Implementing the Precision Oncology Data Repository within the department of Veterans Affairs consists of a multistep process, including de-identification and alignment of clinical, imaging and genetic data. Our setup allowed the transfer of data for 113 consented veterans to a server cluster at the Buffalo VAMC and facilitates data expansion and increase of participating veterans. De-identified data is available for research within the VA and transferred to the GDC and Bionimbus for non-VA researchers.

Learning Objective 1: To highlight the multistep development process that is required to aggregate data and built a repository containing several data streams of de-identified, but coded data (molecular diagnostics, imaging and longitudinal clinical data) and that facilitates a flexible system that allows for iterative updates and expansion.
