Brief synopsis:

The overall aim of the study is to describe the occurrence and determinants of ICU admissions to institutions across multiple continents and assess the role of body mass index (BMI) on ICU survival outcomes. The investigator group will include our CaBOOM affiliated institutions In France, Canada, Hong Kong, U.S (Ochsner) and Australia. I do not think an analytical background (SpSS) is necessary. We are looking for an individual who can extract clinical information from EPIC platform and place into excel/redcap format for statistical analysis.  I would be happy to discuss further with interested individuals. We certainly have support here at Ochsner that could meet and provide some degree of instructions if the individual is not familiar with our EMR.

Prerequisite skills: Extract clinical information from EPIC platform and place into excel/redcap format
