Creating a Community: HEAL Data Ecosystem Virtual Workshop
The NIH HEAL Initiative® hosted the “Creating a Community: HEAL Data Ecosystem Virtual Workshop” on April 20, 2021. HEAL-funded investigators and NIH program staff had the opportunity to learn more about the HEAL Data Ecosystem. They also met the awardees (University of Chicago and Renaissance Computing Institute and RTI International), and asked questions during panel discussions. Workshop speakers presented important information to help inform HEAL-funded investigators about central data-related efforts and resources. They also learned how to connect their data to the HEAL Platform. The presenters discussed making data findable and accessible and identified key data-related issues. Watch videos from the workshop:
Part 1: Benefits and Possibilities – Discover how data from current HEAL Initiative programs can serve as a launch pad for future studies, collaborations, and new programs.
Part 2: Data Security – Learn about the HEAL Platform, which is designed to provide the necessary security and compliance to help researchers explore the full breadth of data being generated within the HEAL Initiative.
Part 3: Available Support – Learn about the specialized data management consulting available to HEAL studies to aid in achieving data-sharing objectives in a coordinated and efficient manner.
HEAL Initiative Data Asset Inventory Report
Data Asset Inventories (DAIs) contain records describing the data assets maintained by an organization, and allow companies to collect metadata on their data assets and data types. They can also include information about volume, storage, and sharing practices. The HEAL DAI was deployed to collect such information on HEAL awards. The inventory generated considerable engagement between the NIH HEAL Stewards and HEAL investigators and their teams, with approximately 18% of all HEAL awards (as of 07/26/2021) submitting responses. The distribution of the various scientific Research Focus Areas among DAI respondents roughly mirrored that of all HEAL awardees. The inventory revealed existing gaps in the HEAL ecosystem’s data processing and management efforts. Additionally, the resulting analysis clarified several general areas where researchers need assistance, including repository selection, metadata collection, and public access and data sharing plans. The key findings of the DAI are summarized in the NIH HEAL DAI report.
