Welcome to Health Sciences South Carolina!

Health Sciences South Carolina is America's first statewide research collaborative focused entirely on transforming healthcare quality, health information systems, tomorrow's workforce, and ultimately, patient outcomes.

Health Sciences South Carolina Launches Nation's First Statewide Clinical Data Warehouse

HSSC’s Clinical Data Warehouse (CDW) links and matches de-identified (anonymous) electronic patient records from South Carolina’s largest health care systems to enable providers and researchers to follow patient conditions in real-time. It also allows biomedical researchers to conduct patient-centered outcomes research and comparative effectiveness studies across a much broader and aggregated patient population base. This is the first system of its kind to bring together three major research universities and several large health care systems. Bioinformatics for the system came from the Medical University of South Carolina, while the University of South Carolina developed the operations software. Clemson University hosts and provides patient privacy and security for the CDW. Read More.
