Customized Data Collection

Our original, prospective studies allow investigators to identify and obtain the specific data necessary to answer important research questions. When developing questionnaires, our clinicians and statisticians collaborate to ensure that data collection will be feasible, informative, and powerful. We work with both electronic and paper-based data collection systems, gathering information from a wide range of health care sources: doctors, technicians, nurses, insurers, and patients. Agile data collection is enhanced with ArborLink, a flexible online data entry platform created by Arbor Research that functions seamlessly across languages and cultures.

Rigorous Standards

Whether designing a system for original data collection or drawing upon existing functional databases, our approach to data management is rigorous and comprehensive. We are committed to meticulous methods for handling data to ensure that information is clean, complete, and secure.
