IT Roundtable
Share |


The Clinical Research Forum considers the integration of information technology (IT) and clinical research a high priority for its members. The IT Roundtable was initiated in 2005 and has continued to be one of the Forum’s most engaging initiatives. Roundtable meetings provide a venue for academic health center leaders to share experiences and work with vendors to address key IT issues in clinical research such as the interface of clinical services and clinical research data, warehousing, data security, electronic health record platforms, and governance.
