TRI Helping UAMS Researchers Obtain Credentials for VHA Data

The Translational Research Institute (TRI) has established a mechanism that will help UAMS investigators obtain the credentials necessary to use Veterans Health Administration (VHA) data repositories in their research. The VHA is the United States’ largest integrated health care system with more than 1,700 sites of care, serving 8.76 million veterans each year. This integrated health network allows investigators to explore a wide range of research questions. TRI is providing funding for administrative and programmer support to assist with credentialing and preliminary technical support. To learn more, contact TRIservices@uams.edu.
