The CTSC Core Informatics Group provides software, training, and custom programming to support data collection and management needs of clinical researchers throughout the CTSC’s multi-institutional partnership. The group is led by Elizabeth Wood, MS, who is also Co-Director of the Informatics program within the CTSC. Specific data management-related services include REDCap and mobile app development.
For REDCap service provision as well as recruitment-related services, the Core Informatics Group works in close collaboration with Weill Cornell’s ARCH infrastructure. This collaboration connects CTSC tools with institutional resources such as the electronic data warehouse, which supports the direct flow of patient data from the outpatient medical records system into REDCap databases. ARCH workshops are held every Thursday at 11am in the Weill Cornell Medicine Library (Surface Hub Area) at 1300 York Avenue, New York, NY. Researchers from all CTSC partner institutions are welcome to drop in. (See http://arch.weill.cornell.edu for more information.)
