Thursday, June 25 | 10AM - 11AM


Join the Data Office for a live online tutorial that will cover the basics of EMERSE (the Electronic Medical Record Search Engine), an easy-to-use, self-service search engine for the free text documents coming from Michigan Medicine's electronic health record systems. Learn how to:

  • Access 172 million progress notes, history and physicals, outpatient clinic visit notes, radiology reports, pathology reports, and even older CareWeb notes for your research!
  • Find a cohort based on a set of search terms, and save the cohort to do a deeper-dive chart review.
  • And more!
