Common Metrics Initiative

While the CTSA Program is charged with accelerating and improving clinical and translational science, the potential impact of the CTSA Program is only partially realized, to date.

In order to maximize the CTSA Program consortium’s impact, NCATS has implemented the Common Metrics Initiative (CMI). The CMI is based on the principles of the Results-Based Accountability (RBA) framework and is a collaborative process with the CTSA Program hubs used to develop, implement and report on specific metrics that are common across the consortium. The vision for NCATS' CMI is to use specific, common metrics to demonstrate and improve the impact of the CTSA Program. The CMI uses this set of metrics to help focus network and hub activities on making significant, measurable improvements in translational science and research, and workforce development.
