ACT Network launches at Duke to enable easier patient cohort discovery

We're excited to announce that a new cohort discovery tool, the ACT Network, is available to researchers at Duke. The ACT Network is a real-time, open-access platform allowing researchers to explore and validate feasibility for clinical studies using electronic health record data from a national network of leading academic medical research centers. It is HIPAA-compliant and pre-approved by the Duke IRB, so using ACT does not require study-specific IRB approval.

Duke CTSI is providing the ACT Network to Duke researchers at no charge. Register and start using ACT.

Population Health Improvement Survey

The Duke Center for Community and Population Health Improvement would like to invite you to participate in the Population Health Improvement Survey.  The information collected in this survey will help Duke Health catalog and highlight the work being done at Duke to improve the health and well-being of the Durham Community.

Thank you for completing this survey.

Carolinas Collaborative now accepting funding applications

CTSAs at Duke, the Medical University of South Carolina, UNC-CH, and Wake Forest, have partnered with Health Sciences South Carolina to create a pilot program designed to encourage and facilitate novel clinical and translational research that applies or accelerates discovery into testing in clinical or population settings.

The research must use the component electronic health record data warehouses from at least two of the four CTSAs. View and download the RFA.

A webinar for interested applicants will be held on June 29 at 10:00 a.m. Register here.
