The INSIGHT Clinical Research Network has been established to improve and streamline research in an effort to advance patient-centered research. Together, we can find answers that will save lives.
The INSIGHT Network was founded with and continues to be supported by Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The mission of INSIGHT is to create an accessible, sustainable, scalable clinical data network to facilitate patient-centered research, learning healthcare systems and the national research network—PCORnet. We bring together top academic medical centers, including Albert Einstein School of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center, Columbia University and Weill Cornell Medicine/New York-Presbyterian Hospital, lcahn School of Medicine/Mount Sinai Health System, and New York University School of Medicine/Langone Medical Center.
The goal of the INSIGHT Network is to enable patients and medical providers to make better-informed clinical decisions, putting patients first.
The INSIGHT Network collects comprehensive medical histories for approximately 17 million patients. This robust data enables groundbreaking medical research in a way that ensures the privacy and security of our patients.
By participating in our research, patients give us the potential to provide the most thorough and detailed snapshot of patient care in New York City and the greater metropolitan area— information critical to determining how effective and economical existing health care treatments and delivery models are and how they compare against each other.
Ultimately, the INSIGHT Network will be a leading component of PCORnet — a national research data network that will enable researchers to perform data queries and analysis across various regions and patient populations.
