Present: Sylvie Frisbie, Juvena Hitt, Kairn Kelley, Rodger Kessler, Ben Littenberg, Connie van Eeghen, Jon van Luling
Start Up: Jill Jemison and Pamela James (support staff for this application) from COM Technology Services.
1. Discussion: Research Collaboration Network: “The Commons” http://commons.med.uvm.edu/
a. This is a document sharing platform, based on SharePoint, with supportive features:
i. Calendars (may be more than one) – can be viewed through Outlook but not vice-versa
ii. Announcements (straight text)
iii. Subfolders of documents
iv. Knowledge Bases: wikis for self-publishing that supports links
1. Includes version control, for back version capture
2. Links to OneNote, including highlighting, printing (with stylus), and drawing
v. List tools
vi. Discussion Boards
vii. MS Office Suite
b. Also includes simple surveys, inside the domain (e.g. faculty)
c. Limited to 100G of storage to start with; may be expanded
d. REDCap is run through CCTS in the CoM; not sure of future linkage. This Intranet can hold the data from REDCap but does not replace REDCap. (Not directly imported at this point.)
e. Stata’s high speed server is more protected (less ability to provide access); VCHURES is also on the Stata server. There may be a “window” provided from the Intranet to this server.
f. The Intranet is NOT the place for PHI; keep it on a more secured server. More coming in the future.
g. Security of the files meets the standards set by FAHC (firewalls with “incursion boxes;” development of policies and memoranda of understanding with every investigator)
h. “Group” Application: patient centered research collaborative with UVM and community members, as well as researchers from other organizations
i. Can use non-UVM email addresses
ii. Set up as a separate account through “Account Request” form
i. Request: a 3rd party email application that notifies the users of updates and displays the new discussion/item
2. Next Workshop Meeting(s): Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m., at Given Courtyard South Level 4. Remember: the first 15 minutes are for checking in with each other.
a. July 17: Rodger – Vermont Integrate Profile validation
b. July 24: Kairn – Lit Review
