Programmers and data experts, experienced in clinical research design and data management, can work with your team to develop a research project using REDCap or create electronic data collection instruments to address clinical outcomes. Our consultants will review the clinical data needs of your research project, provide feedback on study design or data capture questions, and discuss options for clinical data abstraction, reporting and storage to meet your research needs.
Our expertise goes beyond web and scientific app development with our team of systems engineers who can assist with design, building and supporting secure server and storage environments. The consultation process is flexible and includes a review of the current environment, evaluation of immediate and future needs, and recommendations for possible process improvements.
We also offer FISMA reviews and documentation.

Red Blood Cell Distribution Width and Mortality Risk: SARS-CoV-2 Infection
This paper investigates whether an association between mortality risk and elevated RDW at hospital admission and during hospitalization exists in patients with COVID-19.
A preliminary cohort for this study was constructed from COVID-19 positive patients cross-referenced with blood sample instrument files harvested continuously throughout the Boston spring surge with code authored by a software engineer consultant from our Research Computing Core, stored in ERIS’s Research File Area (RFA), and indexed in a MySQL database hosted by ERIS.
