Creating Informatics Tools, Resources, Training Opportunities, and Organizational Models to Support and Transform Translational Research
We are currently working in an era with unprecedented opportunities for reengineering and ultimately transforming the way clinical and translational research is designed, conducted and disseminated.
The field of clinical research informatics (CRI) is rapidly evolving to support new frameworks for data sharing, network creation, data access policies, privacy and de/re-identification models, common use data models, phenotype creation and sharing, standards harmonization and other areas of study essential for making new advancements.
CRI implementation and organizational experts are creating innovative tools, support models, sustainable funding cores, local and global training initiatives and software dissemination approaches, all essential requirements for making real-world impact and democratizing access to data resources across all research domains.
There is a growing need for individuals trained and experienced in implementation science within the global CRI community. Given the national focus on precision medicine, the professional deficit is projected to widen even more over the next decade. This new AMIA implementation track is designed to close the gap.
Who Should Attend
Individuals whose role within their organization primarily focuses upon the practical development, deployment, and management of clinical research information management tools and platforms should attend the Implementation Track at the 2016 Joint Summits on Translational Science.
These professionals could reside in academic or private-sector organizations and examples include: software implementers, functional informatics managers from NCI Cancer Centers, CTSA or CTSI affiliated programs, as well as individuals working for clinical research management organizations or bio-technology/pharmaceutical companies.
After participating in the Implementation Track of the 2016 Joint Summits, attendees should be better equipped to:
- Define why and how informatics-focused roles matter in CTSA/CTSI programs
- Implement more effective operational leadership practices in the clinical research enterprise through practically-focused direct and interactive learning methods
- Develop and adopt best practices for streamlining and improving regulatory processes, clinical trial protocols, study costs, patient recruitment, and data collection and management
- Create and sustain multidisciplinary collaborations in the biomedical research community to expand access to diverse expertise, sophisticated technologies, and unique tools and resources
