Research depends on collecting, managing, and analyzing data. To meet this critical need, the Office of Academic Computing (OAC) has served the Department of Psychiatry for decades while continuing to advance the technological capacity and opportunities of our research community. We have developed customized clinical research management systems (CRMS) integrated with data collection. With recruitment tools, online screening and consent, longitudinal assessments, automated alerts Ecological Momentary Assessments (EMA) and other research projects, our team builds integrated solutions with a high degree of data integrity, completeness, and security. We also build custom applications to control research devices, and to process and analyze high frequency signals or time series data. Research data collection methods include our secure, table-driven WebDataXpress (WDX) online forms, interactive text messaging for EMA participants, and support for mobile devices for research.
Our years of experience, along with our ability to stay at the forefront of technology, uniquely positions us to build the most efficient, effective, and comprehensive research management solutions. Emphasizing reusable code and table-driven systems means we can quickly deploy assessments across multiple platforms: tablets in research or clinical offices, home computers, or personal mobile devices. All collected data is fully integrated immediately into the full CRMS enabling us to send critical alerts, subject reminders, or staff notifications of any event.
We provide free consultations at the pre-award and post-award phases of your research study and can assist with protocol and budget development. Please contact us to see how our services may support your research.
