Informatics Key Function Committee


The CTSA Informatics Key Function Committee will ensure successful implementation of informatics support for all CTSA functions by sharing knowledge, expertise, and resources. To ensure efficient and effective collaboration and sharing among clinical and translational researchers and their research partners globally, the CTSA Informatics Key Function Committee will recommend and incorporate the appropriate standards and best practices necessary for broad interoperability while ensuring privacy and confidentiality protections for human participants. The CTSA Informatics Key Function Committee working with appropriate communities will strive to set a national example in adoption and use of clinical research informatics and technology to support clinical and translational research.
