Cerner Health Facts

CBMI is now able to provide UTHSC researchers and affiliates access to the CERNER Health Facts® (HF) database. Since 2000, CERNER Health Facts® database has captured and stored de-identified, longitudinal electronic health record (EHR) patient data, aggregated and organized to facilitate analyses and reporting – it currently contains data on almost 50 million patients and almost 300 million encounters. The de-identified database includes data on patient demographics, encounters, diagnoses, prescriptions, procedures, laboratory tests, locations of services/patients (e.g., clinic, ED, ICU, etc.) and hospital information, and billing. HF can be used to track a drugs or device’s usage across diagnoses and major procedures, as well as by geographic region and hospital type, or researchers can use it to study practice patterns, treatments, and outcomes.
