Data Manager, Webmaster
Chuck Jacobson maintains the Research and Clinical database called INFORM. This IRB-approved database is used to gather information on our patients’ disorders, how their medical and surgical treatments are helping them, and various demographics. The power of the INFORM database comes from the multidisciplinary nature of our team and the fact that nearly all of the patients who visit our physicians want their information to be used to further our clinical research. In 2019, we will have over 12,000 patients with a variety of neurological movement disorders in the INFORM database.
Chuck supervises multiple pre-med volunteers and three part-time staff who assist with data entry, data quality efforts, preparation of questionnaire packets for clinic, and editing of videos from clinic visits.
Chuck developed this website for the UF Health Center for Movement Disorders & Neurorestoration and now maintains and updates it.
