„IT Center for Clinical Research, Lübeck“ (ITCR-L) is a central facility of the University of Lübeck (UzL). Its main Goal is to improve the availability and exploitability of patient care and research data for clinical and biomedical research while simultaneously assuring confidentiality and a valid informed consent management. It operates on the interface between the UzL and the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH), each with its own IT institutions, e.g. ITSC (IT Service Center) and the UKSH ITSG (IT Service Company).
The ITCR-L does not operate its own computer or network infrastructure, but uses depending on the nature of the research applications the services of the two above-mentioned facilities. The UKSH ITSG and the ITSC assume each the hosting of the software Systems.
