If you are interested in ICTR Informatics Core service support for the services below, use your UMID to log in to our ICTR Core Service Request web page and complete the ICTR Core Services Request Form (developed in REDCap).
REDCap: Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) is a UMB ICTR-supported resource widely used by Clinical & Translational Science Award (CTSA) institutions. REDCap allows users to build and manage online surveys and databases quickly for research studies and operations. REDCap Survey Example
Qualtrics Survey Tools: UMB has a campus Qualtrics account that is available to faculty, staff, and students at UMB at no cost. Qualtrics is an easy-to-use online survey software that’s powerful enough to perform even the most sophisticated research.
Open Text TeleForms: TeleForm automates the collection, evaluation, and validation of data collected by scan-able forms. With the help of OpenText TeleForm designing software, CTRIC offers our researchers custom designed forms. Data collected on these forms can be scanned into the TeleForm system to be read by its character recognition software. TeleForm increases efficiency and accuracy in the data entry process. Data can be exported to datasets in many different formats (SAS, SPSS, Excel, Access, and more).
Other UMB Campus Resources
Constructing Custom Databases. The UMB Clinical and Translational Research Informatics Center (CTRIC) can organize all of your study data into a cohesive, easy-to-use database. Databases can be constructed in a variety of different formats (MySQL, PostGreSQL, Microsoft Access, etc.) based on the needs of your study. Secure, HIPAA-compliant storage also is available. For more information, go to the CTRIC or email firstname.lastname@example.org. UMB faculty needing the service may be eligible for additional support through the ICTR Voucher (micro grant) Program.
Research Data Management Services: The Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HSHSL) Research Connection program can help you develop a data management plan. Many funding agencies require plans for managing data with grant applications. Following best practices in research data management can help you, your lab, or your center secure grant funding and create data output that becomes part of the scholarly record.
