The Shared Health Research Information Network (SHRINE) helps researchers overcome one of the greatest problems in population-based research: Compiling large groups of well-characterized patients. Eligible investigators may use the SHRINE web-based query tool to determine the aggregate total number of patients at participating hospitals who meet a given set of inclusion and exclusion criteria (currently demographics, diagnoses, medications, and selected laboratory values).

The second SHRINE conference took place July 25-26, 2012. In attendance were more than 80 delegates representing 40 different institutions from 20 states and four European countries. Throughout the two exciting half-days of the conference, attendees heard captivating talks about the technical implementations and the use of SHRINE, including a particularly lively discussion about what it takes for SHRINE to scale for clinical trials nationwide. A video of the conference is available on the conference website, where you can also find a link to SHRINE as open-source code.
