Data Broker Services
The mission of Data Broker Services is to provide a centralized, standardized review of all requests for clinical data at UMSOM/UHealth. Data is increasingly the lifeblood of the organization and must flow to meet its needs. In an increasingly complex regulatory environment with concerns over information privacy and security, the flows of data, particularly identifiable and other sensitive data, must be balanced against compliance, security and regulatory risk. Data Broker Services act as an essential component of our overall data protection strategy, while facilitating the institution’s overall goals for delivering high quality healthcare, transforming patient care through research and educating the next generation of medical leaders.
The data broker program serves as an independent intermediary between the clinical enterprise and requesters of clinical data, primarily the research community, but also increasingly facilitates Business/Finance decision-making, healthcare operations, quality improvement and other business needs for UHealth/Miller School of Medicine. Data flows and analytics are essential for strategic planning at the parent UHealth and major facility level, as well as tactically for clinical departments and related business units. We seek to enhance our overall competitive position as an academic medical center and as the leading provider of healthcare services in South Florida and regionally.
