“Unlocking Real World Data Buried in the EHR: The EMERSE Experience at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals of Cleveland”
The Electronic Medical Record Search Engine (EMERSE) was installed at University Hospitals of Cleveland (UH) in 2021 by the Cleveland Institute for Computational Biology (CICB), a collaboration between Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) and UH. At present, EMERSE contains indexed medical notes from 2018 through present for over 1.7 million UH patients. This presentation will discuss the strategies we employed to successfully install EMERSE, the lessons-learned in rolling out EMERSE to research and operational teams, some research success stories since EMERSE adoption, and the additional tools we have developed as add-ons to the EMERSE application that we use internally for tracking EMERSE metrics and plan to share with the broader EMERSE community.
