HERON Calamus Includes HCPCS Codes

HERON Calamus improves data quality

  • Data is now current through January 2018. There was a lag in data as the health system upgraded EPIC. We will work diligently to keep HERON data as fresh as possible.
  • Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPC) codes were brought into HERON. You may search by codes and chose HCPCs to find the procedure you are interested in.
  • Data was once again aligned for the national PCORNet common data model and work continues to be done for the breast cancer rapid cycle research project.

Tips & Tricks: Did you know that all of your previous queries are saved in HERON?

  1. Look on the bottom left of HERON at "Previous Queries"
  2. Click on the query name
  3. While still clicking, drag the query into the query tool (middle of the screen) and drop it at the "query name"
  4. You should see all of your terms displayed in the groups below.
  5. You can re-run this query or add to it.

Software Engineer Spotlight: James Gaupp is the newest member of our software engineering team. He comes from Vanderbilt University and has been working to align our data with the national PCORnet Common Data Model. We are very excited to have James join our team and look forward to the work he does to improve the HERON data and system! Welcome James!

HERON Dora add detailed Frontiers Flag and 10 years of Trauma Data

HERON Dora includes updates to the Frontiers Research Participant Registry information. Frontiers is a recruitment registry of patients at KUMC who have agreed to be contacted for research. Researchers are able to search for patients in the registry who meet their clinical inclusion and exclusion criteria. To search for these patients, look in the demographics folder under "Frontiers Research Participant Registry." Patients are listed as "Do Not Contact," "Ok to Contact," and "Unknown to Contact." To search for patients who have signed up for the registry, only pull over the term "Ok to Contact." "Unknown to Contact" indicates that they have not been approached about participating in the Frontiers previously.

The trauma registry data has been updated to include data from 2006-2016. Users will find this data in the main HERON hierarchy under the folder "Trauma Registry." Trauma Registry modifiers are also included in the procedure folder under the ICD9 and ICD10 procedure hierarchies.

HERON Alice updates Procedures for multi-site targeted cancer therapy study

In support of the Greater Plains Collaborative (GPC) work on a targeted cancer therapy study, we have filled in gaps in the HERON Procedure folder by updating the CPT hierarchy.

This effort also helps us prepare for SHRINE which will allow users to query data across multiple sites in the GPC network. The HERON Procedures ontology is now in alignment with the Harvard-led SCILHS network.

HERON Paradise introduces study enrollment and trauma registry data

New data types in the HERON Paradise release include registry and study enrollment data.

  • Study enrollment information: Want to find out how many people in your patient set are already enrolled in a study at KUMC? Go to the Research Enrollment folder. You can search by status for patients actively enrolled, pre-enrolled and more. Additionally, you can search the status in a specific trial.
  • Trauma registry: Search for patients seen at the KU trauma department. This is the first phase for incorporating this registry into HERON, and future work will include incorporating the outstanding trauma registry fields.

This release includes enhancements to the tumor registry and diagnosis fields.

  • Labels added for site specific factors: Prior to this release, searching the CS Site Specific Factors within the tumor registry required an understanding of the SEER coding structure. This release replaces the numeric codes with text labels making it easier to search items such as ER positive breast cancer patients.
  • Medical History: Previously HERON included any diagnosis added to the medical history field. In this release, the medical history diagnosis is limited to only the most recent recording of medical history.

Save time submitting your next identified data request by searching for team members by your approved IRB number. Searching by IRB number as opposed to a team member name will avoid a request denial due to unauthorized team members listed on the data request.

Feedback on new data sources or enhancements are always welcome.
