Announcements for Stanford researchers:

  • May 29, 2024: Starting 18th Jun 2024, MRNs created at Stanford Hospitals will have 10 digits (vs the current 8 digits). This may affect your analytical workflow if you are assuming MRNs are a fixed length. If you do not have access to STARR user slack channel or STARR Tools and find yourself requiring the details on the ranges and allocations for the two hospitals, please request a consultation with one of the STARR team members. 

Self-service tools

The self-services tools are designed to meet a range of use cases such as cohort analysis using a graphical user interface, SQL access to pre-IRB databases, access to de-identified clinical text, linking multi-modal pre-IRB data, complex phenotyping and more.
