The Information Commons provides access to several resources for research

Information Commons hosts multi-factor and multi-modal data, including UCSF’s structured clinical data, clinical notes, meta-data on clinical notes, extracted concepts from clinical notes using Natural Language Processing (NLP) and other approaches, radiological images, meta-data extracted from DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) headers.  Other sources are planned to be added in the future, including omics data (cancer and germline), pathology slides, waveform data from bedside monitoring devices, data from UC Health Data Warehouse.
