The deadline is the end of April 2009 for those under the Stimulus Grants.  Read the last sentence in this post, data, yes data and forms of electronic health data is included!  It is all about software. 

Electronic Medical Records are in fact beginning to play a major role with Clinical Trials and Research, Science and Clinical coming together under common grounds as it no longer stands to be separated as that only defies the ability of both areas to progress.  Recently I wrote about Amalga, the hospital aggregator program from Microsoft doing exactly that relative to clinical trials with my interview with Steve Shihadeh, Vice President of Microsoft Health Solutions Group.  BD

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institutes of Health has put out a call for certain new grants it will fund with money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and it is outlining some areas it will support with the funds.

These grants are designed to help investigators "to address these unique challenges by addressing new avenues of research in defined areas where progress would produce a significant impact on biomedical or behavioral science and/or health research," NIH explained.

These programs will vary but could include development and use of clinical registries, clinical data networks, and other forms of electronic health data.
