Description

Developed at Medical Research Council UK to meet a common clinical trial need to track various types of clinical data. Users log dates of completed tasks against participant ID. Simple, useable, reduces lost data! Makes graphical progress reports.

Features

  • Software tool tracks progress and completion of medical tests performed on participants during a clinical study. Front page has ‘file folder appearance’ which allows for easy, understandable data entry.
  • Software allows for study coordinators to set up the tool at beginning of a study based on participant identifiers, the names of medical tests and the names of processing steps for those activities. The application is NOT designed to hold individual medical test diagnostic results but rather to date track when the test was completed.
  • Application tracks changes made to the data by identified users or participant identification number for a complete audit trail
  • Progress reports can be quickly generated as graphs or tables for meetings even called at short notice
  • Importing core data (participant identifiers) can be done through manual data entry or in bulk by spreadsheet by using the Administration Tool
  • Easily deployed as a standalone application or as a component of another software application
  • Tool can be re-configured for another study by a non-programmer which promotes re-use of the tool
  • Rapid prototyping through an in-memory demonstration feature allows the tool to be quickly re-configured for future clinical studies
  • Minimal feature set allows for inexperienced computer users to run the tool in a minimum amount of training time. Good for emerging worldwide organisations
  • Software assumes multiple users will be inputting data, therefore the tool tracks data entered by each identified user as an audit trail which can be printed. In addition the tool can identify error prone users which may require further training
  • Designated users can be added or deleted at any time through the Administration Tool should staff change
  • Designed for clinical studies with a limited budget who cannot afford bespoke or commercial software tools
  • In depth software design explanation for developer use
  • Planned software exit strategy to spreadsheets should tool is no longer required
  • Software design and open source license allows clinical studies to share main code base without requiring them to expose sensitive information about their study
  • Software tool allows for junior staff to do work normally done by more experienced workers saving considerable cost
  • Reduces lost or incomplete data in clinical trials because tool shows the progress of each participant individually
  • Support data migration should projects need to expand
  • Exporting core data (participant identifiers) can be done via the ADMINISTRATOR TOOL
  • Generates clinical study forms from an XML configuration file that holds definitions of activities, activity steps, database table names and database configuration details
