Public HRA Reporter: A platform to make some data from HRA’s grant database (now called HRA Analyzer) data publicly available
In pursuit of the Health Research Alliance’s (HRA) strategic goal of collecting and sharing comprehensive data and analysis about nonprofit funding for biomedical research and training, we are implementing a flexible and configurable search module to the Dimensions platform which is the platform on which HRA Analyzer runs. We are calling HRA’s implementation of this module HRA Reporter. HRA Reporter will allow public visitors to search through a subset of the HRA member grant data housed in HRA Analyzer. Please see the Bladder Cancer Funding Analyzer for a demonstration of the power of this tool.
Data in HRA Reporter
HRA recognizes that some HRA members have constraints on the data they can publicly display. Thus, HRA Reporter will have:
- The ability to exclude some members entirely from showing. This would allow a member to have their data show in the private HRA Analyzer, but not in public HRA Reporter.
- The ability to hide award amounts for members who want to appear in the public HRA Analyzer. This would allow a member to include award amounts in the private HRA Analyzer, but not in HRA Reporter.
Development of the Public HRA Reporter
Contacts at each member organization will be designated. These contacts will be responsible for confirming the level of participation with which the organization is comfortable.
