The Research Information System

The HDSI Team is designing a high-performance, cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant Research Information System (RIS). The RIS will allow researchers to work with biospecimens, genomes, clinical patient data, and other sensitive PHI. The RIS will offer cloud storage and has the capability to collect, process, analyze, and visualize your data. The HDSI Team will work with you to tailor your virtual environment to your research specifications.
