Synopsis: The OptumLabs Research Collaborative is a unique intra-professional, academic/industry partnership that provides researchers access to linked health insurance, electronic health record and consumer behavior data for over 200 million patient records.  The University of Minnesota is one of the original members of the Research Collaborative which now includes 27 academic and professional organizations. Multiple University of Minnesota faculty have utilized the OptumLabs Data Warehouse (OLDV) for funded studies. The University of Minnesota School of Nursing acts as the support center for any University of Minnesota faculty member who desires to access the database for research purposes.  This presentation will provide an overview of the Research Collaborative, current studies and demonstrate how faculty with or without an informatics background can use the OLDV to conduct research in large complex databases.
