Un-Meeting: Exploring the Inclusion of Community Hospitals in Clinical Research. Thursday, May 27, 2021 11am-3pm ET

Registration Open for NCATS Un-Meeting

Join this Un-Meeting to discuss activities that can be started and sustained during the interpandemic period, so that when a significant public health emergency arises in the future, community-based environments can seamlessly participate in joint projects to address the threat. 

Other potential topics include:

  • Identifying opportunities to build models of outreach to better include community hospitals for recruitment and enrollment into academic clinical trials.
  • Identifying ways to increase participant diversity.
  • Inclusion of community hospitals or community groups in academic research activities.

Introduction to CM-PRISM Webinar

Common Metrics – Program Results to Improve Strategic Management, aka CM-PRISM, is the new data reporting software platform for CTSA Program hubs to report their annual Common Metrics data and narratives. This new platform was built in REDCap, which is familiar software to many hubs across the consortium. This new platform has the flexibility to accommodate multiple users from each hub and to ease the burden of data entry.

The goal of this new platform is to increase the consistency and comparability of hub data across the consortium. CM-PRISM has been designed to support the updates made by the Informatics and Careers Metric Quality Improvement committees.

Two “How to Use CM-PRISM” webinars have been scheduled. Hubs are encouraged to register for the webinar that best fits their schedules. The webinars will be recorded and can be accessed on the Common Metrics Webinar page.

Thursday, May 6 at 2 pm ET ~ OR ~or Monday, May 17 at 3 pm ET.

New N3C Learning and Discussion Opportunity: The Enclave Users’ Group

Not sure how to go about identifying which patients in the N3C Data Enclave have had COVID-19? Want to get your COVID+ patient counts to match the numbers on the Enclave homepage dashboard?

The Enclave Users’ Group (EUG) has been created as a community-focused forum where members can share practical information on techniques, tips and methods in the N3C Data Enclave. Each session will have one or more presenters sharing a topic and encourages live Q&A, discussions and networking with new people.

The first session will take place on Friday May 7th at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET with a presentation by Shawn O’Neil and Saad Ljazouli titled Identifying COVID Positive Patients. This webinar will demonstrate the logic needed to identify patients as “COVID-positive” at first diagnosis and the identification method that was used (PCR/antigen test, antibody test or diagnosis code). The webinar will also provide information on how to customize the definition for your own analysis needs, as well as tips for analysis in Contour and Code Workbooks.
