Application Services for Studies and Clinical Trials

MedSciNet has delivered application services for clinical trials and registers for more than 15 years.

Typically MedSciNet receives specifications from the customer, builds a web based application to handle the trial or register, tests and finalises the application in close cooperation with the customer after which the application goes live and is made available over the Internet. MedSciNet provides Operation, Maintenance and Support during the life of the trial.

MedSciNet creates and offers software-as-a-service. The software is deployed on servers located in a world-class datacenter, operated in compliance with ISO27000 and SAS-70 standards and with 24x7 monitoring. Therefore, customers do not have to worry about IT specifics such as investing in servers, storage or additional hardware.

Application Services for National Medical Registries

MedSciNet has delivered application services for (national) medical registries for more than 15 years.

Typically MedSciNet receives specifications from the customer, builds a web based application to handle the registry, tests and finalises the application in close cooperation with the customer after which the application goes live and is made public.

Registries collect a wealth of data over time. To unlock true value of data collected, data must be analysed, trends identified and the appropriate decisions taken to improve health care. Data analysis (MedSciNet Interactive Data Analysis) can be performed with a set of predefined reports, or users can interactively analyse data from multiple perspectives with OLAP tools integrated into the CTF.

CTF data integration services (MedSciNet Data Integration) can also be used to setup automatic data input for data that usually comes from other systems, i.e. lab or demographic data. This allows avoiding double data entry, improving data quality and reducing data entry costs.

As the requirements for data collected in the registry evolves so does the application to cater for the new requirements. MedSciNet performs changes to the applications in a timely manner and upon customer requests.

MedSciNet provides Operation, Maintenance and Support during the life of the registry.

MedSciNet Clinical Trial Framework (CTF)

The MedSciNet CTF provides a self-contained environment that enables customers to host, develop, support and manage several applications for clinical trials within the organisation and with minimal external support required.

MedSciNet CTF is a platform that provides many of the features required for clinical trials, medical registries, or any medical software out-of-the-box.

  • Functionality to ensure FDA 21 CFR part 11, GCP requirements compliance. Audit trails of who, when, and what actions were performed (e.g. data reads or edits) are stored in the system. A "change record" and an "authorisation" set up are also maintained in the system so that data may only be viewed by those authorised.
  • Notifications - Systems based on the CTF can inform users on the occurrence of important events such as, sending out an email to the PI when patient data is completed or when an Adverse Event form is filled in.
  • Interactive data analysis (MedSciNet Interactive Data Analysis).
  • Data integration (MedSciNet Data Integration).

MedSciNet Translational Research Integrated Platform (TRIP)

Translational research is the process of translating ideas and findings in the laboratory through to treatment or preventions in the clinic. TRIP is a medical research solution developed by MedSciNet to create a standards-based informatics platform supporting clinical and translational research.

TRIP consists of three integrated components: a descriptory meta-information component allowing the specification of what information is stored in an external database; a tool to visually create data queries that spans all available data in multiple data sources; and a data query engine to retrieve and merge data from multiple data sources, based on the descriptory meta-data, and to enable the researcher to perform further analysis on the data.
