Achilles:Data Characterizing Tool and ATLAS: Cohort Extraction Tool


This video, Dr. Rae Woong Park introduces you ACHILLES and ATLAS tools.

Automated Characterization of Health Information at Large-scale Longitudinal Evidence Systems (ACHILLES) is one of the tools characterizing the data in the hospital. It is a platform that enables the characterization, quality assessment and visualization of observational health databases. ACHILLES provides users with an interactive, exploratory framework to assess patient demographics, the prevalence of conditions, drugs, and procedures, and to evaluate the distribution of values for clinical observations.

You can check this demo webpage by following Dr. Rae Woong Park’s demonstration.

ATLAS is another tool for researchers. When researchers attempt to extract data or quote for research using the ATLAS, the researchers can design their own facilities, and the software automatically generates human-readable data for the study. Additionally, it generates SQL that enables extracting that patient data problem from the databases. This is convenient for the researcher.

The demonstration of ATLAS will be presented by Dr. Seng Chan You. We will see the tutorial in the later steps.
