The data we provide has the potential to expose unique obstacles and opportunities for impact in allowing high-quality health care access to local communities. It empowers researchers through streamlined, on-demand tools and prioritized access to health care data, presenting them with the unique opportunity to engage in translational, sustainable and transdisciplinary population health research that has the capability to influence patient health outcomes immediately. The Center for Health Outcomes and Population Research COBRE directly supports the Data Exchange Core.
