LIFT Forum logoPlease join us on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 for the Library and Information Technology Forum. This month features Joyce Mitchell, Associate Vice President for Academic Health IT, talking about FURTHeR: Searching the University’s Data Resources for Clinical Cohorts.  Please join us in the Spencer F. and Cleone P. Eccles Health Sciences Education Building, Room 1730 at 12:30-1:30 p.m. for this program.

Program Description:  The FURTHeR system has been developed to assist the research community with questions related to finding clinical cohorts for research purposes. This system is available to anyone with a University ID, is approved by the Institutional Review Board, and makes de-identified data available from your desktop via a web link. More data sources will become available as the system is expanded. Come and see if it helps you with your questions.


Presenter: Joyce Mitchell is the Associate Vice President for Academic Health IT. Faculty and staff from the Academic Health IT office have been working with their counterparts at ITS and the Utah Population Database (UPDB) to make this system possible. Joyce Mitchell is also a Professor and Chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics in the School of Medicine.
