The Informatics Consult is a pilot project under IRB protocol # 39709 to study the use of routinely collected data on millions of individuals for providing better care, as envisioned in the ‘Green Button’ paper by Christopher Longhurst, Robert Harrington, and Nigam Shah.
Given a specific case, the Informatics Consult provides a report with a descriptive summary of similar patients in Stanford’s clinical data warehouse, the common treatment choices made, and the observed outcomes after specific treatment choices.
If you are a Stanford clinician needing a consult, please e-mail email@example.com. Example reports are available upon request when you initiate a consult. For more information, watch one of the videos below.
