General Medicine Inpatient Initiative
Based out of Unity Health Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital, the General Medicine Inpatient Initiative (GEMINI) is a data and analytics initiative that provides insights into patient care. Harnessing routinely collected administrative and clinical data from hospital IT systems, the GEMINI data platform is used for research and quality improvement efforts. Since 2016, we have developed infrastructure and methodology to enable Big Data extraction, standardization, and validation. The GEMINI data platform currently consists of billions of data points on over 245,000 hospitalizations.
