The STRIDE Cohort Discovery Tool provides a self-service method for asking questions to help identify a cohort of patients for a potential study. Search criteria can include demographics, diagnosis and procedure codes (ICD-9 and CPT), test results, and text search of clinical documents. This service is provided by the Stanford Center for Clinical Informatics.

For Cancer-related patient cohorts contact Stanford Cancer Institute Research Database (SCIRDB). We can help you build a cohort using diagnoses, procedure codes (ICD-9 or ICD-O), and billing codes (CPT). We can help you do complex searches involving dictations and other notes and we can identify which people have tissue stored in the Stanford Tissue bank.
