REDCap is a web-based electronic data capture application. It is secure and HIPAA compliant. It is available for the use of all HSC faculty, staff, and sponsored students at no charge.

InfoEd is a university-wide electronic research administration application that enhances the full life cycle of grant funded research. The system is organized into a number of modules that offer a full set of features for both investigators and staff who work on grant funded project administration.

NVivo is a qualitative analysis tool. Qualitative research seeks to analyze unstructured information such as interview transcripts, open ended survey responses, emails, notes, feedback forms, photos, and videos. Copies of NVivo software may be checked out by CTSC Community Engagement pilot awardees for the length of their pilot funding. To obtain a copy, contact Bambi Wolf.

ATLAS.ti is a is a qualitative analysis tool. Is intended for analyzing information that cannot easily be expressed numerically or statistically. Copies of ATLAS.ti may be checked out by CTSC Community Engagement pilot awardees for the length of their pilot funding. To obtain a copy, contact Bambi Wolf.

VIVO is a research networking tool that enables the discovery of researchers across institutions. It is an open source semantic web application. At UNM, VIVO has been installed and is currently being populated with the interests, activities, and accomplishments of HSC researchers.


ROCKET is a web-based tool for sharing information and documents, allowing members of a workspace to collaborate by building and sharing web pages. ROCKET workspaces, often created around a specific project, are meant to be dynamic and user-friendly. Members can easily edit and maintain the workspaces themselves per the needs of their group. Any member of the CTSA Consortium can request a workspace.

i2b2 (Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside) is an NIH-funded initiative for Biomedical Computing. The intent of i2b2 is to enable clinical researchers to use existing clinical data for discovery research and, when combined with IRB-approved genomic data, facilitate the design of targeted therapies for individual patients with diseases having genetic origins. This initiative currently enjoys wide international adoption by the CTSA network, academic health centers, and industry. UNMH is in the process of implementing i2b2 in conjunction with its Cerner system.


WebCamp is a Web-based application tailored to administrative computing needs at clinical research centers in general, with specific functionality for support annual reporting at CTSA-awardee institutions.
