Data & Technology

Data & Technology

RHI houses specialized teams in both data services and information technology in order to support projects across our network, providing an integrated approach to data- and technology-based solutions in SCI research and clinical care.

Here are a few examples of how RHI supports research and clinical care initiatives through technology and data services:

Global Research Platform (GRP) is a secure, web-based data collection and data warehousing platform that enables researchers to improve the quality of the data collected. Most notably, GRP is the technology behind the Rick Hansen SCI Registry which operates in Canada, New Zealand, Israel and China. In addition, GRP runs studies in Australia and the US.

ISNCSCI Algorithm is a free tool that helps clinicians accurately classify spinal cord injuries. The Algorithm is based on the International Standards for Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury (ISNCSCI) – the most widely recognized assessment for determining a person's level of injury and impairment.

CliniQuick is a mobile electronic medical record (EMR) application designed to support real-time quality improvement in a clinical setting. Clinicians are able to enter patient information directly into a tablet or smart phone and review a summary of the treatment history and outcomes, eliminating the need to manually sort through stacks of cumbersome paper-based records.

We also provide data services for RHI-supported projects such as the Rick Hansen SCI Registry and Access to Care and Timing – from the point that data is entered into the GRP through to the point that it is analyzed for publications or summarized for reports.

The data team applies complex logic to make sense of the data, applying data and statistical analysis techniques so that researchers have the appropriate information they need to investigate a particular research question.

The Rick Hansen Institute is a Canadian-based not-for-profit organization that drives innovation in spinal cord injury research and care. We strive to improve the lives of people living with SCI in Canada and around the world.
