Established Common Metrics

Established Metrics icon

Currently, there are four Common Metrics that have been developed and disseminated for use by the CTSA Program hubs, as tools for collaborative strategic management. 

Informatics

The purpose of this metric is to Improve the interoperability of data within multiple systems by making the data adhere to the FAIR data principles to ultimately enable rich machine readable data:

Operational Guidelines

Careers in Clinical & Translational Research

The purpose of this metric is to measure and develop strategic management plans to enhance the extent to which CTSA Program hubs and the Consortium as a whole are training and supporting scientists to remain engaged in clinical and translational research into the future.

IRB Duration

The purpose of this metric is to measure IRB duration and develop strategic management plans, including collaborations, to shorten the time it takes to receive IRB approval. Long IRB review duration can delay study start, prolonging the time until benefits of clinical and translational science findings can be realized.

Pilot Funding and Publications

The purpose of this metric is to measure and develop strategic management plans to ensure that important findings from research studies supported by the CTSA Pilot Programs are being disseminated in the scientific literature.
