Data is essential to research in providing the evidence needed to make discoveries and to advance knowledge. Without data, it would be difficult or impossible to make meaningful conclusions or to draw valid references.
The ADVANCE Data Warehouse (DW) is the nation’s most comprehensive database on healthcare and outcomes of communities and populations historically underrepresented or excluded from research. Researchers have used ADVANCE data to build models (statistical and machine learning), analyze patterns, make predictions, and reveal insights. ADVANCE engages patients and caregivers throughout the research life cycle to produce relevant, equitable, and person-centered research evidence to strengthen health equity initiatives.
When collaborating with ADVANCE, data sets are curated for researchers and investigators specially for their research aims and goals.
