HERON (Healthcare Enterprise Repository for Ontological Narration) is a search discovery tool that allows faculty or sponsored individuals to search de-identified data from Epic/O2 (the hospital electronic medical record), IDX (the clinical billing system), Kansas Cancer Registry, REDCap (selected projects), Social Security Death Index, and University Health System Consortium (Quality Measure Data). By combining the various data sources, researchers can look at the data in new ways not available when viewing data from one source at a time.
