For Grant submissions

i2b2 is a cohort discovery tool that provides a self-service way for researchers to query the Carolina Data Warehouse for Health (CDW-H), a central data repository containing clinical, research, and administrative data sourced from the UNC Health Care System. Researchers have the ability to apply criteria for patient demographics, encounter information, ICD-9 diagnoses, ICD-9/CPT/HCPCS procedure codes, vitals, laboratory results, and medications. In response to a query, i2b2 returns the number of patients matching the search criteria. No patient identifiers or clinical data are revealed in the result set. The i2b2 instance at the University of North Carolina is supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), National Institutes of Health, through Grant Award Number UL1TR001111.
