Common Metrics Initiative

In order to maximize the CTSA Program’s impact, NCATS is developing and disseminating a set of Common Metrics (CMs) for use by the CTSA Program hubs as a tool for collaborative strategic management.  The CM initiative aims to capture data related to important functions and activities of the CTSA Program.

 

The CMs are intended to help the CTSA Program make significant and measurable improvements towards achieving strategic goals in two main categories:

  • Clinical and translational science research workforce development
  • Excellence in clinical and translational science research.

 

The CTSA Program aims to achieve these goals within the network, collectively and at the hubs, locally. The CM initiative intends to show how the strategic management of translational science research can directly lead to demonstrating and improving the impact of the CTSA Program and improve public health.
