction Services


The demand for electronic health record (EHR) data for clinical and health services research continues to increase at UCSF.  In addition to increasing our staffing to support this demand, we are also launching new processes for data access.  We will now support a new scholarship program to cover the first 8 hours of EHR data extraction for researchers that need it (e.g., faculty or trainee with limited funding, pilot research project prior to a funded grant). This means that Academic Research Systems (ARS) will no longer automatically provide 8 free hours of data extraction per fiscal year per PI.  CTSI will continue to provide a first free hour of consultation for all projects. 

The scholarship fund application is brief, and will be available if needed through our usual data extraction request process.
