HERON Solomon marks the 32nd consecutive release

Over the past 32 releases, HERON grew in data, functionality, and use. New data types include REDCap projects, Biospecimen Repository, Tumor Registry information, and much more. In response to this increase, the Medical Informatics team lead the HERON Fishing Trip, an extended training workshop in August 2013. This two day event consisted of hands-on and classroom trainings with attendance both in person and online.

Since that workshop, monthly searches have surpassed 1000, Frontiers Research Participant Registry requests increased, and clinics are steadily attended. Researchers, study coordinators, students, and administrators from multiple areas of KUMC and KU Hospital search HERON. Thirty-two releases after the initial launch and HERON continues to grow.

The Solomon release includes clinical data through September 2013.
