The VA Information Resource Center (VIReC) is funded by VA’s Health Services Research & Development Service. Our mission is to advance VA capacity to use data effectively for research and quality improvement and to foster communication between research data users and VA’s healthcare community. VIReC products and services enable researchers to learn about VA data and information systems. Our staff have expertise in informatics, research methodology, and database content areas. VIReC provisions Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data for VA research use and manages VA REDCap data collection software. We also provide training through our publically available cyberseminars.
