ACT Network Launched at Georgia CTSA

The Georgia CTSA has partnered with ACT Network to bring real-time cohort exploration and discovery to its researchers. ACT uses a web interface in a HIPAA-compliant manner, without requiring study-specific IRB approval. It offers open access to a national network of academic medical research centers and generates aggregate patient count data. Emory and Morehouse School of Medicine researchers can now explore patient populations, confirm and demonstrate feasibility, and find potential partners for multi-site studies. Access for Georgia Tech and UGA researchers is in the planning stages. For more information, visit the ACT Network website or email
