REMEDI Research Access
REMEDI platform is a virtual home for community of health professionals - nurses and pharmacists - working to improve patient safety at their hospitals. By sharing alerts and settings data from the "smart" medical devices in their care units, they get to see and analyze data from other hospitals and take informed data-driven decisions on how to adjust their technology and practices to make it safer for patients.
REMEDI Research Access project aims to provide an interface for medical researchers to access collected de-identified data and offer a way for researchers to publish study results in the form of data-driven decision-support tools for the medical professionals to use in their daily work.
Important Note on Data Access
This repository hosts open resources and code for the research community to work with the data.
The data itself, although de-identified, is of sensitive nature, so must be treated with appropriate care and respect and therefore requires special access permissions. Researchers seeking to use the database must formally request access. Access request instructions will be posted when available.
The Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering (RCHE), an interdisciplinary research center, focused on improving healthcare delivery, located at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN, developed an evidence-based community of practice for medical device informatics to promote and improve patient safety named the Regenstrief National Center for Medical Device Informatics (REMEDI).
REMEDI Central is the "go-to" site for medical device data, benchmarking, analysis, and research results for multiple medical devices, hundreds of hospitals, several medical device vendors, and a number of associations and organizations focused on improving healthcare delivery. Clinicians, primarily pharmacists and nurses, use REMEDI Central's analytics and reporting capabilities, and the knowledge of the collaborative to support hospital operations and improve patient safety.

Thanks for your interest in contributing to REMEDI Research Access Project! We are looking to collaborate with open health data and health data privacy experts, patient safety groups, medical researchers and developers. For more info take a look at CONTRIBUTING.md.
While there is no session on the REMEDI project at this year's Mozfest Festival, the development team are attending the event and running 3 sessions on HUBzero - the open source platform REMEDI is built on.
So join us at the Mozilla Festival October 28-30, 2016 at Ravensbourne College, London!
