Background  Clinical data warehouses are now widely used to foster clinical and translational research and the Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside (i2b2) platform has become a de facto standard for storing clinical data in many projects. However, to design predictive models and assist in personalized treatment planning in cancer or radiation oncology, all available patient data need to be integrated into i2b2, including radiation therapy data that are currently not addressed in… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Noncurated Data Lead to Misinterpretation of Treatment Outcomes in Patients With Prostate Cancer After Salvage or Palliative Radiotherapy.
It is indicated that time-to-event outcomes for patients with prostate cancer cannot be extracted using secondary data sources (cDWH plus GTDS) only.
Leaving No Stone Unturned: Using Machine Learning Based Approaches for Information Extraction from Full Texts of a Research Data Warehouse
This paper shows the implementation of machine learning and NLP techniques into the data warehouse integration process in order to provide consolidated, processed and qualified data to be queried for teaching and research purposes.

Deep Learning and Radiomics predict complete response after neo-adjuvant chemoradiation for locally advanced rectal cancer
The DNN model correctly predicted complete response after neo-adjuvant rectal chemoradiotherapy in 80% of the patients of this multicenter cohort, which may help to identify patients who would benefit from a conservative treatment, rather than a radical resection.


Labeling for Big Data in radiation oncology: The Radiation Oncology Structures ontology
A new ontology, specific to radiation oncology, is described, that will be used to integrate dosimetric data in the Assistance Publique—Hôpitaux de Paris CDW that stores data from 6.5 million patients.
The ONCO-I2b2 Project: Integrating Biobank Information and Clinical Data to Support Translational Research in Oncology
OnCO-i2b2, funded by the Lombardia region, grounds on the software developed by the Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside (i 2b2) NIH project, and new software modules purposely designed, data coming from multiple sources are integrated and jointly queried.
Standardized data collection to build prediction models in oncology: a prototype for rectal cancer.
The strategy to collect and analyze data properly for decision support is described and the concept of an 'umbrella protocol' within the framework of 'rapid learning healthcare' is introduced.
Combining clinical and genomics queries using i2b2 – Three methods
This work investigated the capability for complex, integrative genomic and clinical queries to be supported in the Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside (i2b2) translational software package and developed three different data integration approaches.
Evaluating the informatics for integrating biology and the bedside system for clinical research
The i2b2 hive was found to be a useful cohort-selection tool for fulfilling common types of requests for research data, and especially in the estimation of initial cohort sizes.
High Throughput Tools to Access Images from Clinical Archives for Research
A new Medical Imaging Informatics Bench to Bedside (mi2b2) module is described, available now as an open source addition to the i 2b2 software platform that allows medical imaging examinations collected during routine clinical care to be made available to translational investigators directly from their institution's clinical PACS for research and educational use in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Omnibus Rule.
Integrating Heterogeneous Biomedical Data for Cancer Research: the CARPEM infrastructure
This article identifies a set of scientific and technical principles needed to build a translational research platform compatible with ethical requirements, data protection and data-integration problems, and describes the solution adopted by the CARPEM cancer research program.
BigQ: a NoSQL based framework to handle genomic variants in i2b2
BigQ, an extension of the i2b2 framework, which integrates patient clinical phenotypes with genomic variant profiles generated by Next Generation Sequencing, is developed and an evaluation of the query performance of the system is reported, showing that the implemented solution scales linearly in terms of query time and disk space with the number of variants.
