AAST Data Collection Tool

  • Please note, you will be directed to the AAST website when clicking on the link above.
  • The AAST Data Collection Tool is a unique online data portal that can be developed for your study, and assist with data storage and access.  The AAST Data Collection Tool is facilitated through a contract with INFOTECH. The use of this portal provides for improved collaboration and storage of data. There is, however, a cost associated with the development of an online data entry portal specific to your study. A discounted cost of $6,000 is required from the investigator (or other investigator secured source such as a grant or scholarship) – to be paid to EAST, who will then provide payment to INFOTECH via AAST (this discount applies only to EAST Approved MCTs).

    • After payment has been received and processed, the program designers at INFOTECH will assign a team that will work closely with you to develop a portal that meets your specifications. As part of this process, you will be called upon to Beta test the developed portal. PLEASE TAKE GREAT CARE DURING THIS PROCESS, as once finalized, any additional future changes to the database will incur additional cost to the investigator. EAST will invoice the appropriate party for any additional incurred expenses. 

  • If you have any questions or need assistance regarding the AAST MIT Data Collection Site please contact:  Jermica Smith at   


The above are examples of Data Collection Tools.  Please explore your institutional research resources as they may already have a Data Collection Tool, or a subscription to REDCap.
