Emory Research Subject Registry

Emory’s Library & Information Technology Services (LITS) Research Solutions Team supports the Emory Research Subject Registry.  The Emory Research Subject Registry (ERSR) is a web-based application that provides a central place to track and manage study enrollment and subject participant data for clinical research studies. The application features a service oriented architecture that allows integration and synchronization of events and shared data with other research systems, such as REDCap (for longitudinal research data capture), Emory LIMS (for research specimen management) and a Salesforce implementation for study participant recruitment

LIMS - OpenSpecimen

Emory’s Library & Information Technology Services (LITS) Laboratory Solutions team supports the OpenSpecimen application as part of Emory's enterprise-wide Bio-Banking infrastructure. OpenSpecimen is a HIPAA-compliant, web-based biobanking platform that streamlines the process of sample management, primarily collected and tracked for research purposes.  It provides a central location for researchers to enter, track, and retrieve data for the collection, storage, quality assurance, reporting and distribution of biospecimens.  OpenSpeciman is a flexible and easy to use application geared toward cost saving and short implementation time.  The implementation of OpenSpecimen at Emory is intended for investigators and laboratory staff to be able to configure and manage most autonomously, with support available from the LITS Laboratory Solutions team if needed.
