What resources do you provide?
- Payer database of a large commercial health insurance company

- R packages to implement standard workflows
- Large scale analytic database / data mining platforms (SciDB, Apache Spark, etc.)
How can I use these resources?
Getting started is easy. You will be asked to fill out a Healthcare Data Science Program Access Request describing your team and what you’d like to do with the data, and we’ll contact you shortly. Applications are reviewed by program leadership on a monthly basis. Because we have many researchers in the HMS community who are working with us, we maintain an active roster of teams and their respective projects.
If your project is approved, you will be required to sign a data use agreement that outlines the terms, conditions and purposes related to your access to the HDS resources.
