How do you meet data management and biostatistical expertise needs for a hospital?

Providing expertise to researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia


When the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) needed experts in data management and biostatistics support for its many research studies, it turned to Westat.


Westat expanded and operated the hospital’s Biostatistics and Data Management Core (BDMC), which works on a wide variety of studies in virtually all the subspecialties of pediatric medicine.

We have provided expertise in a number of ways:

  • Evaluating the needs of ongoing and proposed studies
  • Meeting with researchers to discuss their data management and biostatistical needs
  • Helping researchers with study design, data management, and statistical analyses
  • Helping researchers write grant applications to get funding for studies


We have supported more than 100 studies in cardiology, neurology, oncology, nephrology, infectious diseases, and injury prevention. The studies have varied from gene therapy clinical trials to observational and epidemiologic investigations.

The researchers we work with have presented their studies at scientific meetings and published them in peer-reviewed journals.

Their research is supporting evidence-based decisionmaking on a variety of important health issues.
