The purpose of the Consortium for Oral Health Related Informatics (COHRI) is to establish an Oral Health Data Repository that can accept and integrate data from disparate dental data sources, and allow end users to explore and extract information to support their specific research or decision making needs. We are working with UT, UCSF, Harvard, and Tufts to create a joint data warehouse that contains dental data from each institution.
The main objective for a central eMPI is to consolidate patient records from across institutions creating unique and non-duplicated patient medical histories.
