PHINEX Pilot Project
The UW-Department of Family Medicine began establishing the University of Wisconsin Electronic Health Record Public Health Information Exchange (UW e-Health PHINEX) with a pilot project in 2009.
The PHINEX Pilot Project was the first iteration of a collaboratively designed, implemented, and utilized dataset linking de-identified electronic healthcare records (EHR) and community-level data
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
PHINEX also partnered with the UW Biostatistics & Medical Informatics Department (UW-Biostatistics) where colleagues perform spatial and other complex statistical analyses on the database using data mining and machine learning techniques.
Nearly a dozen papers and presentations.
Past funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Medicaid Transformation Grants, and the Wisconsin Clearinghouse for Prevention Resources.
