Texas Research, Analytics & Innovations Lab (TRAIL)

The Texas Research, Analytics, and Innovations Lab (TRAIL), housed within CPHA, serves as a centralized data repository to advance research, practice, and policy related to population health and aging. Data sources include those from government, health care, and industry. This large and valuable data resource will allow us to strategically engage our ~60 CPHA Faculty Affiliates (and those within the School of Public Health) to access the data to fuel grant submissions, publications, and conference presentations. In addition to the indirect costs generated from extramural funding, the TRAIL value add is enticing for partnership development, sponsorship, and donors. TRAIL provides a necessary infrastructure to obtain, manage, and coordinate access to datasets as well as orchestrate research and programmatic activities. The value proposition for TRAIL is vast and expansive, which will support faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and students. The TRAIL infrastructure is made possible by a nonendowed donation of approximately $1.6M by STATinMED Research.

CPHA is happy to be working with STATinMED Research on the TRAIL project. STATinMED Research, located in Plano, Texas, is a leading Health Economics and Outcomes research company. They provide an array of analytical and consulting services for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry using real-world data to provide accurate, reliable evidence-based solutions.

Together CPHA and STATinMED will be working with TRAIL to provide a necessary infrastructure to obtain, manage, and coordinate access to datasets as well as orchestrate research and programmatic activities. Data sources include those from government, healthcare, and industry.
