All Common Metrics

The goal is to use specific, common metrics to demonstrate and improve the impact of the CTSA Program. The CMI uses this set of metrics to help focus consortium and hub activities on making significant, measurable improvements in translational science and research, and workforce development.

Common Metrics Reporting

CLIC provides CTSA Program hubs with the resources needed to report their annual Common Metrics data.

Insights to Inspire

CLIC launched this program to disseminate actionable intelligence across the consortium to share lessons learned, foster innovation, and to encourage collaboration across the hubs. Key actionable strategies may be identified by hubs for implementation to improve specific areas of their programs.

Evaluator’s Group

This group meets every other month to provide ongoing support for evaluators across the consortium with a focus on cutting edge evaluation methods, evaluation expertise, and exploring cross-hub collaborations on topics relevant to translational science evaluation.

Latest Announcements

CLIC is pleased to announce that the Common Metrics Multi-Year Data Report: 2015-2019, is now available on our website. Approved hub personnel can view the report and the PowerPoint files. Access to these files is approved through your local CTSA Program website administrator.

CTSA Program institutions are encouraged to share and discuss their Multi-Year Reports with their leadership teams as well as their NCATS Program Director.

On February 1, 2021, CLIC will be removing user access to enter and edit Common Metrics data in Scorecard! The data for the Informatics and Careers in Clinical & Translational Research Common Metrics will be migrated to the new CM-PRISM database.

Clear Impact Scorecard licenses will expire on April 30th.
Hubs are encouraged to export any Scorecard data that they would like to maintain locally.

Informatics and Careers metric data will be migrated to the new database. IRB and Pilot Funding metrics have been sunsetted and are not supported by CM-PRISM.
