The resource information will be made available to the CTSA community in a variety of forms, including a search tool and widgets for CTSA hub websites to enable regional discovery and dissemination. This project aims to create a variety of dashboard views and data feeds to help both technical and non-technical team members, as well as community members navigate to the information of most interest or salient use to them.
Engagement with the CTSA hubs and Center for Leading Innovation & Collaboration (CLIC) has to-date primarily been focused upon identification and acquisition of relevant information. Much of this work in Phase II was conducted in the context of the Science of Translational Science (SciTS) platform. The emphasis in Phase III within this project framework will focus on collaborative exploration of annotation of hub web content, and specification and provisioning of micro services (widgets) into hub information environments.
Each component of this project has already-established community collaborators driving core use cases. In addition, focus groups for each component are convened as a means of driving iterative cycles of development over the six months of Phase III. The majority of the activities are not software development per se, but rather information modeling and integration exercises.
