HERON Wiese Slough shows progress toward incorporating de-identified free-text physician notes

HERON Wiese Slough includes a subset of de-identified free-text physician notes. These notes can be found in the folder "reports." For notes that are available in HERON, you can search to see if a patient has a specific note type in their chart or you can look for specific text within the note. For example, ED Notes are available and you can limit your search to find patients who have diabetes recorded in the ED note.

Need help with HERON? Join the Frontiers Lunch and Learn which meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month from 12:00 - 1:30 PM in room 3001D Student Center. Register in advance if possible but drop-ins are welcome.

Any publication that results from a project utilizing HERON should cite grant support (CTSA Award # UL1TR000001).
