Our Data Science team has developed an advanced analytics platform that captures high-fidelity physiological waveform data from critical care patient beds at the University of Michigan. We're able to harness the power of 'big data' and digital technologies for developing and testing clinical decision support (CDS) tools. Our patient data includes waveforms, nurse validated vitals, labs, and medications from University of Michigan hospitals including over 500 beds at the University Hospital and nearly 300 beds at Mott’s Children’s Hospital. The MCIRCC Data Platform captures real-time data, performs a certified de-identification process, and stores the de-identified data on the Cloud for MCIRCC member research use.
Our data scientists also have years of experience building analytical models for a wide array of applications. You can leverage our machine learning expertise to tackle your big data problems.
Whether you want to utilize our data, or you already have your own, our expert data scientists can work with you to gain maximum insight. We offer several distinct Data Science services including:
Providing members access to custom MCIRCC tools that allow our members to create cohorts and annotate waveforms.
Pulling de-identified cohort data for MCIRCC members.
Creating custom analytics as part of grants in which we are written.
Analyzing and building models using data from DataDirect or other clinical data warehouses
In short, if you need data research, we have the skills and resources to help you!

Our Pre-Clinical Operative and Intensive Care Unit Facility is a unique unit that produces best in class high-fidelity large animal models of multisystem trauma, cardiac arrest, sepsis, ARDS and traumatic brain injury allowing for combinatorial discovery and translational science as well as technology development. The unit is equipped with state of the art high resolution physiologic and metabolic monitoring and analytic equipment providing for unique “physiomic” monitoring, tissue banking and analysis for preclinical research.
The unit is equipped and staffed to serve as a fully functional operating room and intensive care unit. As such, the depth and breadth of critical illness and injury that can be explored may perhaps have few if any peers around the world. Work performed in MCIRCC’s Operative and Intensive Care Unit Facility has been critical in collecting advanced physiologic data as well as therapeutic, device, and diagnostic prototype data to support NIH, NSF, DoD, industry and internal funding opportunities for both preclinical and clinical translational opportunities. This also includes data used to support the transition of technology to Phase I clinical trials for therapeutics, and human trials for regulated use of class I and II devices.
The unit works in close collaboration with MCIRCC’s PDU, Big Data Platform Unit, Pre-Clinical Trials Unit and its Grand Challenge Unit to speed the development and transition of findings and technology to the bedside and to enhance opportunities for follow-on funding. Many of these are highlighted in the various appendices.
This unit has been extremely successful and in many cases transformative in
Recent examples include trauma, TBI, vascular disease and cardiac arrest experiments designed to understand physiology that were also used to develop a new generation of coagulation and oxidative stress monitoring technologies, new cerebral monitoring technologies, new mathematical modeling methods for systems biology, and samples collected to discover new metabolomics and microbiome profiles produced by critical illness and injury.

An international leader in patient care, education and research, the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) critical care network is home to 10 critical care units including a new emergency department ICU, a Level 1 Trauma and Burn Center, as well as Survival Flight, ambulatory and home care programs.
The Clinical Research Unit assists investigators with all aspects of clinical research. We are able to handle IRB submissions, necessary for working with human subjects, and make sure the research is compliant with the regulatory requirements. Our team of coordinators screen and recruit patients for participation in research from internal and external sources. Informed consent is obtained following regulatory guidelines and our team is able to collect samples and data, pull medical record information, and de-identify protected information so that it's ready for use.
The Clinical Research Unit is happy to work with industry partners on feasibility and pilot studies. Have you worked with an engineer on a device prototype? Our team can help you gather preliminary data in some cases.

What happens when you bring scientists, entrepreneurs, and innovators together in a casual atmosphere? Big ideas!
Innovation Underground is a series of free get-togethers for our members and industry partners. It's a chance to meet like-minded individuals looking to make a difference in critical care.
Want to meet the scientists, engineers, and clinicians behind some of MCIRCC’s most innovative technologies and solutions? Interested in presenting or hosting an upcoming Innovation Underground? Contact Marketing Director Megan VanStratt for more information.
Semi-annually, we invite leaders from all disciplines to present on a range of critical care topics such as neurologic catastrophes, sepsis and severe inflammation, trauma and combat casualty care, and cardiac emergencies. The MCIRCC Seminar Series provides great opportunity to network with MCIRCC members and to discuss ideas and innovations in critical care medicine.
Do you have expert knowledge in a field related to critical care medicine? Interested in presenting to some of U-M’s top researchers? Contact Marketing Director Megan VanStratt for more information.
Dr. Steffen Leonhardt, Philips Endowed Chair of Medical Information Technology at the RWTH Aachen University in Germany, was in Ann Arbor on March 9 discussing nonobtrusive and noncontact monitoring techniques for medical applications.
About 50 attendees turned out to Palmer Forum for the first of the MCRICC Seminar Series, which invites leaders from all disciplines to present on a range of critical care topics.
