Launching a registry can feel daunting but is actually easy with proper planning and the right platform. On February 9th, 2021, Genetic Alliance announced Registry Bootcamp — a new program designed to help advocacy organizations launch a successful registry. We offered our first Registry Bootcamp course in Spring 2021 and are currently running our second course, with additional opportunities forming for later this year and next. Resources offered in the Bootcamp are wide-ranging, and provide hands-on training to enable organizations to work through the various steps necessary to design and develop their own registries. Each group accepted to Registry Bootcamp will receive the support and guidance needed to successfully create and launch a registry. Communities who elect to use Genetic Alliance’s registry solution, the Promise for Engaging Everyone Responsibly, will also receive access to the required infrastructure to launch a registry (IRB application writing assistance, in-house IRB review, the data platform, EHR connectivity, etc.). However, use of PEER is not required to participate in Registry Bootcamp.
