Global Research Platform

Global Research Platform

Providing access to a robust source of data on individuals with SCI creates the foundation for high-powered clinical trials and the potential to validate best practices. Such datasets become increasingly useful as more individual patients are included, and their progress monitored over time as they pass through the health care continuum from acute to community-based care. To help support this, RHI has developed a powerful web-based tool – the Global Research Platform.

What is the Global Research Platform?

A simple turn-key solution for electronic data collection, the Global Research Platform (GRP) is a secure, web-based data collection and data warehousing platform that makes the technology component easy, while increasing the quality of data collected.

As a Rick Hansen Institute innovation, GRP is designed to help accelerate research by providing an easy, flexible platform to help researchers run studies with a minimum of effort and funding. In production since 2011, GRP runs in more than 20 multi-site studies, national registries, quality improvement studies and international studies and currently includes more than 5,000 individual study participants.

International collaborations are underway with research groups in the United States, Europe, Australia, China, Israel, New Zealand and others. GRP has flexibility, usability, scalability and high security.
