Our long-term goal is to help create a research environment and
culture where rehabilitation scientists will have the skills and
knowledge to become significant contributors to the changes in health
care policy and practice that are being driven through the use of large
data and the unprecedented expansion of health care information that has
occurred in recent years.
Previously funded in 2010 as the Center for Rehabilitation
Research using Large Datasets, the revised Center for Large Data
Research and Data Sharing in Rehabilitation (CLDR) continues and expands
upon the original mission to build rehabilitation research capacity by
increasing the quantity and quality of rehabilitation outcomes research
using large administrative and research datasets.
this mission to include an important focus on data sharing and archiving
information from completed rehabilitation research studies.
