Research Derived from CRANE

There are currently 11 projects in development directly resulting from CRANE resources.

 

Highlighted CRANE projects:

Puvvula J, Campbell WS, Ganti AK, Tendulkar K. Incidence of cancer in chronic kidney disease. Abstract of a poster presented at the National Kidney Foundation 2019 Spring Clinical Meetings, May 8-12, 2019, Boston, Massachusetts. (Featured in Nephrology Times; Poster Presentation Download)

Pilot Projects in Development

Dmitry Oleynikov, MD, FACS Project: Use of i2B2 to Examine General Surgery Outcomes in Rural and Urban Patient Populations: a Big Data Analysis (Poster Download)

Access to primary care physicians and the cost of care continue to be problematic in Nebraska, especially in rural areas of the state. The purpose of this study is to examine clinical and surgical outcomes in rural and urban patient populations using the Informatics for Integrating Biology & the Bedside (i2B2) platform to query data from our hospital electronic health record. Our hypothesis is that social disparities will exist between patients originating from rural and urban locations, despite receiving care in the same academic hospital, and that rural patients will have lower rates of follow-up and compliance. This study will be one of the first uses of Informatics of the i2B2 platform in the context of surgical outcomes with our hospital electronic health record, and will explore the feasibility of using this large database with long-term clinical and surgical outcomes. Information from this study will provide experience and background in order to springboard our study methodology to other medical institutions in the Great Plains Collaborative Network.
