Clinical data repository
CTSI’s Best Practices Integrated Informatics Core (BPIC) team, which is a part of BMIP, welcomes three new data analysts who will be fully dedicated to serving the clinical data needs of researchers, clinicians and leaders within their assigned areas.
The Clinical Research Support Center is celebrating many achievements since opening its doors in September and remains steadfast on its focus to identify the appropriate experts and functional groups to support researchers and study teams as they navigate and advance projects through the clinical research process.
CTSI joins the world-wide celebration May 20 to recognize Clinical Trials Day to honor those who are at the forefront of conducting and raising awareness of clinical trials across the health sciences and throughout the University of Minnesota to improve health.
More than 100 visitors attended the Clinical Research Support Center Open House earlier this month to help celebrate the new center’s grand opening, network with colleagues, and learn about the support and resources available to U of M clinical researchers and study teams.
Earlier this year, CTSI submitted an application to renew its Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). CTSI’s proposal focuses on enhancing the scope, quality, and efficiency of team-based clinical and translational science research, with the ultimate goal of improving human health.
More than 2 million medical records housed in the CTSI-led clinical data repository have been assigned GPS coordinates, giving researchers a more flexible, precise way to study health issues that involve location.
CTSI’s Informatics Consulting Service can fulfill requests for geocoded data at no cost to researchers at the University of Minnesota and Fairview Health Services.
As the new year begins, we want to remind University of Minnesota researchers about the recruitment policies in place. Policies are owned by Fairview Health Services, and supported by the University of Minnesota. To ensure compliance with Minnesota law and respect patient decisions, researchers who wish to recruit Fairview patients for research should know the following:
CTSI’s Informatics Consulting Services (ICS) recently began offering a new self-service tool to University investigators that retrieves unstructured clinical notes from the electronic health record.
“The research I’m doing would not be possible in the age of paper medical charts, and would not be possible without the clinical data from CTSI."
