Abel N. Kho, and John P. Cashy, Northwestern University; Bala N. Hota, Cook County Health and Hospital Systems; Shannon A. Sims, Rush University; Brad A. Malin, Vanderbilt University; William L. Galanter, MD, University of Illinois

The talk covered a number of topics, including program design, anonymizing records,  Institutional Review Board approvals, and data extractions (diagnoses, medications, and laboratory tests for all patients seen at participating institutions).

Today we also published some new data that came out of their work— diabetes rates by zip code from 2006 – 2010. Stay tuned for more data and an updated user interface on the Chicago Health Atlas in the weeks to come.
