Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW)

VCU and VCU Health System are implementing a single Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), focusing first on clinical and clinical research data. The EDW is intended to be pan-institutional, and as envisioned will incorporate a flexible, modular architecture that will facilitate the storage, management, and mining of clinical, financial, genetic, imaging, biospecimen, text, and streaming data. The planned system will incorporate cutting-edge technologies, accept data from a variety of high-value sources, and allow secure access to individuals and groups using the methods best suited to their requirements.
