The CTSI data team worked closely with the Comprehensive Cancer Center to structure and incorporate their Tumor Biorepository data into i2b2. This data can be found under the root folder "Cancer Center Biorepository." It is organized by ICD-O-3 Oncology sites. Number of samples available are also recorded. This information is cross-queryable with the Cancer Registry and EHR data points for the same patients.
Why you would want to use this data:
To identify tissue samples available for study, both tumorous and healthy tissue.
How does this link to EHR data?
Patients are identified by MRN so the entire record is associable. Specimen collection encounters, however, are isolated so using "same financial encounter" will not provide results.
Where is it located in i2b2?
This data can be found under the root folder "Cancer Center Biorepository."
