September 1, 2020
The data services offered by the Center for Health Informatics (CHI) within the Department of Biomedical Informatics have been restructured to reduce complexity, lower costs and increase throughput. There are now additional services available (see comprehensive chart below).
The CHI is a university service core that is subsidized by the CCTST. All services that fall under the “Standard Services” category is 50% subsidized by the CCTST at a fixed cost, within a reasonable scope of effort. This is a change from the previous “20 hour credit per investigator”. To earn the 50% subsidized (discount) rate, you must simply be a CCTST Member.
By involving faculty from BMI or budgeting core services on grants, many fees are waived. BMI has successfully helped investigators win grants by having BMI faculty associated with the grant. Alternatively, you can budget CHI services in the grant. Either way, including ‘clinical informatics expertise’ may help grantsmanship and ensure the data needed is assured.
Service requests are now facilitated by a new ‘shopping cart’ method similar to other online shopping experiences. Users will no longer start the process at the CCTST website, but will utilize the CHI Researcher Portal.
Each user will have their own personal portal where you can review your orders, check the status of a project or request additional services. The portal is designed to facilitate the majority of your clinical research data needs. The CHI works very closely with the Office of Research/IRB to ensure you acquire the highest quality, compliant data at the most affordable rates.
Note: Your requests are now approved by department business managers within the workflow. To request data, you must also agree to the ‘terms and conditions’ at checkout.
Hourly rates outside the standard service options have changed since last year:
- Data Services: $89.00
- Application & Technology Development: $89.00
- Health Analytics: currently, no services provided
