Biomedical Informatics Core

Fee Based REDCap Data Management Consulting

Fees for Biomedical Informatics Services are charged on a per project basis. For the fee of $150, we offer the following services for each project:

  • 2 hours of initial consultation and training for the study team
  • 6 hours of technical assistance, including but not limited to technical meetings, discussions, data transformation and importing services
  • 1 hour/month of technical support via email, phone, or onsite

Additional technical assistance will be charged at the rate of $60 per hour (REDCap manager).

Note: Requests for additional projects and personnel necessitates re-consideration of this scope of work. Additional fees may be requested if user requests are overly complex requiring extended interventions by the REDCap team.

These items may be uploaded when completing the online support request form.

Biostatistics Core

Fee Based Collaboration

Initial consultation is free for the first hour, and appointments can be made using the online support request form. For the initial consult, please provide a draft proposal including research questions/hypotheses, aims of the study, primary and secondary (if applicable) outcomes, list of variables for which data will be collected, relevant articles, and any other documents relevant to the study. These items may be uploaded when completing the online support request form.

Estimated cost ($100/hour for PhD and $60/hour for master’s level statistician) and timeline for project completion will be discussed and finalized by both the PI and biostatistician prior to any data transfer. The PI will provide an account number and authorize charges prior to the biostatistician performing analyses. Data checks and validation will be performed by the CFRI Biostatistics Core and will be included in the cost estimate. The cost estimate will be revised if additional work is requested, or if extra work is necessary due to unexpected circumstances (e.g. messy data, etc.) not included in the original agreement.
