Mount Sinai Data Warehouse

Mount Sinai Data Warehouse (MSDW) provides data access for planning and executing clinical and translational research as well as for quality of care and process improvement initiatives.

MSDW collects and organizes clinical, financial and operational data derived from patient care processes of The Mount Sinai Hospital and Mount Sinai Doctors Faculty Practice. Data Warehouse contains detailed inpatient and outpatient data since 2003 from over 20 different Mount Sinai systems/applications for more than two million patients and over two billion facts.

MSDW is compliant with New York State and HIPAA regulations and with Mount Sinai PPHS and IRB policies regarding protection of human subjects and participation in research.

Researchers planning new studies or grant applications can utilize our online Cohort Query Tool (CQT) and quickly search the Data Warehouse to quantify eligible cohorts.

MSDW can help research studies by identifying the study population and by providing daily/weekly/monthly reports. In addition, MSDW can provide datamarts or smaller subsets of data to study cohorts.

The cost of data delivery for research studies is based on the effort required by the data warehouse team to analyze and generate the desired output. Consultations up to one hour are provided free of cost. Assistance with estimating Data Warehouse costs for grant application purposes is available upon request.
