Tutorial: meeting data access and reporting requirements with the NIH’s Biomedical Translational Research Information System (BTRIS).
April 1, 2013
The NIH Intramural Research Program’s Protocol Navigation Training Program presents:
Meeting Data Access and Reporting Requirements with the NIH’s Biomedical Translational Research Information System (BTRIS).
James J. Cimino, M.D., Chief of the Laboratory for Clinical Informatics Development at the NIH Clinical Center and Senior Scientist within the Lister Hill Center for Biomedical Communications at the National Library of Medicine.
The NIH Biomedical Translational Research Information System (BTRIS) is a repository of clinical research data collected from across the NIH intramural research program. BTRIS allows investigators engaged in clinical research to access current and historical data on subjects in their research protocols and allows all NIH researchers to retrieve de-identified data sets to support hypothesis generation and data re-use. BTRIS provides a single, unified database that integrates data from six different clinical and research record systems, as well as many ancillary clinical systems at the NIH Clinical Center, with continuous data sets reaching back to 1976 or earlier. BTRIS users can formulate and execute their own queries to obtain data sets in “spreadsheet” form for download, analysis and reporting.
In this seminar, Dr. Cimino:
- describes the kinds of data included in BTRIS,
- demonstrates how to initiate queries in BTRIS for the retrieval of both identified and de-identified data sets, and
- demonstrates how to use BTRIS to meet reporting requirements for Institutional Review Boards and ClinicalTrials.gov.
