Register with the Data Access Hub. You will be approved by the HCCI team and able to view more granular information about the data, as well as submit an application. You can view the application here and when you're ready, you will submit electronically.Once an application has been submitted and approved, researchers will complete compliance paperwork. Then research teams will be provisioned access to the secure data enclave environment and can begin their research.
We generally run on a per project, per year basis, with the cost being $45,000 for annual access. For students, there is a 1 seat option, where the cost is $15,000 for the year. If your institution is interested in broader access, we can discuss details, which include the opportunity for volume discounts if you initiate multiple projects.
Yes. HCCI offers a volume discount on additional projects that are initiated within the first year of data access. If you (or other researchers in your institution/organization) apply and are approved for 1 additional project within the year, it will be discounted by 5%. For 2 additional projects within the year, both projects will be discounted by 10%, and 3 additional projects will be discounted by 15%. HCCI caps the discount at 15% for 4 or more projects, as our fixed costs associated with acquiring and maintaining the dataset will not allow for deeper discounting.
No, your year of access is limited to the research proposed within your application. However, you are welcome to write your research proposal to allow for multiple research questions (while maintaining a cohesive focus), and to publish results in multiple papers. Additionally, per HCCI’s volume discount program, you can apply for additional projects during your year of access and receive a discount that increases with the number of additional projects.
