In addition to data gathering, analyses pertaining to specific topics, reporting activities, manuscript and presentation preparation, methodological research is also prominent.
Hazard Function Technology
Hazard Function Technology, a powerful software package, was developed originally by Dr. Blackstone’s group at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and now being maintained and expanded at Cleveland Clinic. It is useful for assessment of risk factors for time-related events.
Cleveland Clinic has been heavily involved in both developing and applying Semantic Web standards. The goal is to improve future patient care through outcomes-based and longitudinal clinical research.
