OMNITEC has implemented the leading data-sharing infrastructure at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), helping it share data from billions of dollars of public investment in mental health and substance use research.
Through our efforts with the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Data Archive, we’ve implemented a research data-sharing platform adopted by over 700 diverse research labs across many research domains. The research field is now adopting standards in genomics, imaging and complex neurosignaling experiments defined by OMNITEC. Today, data from these labs have shared data from over 150,000 research subjects to a common standard. It can be done!
And data sharing is only the beginning. Through organizational approaches, a research subject identifier approved by Health and Human Services, and extensive data quality processes and pipelines, OMNITEC is helping the NIH lead the way forward providing simple methods to share the data supporting a finding or publication.
Through the data-warehousing platform implemented by OMNITEC, the NIH and peer-reviewed journals can now validate research results, an elusive tenet of the scientific process.
