  • CLIC
    This webcast explores the importance of data standardization and warehousing for clinical research.
  • To accelerate translation, researchers need access to a broad range of data from a variety of sources (electronic health records, imaging, genetics, behavioral, etc.). These sources manage and store data differently, which creates the need for standardization. The Informatics Common Metric, which is in its second year, addresses the need to harmonize data across the CTSA Program. This will enhance

    Health information technology (HIT) can address important problems in clinical care and biomedical research. These problems include lack of compliance with clinical practice guidelines [1], insufficient use of preventative medicine services [2] and numerous impediments to clinical/translational research [3].

  • Journal of Association of American Medical Colleges

    Clinical and translational research increasingly requires computation. Projects may involve multiple computationally oriented groups including information technology (IT) professionals, computer scientists, and biomedical informaticians. However, many biomedical researchers are not aware of the distinctions among these complementary groups, leading to confusion, delays, and suboptimal results.

    Electronic health records (EHRs) provide great promise for identifying cohorts and enhancing research recruitment. Such approaches are sorely needed, but there are few descriptions in the literature of prevailing practices to guide their use. A multidisciplinary workgroup was formed to examine current practices in the use of EHRs in recruitment and to propose future directions.

  • Journal of Clinical and Translational Science

    A robust biomedical informatics infrastructure is essential for academic health centers engaged in translational research. There are no templates for what such an infrastructure encompasses or how it is funded. An informatics workgroup within the Clinical and Translational Science Awards network conducted an analysis to identify the scope, governance, and funding of this infrastructure.

    In a seminal paper, Case and Deaton (2015) described a growing phenomenon, “diseases of despair” –namely drug overdose, suicide, and alcoholic liver disease--that underlies the first-ever decline in life expectancy in the U.S. and that disproportionately affects white non-Hispanic Americans and those living in rural communities. Addressing conditions within the health system alone ignores that
