The Data Trust

The OneFlorida Data Trust’s repository of statewide health-care data is regularly updated with the inclusion of new partners and data refreshes from existing partners. All data is cleaned, transformed, curated and contained in this centralized data warehouse, allowing streamlined inquiries and uniform results. The Data Trust is accessible to investigators by contacting the OneFlorida Coordinating Center. Legal agreements for data use and use of a centralized IRB have already been negotiated with all partners, reducing paperwork and administrative burden.

The Data Trust contains claims and encounter data for Floridians enrolled in Medicaid and Capital Health Plan and robust patient-level electronic health record data from public and private health care systems that are consortium partners. The data includes diagnoses, procedures, medications, patient demographics, unique patient codes for re-identification by consortium partners and other data elements in the PCORnet Common Data Model (CDM). For individual studies, data queries can be highly tailored, and the consortium is enhancing the Data Trust with data elements beyond the PCORnet CDM.

The Practice-Based Research Network

The Data Trust complements the consortium’s Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN), one of 178 national PBRNs registered with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The OneFlorida Practice-based Research Network allows the conduct of pragmatic clinical trials and other interventional studies in the consortium’s research-ready clinics. Research is conducted in real-world settings to promote the uptake and sustainability of evidence-based health care practices.

The Practice Network is managed by the Integrated Clinical Research Program, which coordinates a variety of research supports designed to create an efficient and streamlined process for practice and patient recruitment, data collection and assessment of patient outcomes.
Intervention sites include academic health care centers and affiliated clinics, private health systems and clinics, public health care systems and clinics, community health centers, and physician-owned practices.
