HERON Babcock includes data from the Cystic Fibrosis registry

HERON Babcock release includes the addition of data from KUMC entered into the Cystic Fibrosis registry. You may query on terms recorded in the registry along with information from a patient's medical record.

Another enhancement is the update of folder names to be easier to navigate. University HealthSystem? Consortium has changed their name to Vizient. Inpatient quality data can now be found in the folder titled "Vizient (formerly UHC)".

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).
