CTSI Consultations and Collaborations in Biomedical Informatics and Data Management

The CTSI provides consultations to help research teams plan informatics-related projects, and collaborates with teams to make use of biomedical informatics methods and resources to facilitate and expand the scope of their work. Available consultation types:

  • Data management: plan approaches to capture, organize and transform data to support research needs
  • REDCap: determine if REDCap is the right tool for your data capture needs and help you get started
  • Clinical data access: make plans to acquire the clinical data you need for your research project
  • Community and population health data: assess data and informatics needs for community-based or population health research projects
  • Federal public use data access: access and analyze public access datasets from the CDC and other federal agencies, including the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the National Health Care Surveys, The National Vital Statistics System (NVSS), the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the National Immunization Survey (NIS), Longitudinal Studies of Aging (LSOA), the State and Local Integrated Telephone Survey (SLAITS) and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)
  • Clinical systems in research: make plans to utilize eRecord and other clinical systems to support your research project
  • IT systems in research: get advice regarding innovative information technology, systems and tools, or related methods, to support your research projects
  • mTurk: assistance with setting up projects in Amazon Mechanical Turk
  • Bioinformatics analysis: make plans to develop or apply analytic and statistical methods to biological data
