    Clinical Data Research Networks (CDRNs) are groups of health care
    delivery organizations that have agreed to aggregate their clinical data
    to support clinical research. They enable the sharing of de-identified
    data and with appropriate authorizations can provide more detailed data
    sets. They can also facilitate finding research collaborators. CDRNs
    allow researchers who use them to generalize findings across large
    patient/stakeholder populations. Data from CDRNs can be used for
    feasibility queries, observational and interventional studies.
    Participation in CDRNs positions Duke to participate in major NIH studies
    like the Precision Medicine Initiative.

    Come hear how Duke's participation in CDRNs may be useful for social
    science researchers.
