The Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine (DAPM), in collaboration with CTSI and the UCLA Office of Health Informatics and Analytics (OHIA) has developed and maintains a Perioperative Data Warehouse (PDW). The PDW is a custom-built, SQL-based data warehouse that extracts key data from EPIC (UCLA's electronic medical record) and organizes it into a user-accessible format in a highly validated and structured way. This infrastructure has been peer reviewed as well as implemented at some partner institutions.
More information on the PDW as well as DAPM research activities can be found at the Division of Informatics at UCLA. Please contact us with any additional questions or for access to PDW documentation and instructional videos to understand the schema in DDR.
