• Resources and Services

    The Division of Biomedical Informatics provides a variety of computational resources, services and support to investigators at Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Complete information can be found on our Research IT Core Services web site.
  • Available computational resources include the i2b2 research data warehouse for cohort identification, a cluster with more than 300 processing cores for executing computationally intensive jobs, network filers and relational database systems for secure and regulatory compliant data storage, and an array of licensed and open-source scientific software applications including statistical analysis packages.  

    We offer support services for both basic and clinical research. Our service staff can help with the selection, purchase and installation / configuration of basic research tools (e.g., electronic lab notebook software, cluster computing applications), and can provide both formal (grant-funded) and informal assistance in areas such as sequence analysis and microarray data analysis.

    We also specialize in the development of electronic data capture systems using tools such as Microsoft SharePoint Services with InfoPath, in addition to designing / developing informational and collaborative portals, research patient registries and other custom software, including multimedia applications.

    Our help desk provides support for all BMI-developed and -hosted research technologies during normal business hours, 8 am-5 pm Monday through Friday.  Requests can be submitted to our online ticket system via help@bmi.cchmc.org.  Cincinnati Children’s employees needing basic desktop support (e.g., Windows, Mac), help with any clinical or general business system, or emergency assistance with research systems outside normal business hours should contact the service desk at 513-636-4100.
