I-CART is an online resource management tool (origin name SPARC) that was created at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and has been adopted by multiple CTSA institutions throughout the country. These sites have formed a consortium to further develop the functionality of SPARC. Ongoing efforts are led by MUSC, Iowa, and Utah as the application moves toward an open-source environment. This will allow for more impactful improvements to the user experience.
