Our autism app received more praise—this time for the collaborative effort that made it happen. Each year, Duke recognizes university and health system employees as Teamwork award winners for contributions to Duke and Durham. Bringing together 25 faculty and staff from across 11 schools and departments, the iiD-led app project is the epitome of interdisciplinary teamwork.
“This collaboration across the various teams enabled us to quickly deliver a robust, high-quality app that will significantly impact our understanding of autism,” read the nomination from Paula Morrison, assistant dean of application development at Duke’s Office of Research Informatics. “A bonus side effect of this project is that we have all built collaborative relationships that will serve us well in the future.”
