Research IT Governance & Support

 

Meeting the Needs of Research and Education

 

graphic describing the structure of IT leadership

 

The School’s 2017 review of the organization and alignment of data science and IT stressed the need for a “One Duke” approach to both leadership of those efforts and resources allocated to them. The School established a governance structure to ensure voices from all its key activities – education; basic, translational, and clinical research; and administration of that research – are heard and that specific IT needs are addressed.

The School’s IT Leadership Committee determines strategy and priorities informed by four IT Councils – Medical Education, Basic Science and Translational Research, Clinical and Population Health Research, and Research Administration. The IT Councils also determine tactical priorities and monitor the quality of execution as they interact with the Chief Academic Information Officer (CAIO). The CAIO brings to bear resources from Duke Health Technology Solutions as well as School- and University-based capacity to deliver needed service and expertise.
