On behalf of Christopher Chute, MD, DrPH, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Chair of the CRISP Research Subcommittee, you are invited to the first CRISP-Enabled Research Symposium.

The Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) is the not-for-profit state-designated Health Information Exchange (HIE) for Maryland and also serves the District of Columbia, West Virginia, and the Mid-Atlantic region. CRISP provides a growing assortment of high-volume clinical data exchange services through a collaboration with healthcare stakeholders throughout the region. Every week, CRISP delivers millions of clinical documents, lab reports, clinical encounter notifications, imaging studies, and other clinical data to providers, hospitals, long-term and post-acute care facilities and others.

In 2016, CRISP received state regulatory approval to offer access to data services to clinical researchers under specific approved use cases through a data request process. The CRISP Research Initiative is now supporting more than a dozen studies and our supported researchers would like to share with you some of their experiences.

If you are a researcher who does clinical studies on consented patients and need to follow them over time, CRISP can provide a cost-effective and more comprehensive approach to understanding a patient’s experience in the healthcare system versus relying on research subject recall, chart requests, or other traditional methods. CRISP also provides access to certain HIPAA safe harbor data sets with patient identification removed – such as the case mix data available through the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC).

Come and learn about how the program works and how it supports various clinical studies. We will also discuss future directions for CRISP’s support of clinical research and you will have an opportunity to provide input on where we go from here. Please register so we know you plan to attend. Following the 90-minute symposium, we will have a reception to allow the conversation to continue.

Thursday, March 14th, 2019
