Unified Learning Environment for Analytics & Data (ULEAD)

ULEAD is a cloud-based, secured, unified virtual environment, in which users can analyze and visualize data using select tools and datasets. The objective of the ULEAD platform is to protect PHI data while making it available in a secure manner for UCLA Health Community. It offers the UCLA Health community many benefits, including:

  • Enhanced data security
  • Streamlined process for data access
  • Reduced burden of data release approval as the data will remain in a secure environment
  • Access to compute resources that are more powerful than users’ local laptops or desktops
  • Scalable architecture to support growing business needs

ULEAD will be made available to the UCLA Health community in multiple phases. Pilot set of users were CTSI and select users from Research Community. Following successful pilot implementation, this platform is effectively used by CTSI for releasing data to researchers. Researchers use the tools available in the platform for their analytical needs.
