The Data Commons is a repository that collects patient data from all across Johns Hopkins Medicine. You can think of it as an enterprise data warehouse or data lake.
It currently pulls data from our Electronic Medical Record system, Vendor Neutral Archives (radiology), Hospital Physiological Monitoring, and several research databases (REDcap, Access, SQL and others). We plan to add other sources over time. The data from all those sources is cross-linked and joined into a very wide patient-focused data set.
Subsets of data from the Data Commons can be extracted for your use in research or in patient quality and safety improvement. You can use the Data Catalog to look for tables an * of data you can request.
If you have an approved IRB protocol, you can request a subset of data from the Data Commons. That subset is delivered to you in a Data Projection. Your Data Projection will include a read-only database that houses your IRB-approved data, and a writeable database.
You can access your Data Projection as well as a suite of Analytical Tools through the SAFE Desktop.
You can access your data and the Data Catalog through the SAFE Desktop.
The SAFE Desktop comes installed with several tools for exploration and analysis.
