Now, more than ever, health research is critical. FSU is taking bold steps to establish and grow institutional capacity to support health data research. Learn more below.
What is the Health Data Sciences Initiative?
The Health Data Sciences Initiative (HDSI) is FSU's strategic approach to ensure health research is an institutional priority. Through investments in cyberinfrastructure and research data resources, the HDSI continues to expand health research capabilities. Click the link below for history, timeline, and contact information.
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.
REDCap: Secure Data Capture, Survey Design, & Database Management
REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a free web-based research survey and data management application infrastructure that provides secure data capture. FSU Researchers will have access to this tool free of charge.
