Provide guidance and support to faculty and staff who want to explore and develop innovative ways to use technology to meet their teaching objectives.
The Informatics team at the School of Medicine and Public Health supports departmental needs as well as the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research and Carbone Cancer Center. The group is dedicated to optimizing the conduct of high-quality clinical and translational research and providing the needed computational and informational infrastructure for investigators at UW-Madison and Marshfield Clinic. They assist investigators during project conceptualization, grant submission, and deployment of secure data storage and processing methods.
A new School of Medicine and Public Health initiative aimed at advancing researchers’ capabilities in computational research. The goal is a seamless data storage and computing system for high-throughput and specialized computational research.
Assist investigators with developing data queries and securely delivering data to support research, including feasibility assessments, recruitment of participants, pilot studies, and retrospective analyses.
Assist investigators during project conceptualization, grant submission, and secure data storage & processing methods to optimize high-quality clinical & translational research and provide investigators with computational & informational infrastructure.
Real-World Data & Linkages
Our team supports using real-world data (RWD) analyses to generate real-world evidence (RWE) to support the translation of research and clinical trial findings to real-world environments.
GRC and ISO
The ISO and GRC teams manage the data communication network that serves the departments, institutes and centers that comprise the School of Medicine and Public Health. The group is responsible for maintaining fast, reliable network connections on the UW-Madison campus and at several remote locations. The group also implements security safeguards to protect transmitted data including protected health information in electronic form (ePHI).
Governance, Risk, and Compliance
Our focus is to implement security safeguards to protect transmitted data including protected health information in electronic form (ePHI).
Infrastructure Security & Operations
We are responsible for maintaining fast, reliable network connections on the UW-Madison campus and at several remote locations.
Classroom and AV Services (CAVS)
Support for SMPH classrooms/conference room, room reservations, equipment rental and support for live events.
Supports servers and virtual server infrastructure, including supporting workflows to move and automate movement of data on and off of those locations.
End-user support for administrative units as well as a growing number of other departments, particularly in the basic sciences. Also provide support for units looking to implement Wiscweb sites, and support for all conference rooms.
