ResearchMatch is an NIH-funded, national registry that brings together researchers and 130,000+ volunteers who are interested in learning more about research studies. Used nationally by over 6,000 researchers this novel platform has been helpful in recruiting research participants across many research areas, and has been particularly useful for research involving rare disease, surveys, and healthy volunteers.
i2b2, or Informatics for Integrating Biology & the Bedside, is an NIH-funded scalable informatics framework that links data warehouses across partner institutions. Locally, i2b2 facilitates exploration and query of the clinical data within PowerChart that has been de-identified and aggregated. In doing so, i2b2 helps with study feasibility and cohort discovery by allowing a researcher to query various inclusion/exclusion criteria, as well as ascertain the potential for recruitment.
You have free access to these tools through the CTSI-CN, and can use them for Feasibility or actual Recruitment. This training will give you the basics so you can be all set!
