AR Comprehensive Research Informatics Suite (AR-CRIS)

The AR Comprehensive Research Informatics Suite (AR-CRIS) is a robust, multi-application research platform consisting of a group of web-based applications capable of functioning together to facilitate study center operations. These study center operations include, but are not limited to, research data collection, data submission, data analyzing, auditing, and reporting, achieving and maintaining quality data submissions. Through the use of platform integration, any of the platforms can be combined to enhance research data collection and storage for almost any type of clinical research, including single and multi-site trials and all applications are integrated into a portal allowing single-point access. Several additional platforms are currently under development to add to this suite and its capabilities. More detailed AR-CRIS application and integration workflow summaries are available within the CRIS application tutorials.
