  1. 1. The SIRECS project José Ángel Expósito LosadaCatalan Agency for Health Information, Assessment and Quality (CAIAHQ)
  2. 2. Bilbao Catalonia (Population around 7.5 millions) 2
  3. 3. The SIRECS project What is it?In Catalan SIRECS stands for Information System ofCentres and Institutes of Biomedical and HealthcareResearch-It is a data repository based on a previous data registry of thepublic Catalan Universities run by the Secretary for Universitiesand Research called UNEIX (= pooling data) that is working since2002.-It is addressed at biomedical and healthcare research centresendowed by the Catalan Health Department.- The SIRECS repository has expanded UNEIX with the collectionof the data from biomedical and healthcare research centres, 3and these data have been adapted to the UNEIX way to report.
  4. 4. The SIRECS project Who is who?• The Catalan Department of Health is the driving forcebehind the project.•The Catalan Agency for Health Information, Assessmentand Quality (CAHIAQ) is the coordinator and executor ofthe information system.•The Secretary for Universities and Research runs thedatabase. 4
  5. 5. The SIRECS project Similarities with other initiatives-It is a collaboration between a research agency(CAIAHQ) and research institutions to document dataof science investment.-It collects data directly from the research centres.-Uses this data to assess the centres’ performance. 5
  6. 6. The SIRECS project Differences with other initiatives-It is focused on inputs:1.Personal data (human resources)2.Competitive and non competitive resources3.Participation in research programmes and networks- (... and outputs):4. Clinical trials. 6
  7. 7. The SIRECS project Objectives (I) To offer biomedical research centres a homogeneous management tool in the Catalan System of Research & Development To allow a better follow up of the investment made by these centres To unify the work methodology of the Catalan biomedical research centres (e.g. annual activity reports) To match the resources with the needs of established knowledge and priorities 7
  8. 8. The SIRECS project Objectives (II) To put together the productivity: relation between inputs (human, technical and budgetary resources) and outputs obtained (products) To make easier the benchmarking among the Catalan biomedical research centres To portray the research in Catalan health science periodically To provide sound data that contribute to the assessment of Catalan biomedical research centres 8
  9. 9. The SIRECS project The SIRECS role in the R & I Plan of the Catalan Department of Health. 2012 – 2015. Some of the objectives of the Strategy Plan are: To define an assessment process of research centres based on results. To invest efficiently in the excellence of research. To promote knowledge translation and asses the social impact. The aim of SIRECS is to be the tool to achieve these objectives. 9
  10. 10. The SIRECS project What is the situation in Spain?The SIRECS project is the first of its kind in Spain.It will be potentially expanded to collect research outputs other than clinical trials (i.e. publications, thesis, spin-offs, patents...), and might be also applied to other places in Spain different from Catalonia. 10
  11. 11. The SIRECS project Other global initiatives (I):• RAISS tool (RAND/ARC Impact Scoring System), UK• NIHR (National Institute for Health Research) collectionprogramme, UK.• MRC (Medical Research Council) e-Val programme, UKand Africa• SFTC (Science and Technologies Facilities Council) e-Val, UK and internationally• Collection of output data, Switzerland• Collection of output data by the Health Research Board(HRB), Ireland 11
  12. 12. The SIRECS project Other global initiatives (II):• Lattes (Brazil). A Curriculum and institutions database ofScience and Technology areas in Brazil• CASRAI (Consortia Advancing Standards in ResearchAdministration Information)  Data exchange and reusebetween research teams, institutions, and fundingagencies throughout the entire life-cycle of researchactivity. 12
  13. 13. The SIRECS projectWhat information is collected? (I)1. Personal (Human resources)2. Competitive and non competitive resources3. Clinical trials 13
  14. 14. The SIRECS project What information is collected? (II)The information is collected yearly. We are now collecting the 2010 data. 14
  15. 15. The SIRECS project What information is collected? (III)1. Personal (Human resources) - Name, National ID number, country of birth. - Research centre and date of beginning (and end) of the contract - Position (researcher, clerk, manager...) - Hours/week devoted to research, teaching, health care and management. - Educational background: (graduate, doctorate, etc.) ... Among many other 15
  16. 16. The SIRECS project What information is collected? (IV)2. Competitive and non competitive resources - Start and end date of the project - Which subsidy it is (programme, call, institution that provides the money...) - Principle investigator of the project. - Amount of the subsidy. - Is it a coordinated activity with other centres? - Is the researcher the coordinator of a multicentre study? - ... Among many other 16
  17. 17. The SIRECS project What information is collected? (V)3. Clinical trials - Beginning and end date (if available) of the trial - Unique identifier number of the trial - Who is the principal researcher - Therapeutic group of the disease according to the International Classification of Diseases (ICD 10) - Drug or vaccine group according the ATC Classification (Anatomical, Therapeutic, Chemical classification system) - Or medical device code according to the Global Medical Device Nomenclature. - Phase of the trial if possible (I, II, III, IV) 17
  18. 18. The SIRECS projectHow the information is validated? No errors or sFTP (Secure warnings File Transport Automatic SIRECS Research Protocol) validation /UNEIX Centre (2/a day) repository Errors or warnings Information Correction collected * Errors and and sent warnings report Data Exploitation * According to the SIRECS protocols 18
