Mining Data from axiUm - At UTSD, we use axiUm as our primary Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. EHR plays an important role in helping students, residents and faculty members in recording patient information and also making critical patient information available during their visit. But the scope of EHRs goes beyond the point of care. This wealth of information could also be used for clinical and educational research.

If anyone from UTSD is interested in extracting data from axiUm for your research or would like to learn more about the available data and how to get access to it, please contact Krishna Kookal from the informatics team. We would be happy to help you in extracting data and helping with your research.

BigMouth Dental Data Repository is an oral health database developed from electronic health record data contributed by five dental schools that are part of the Consortium for Oral Health Research and Informatics (COHRI). The data repository has been developed using i2b2, an open source data warehousing tool.

The Dental Data Repository contains data on 1.5 million patients. The current participants are:

  • UTHealth School of Dentistry
  • Harvard School of Dental Medicine
  • Tufts University School of Dental Medicine

This tool is available for everyone at UTSD.
