The CFAR Network of Integrated Clinical Systems (CNICS) offers access to the first electronic medical records-based resource network poised to integrate clinical data from the large and diverse population of HIV-infected persons in the modern HAART era.
CNICS supports HIV clinical outcomes and comparative effectiveness research. Data is collected from patients receiving care at one of eight US-funded Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) sites. CNICS captures a broad range of information associated with the rapidly changing course of HIV disease management.
CNICS addresses scientific questions that cannot be answered through other collaborative cohorts. CNICS collects comprehensive patient data including validated outcomes, longitudinal resistance data, and detailed patient reported outcomes (PROs) with readily available biological specimens.
