We know that data is the “jewel” of research. The ability to capture it accurately, completely, and quickly has an immense impact on the study. Our tools can help locate study participants as well as collect data throughout the study for you.
Quickly identify candidates. By developing questionnaires which specifically ask inclusion and exclusion questions, PatientLink® can quickly identify if an interested person is a qualified candidate for a particular research study. Paper questionnaires can be placed in clinics or mailed to possible candidates. Electronic forms can be completed online or using iPads/kiosks at clinics. You will then have a list of persons who want to participate, and are qualified to participate. PatientLink® makes this process fast and easy.
We can build the tools to collect, store, and analyze the data. We are happy to be involved as much or as little as you desire. Some clients want us to simply build the forms and software to send data into their database; others want us to build the forms, database, and reports. We love to collaborate and enjoy working in research. Let us know how we can help you!
Our software has the ability to score assessments as the form is processed. The ability to score assessment forms is another powerful asset of our product. PatientLink® sends the participant’s responses as well as the scores to your database.
We worked extensively with GE Healthcare to build research study tools for assessment and management of a variety of diseases. GE recognized our ability to quickly and easily capture discrete information and have the data sent in the right format to the correct place in their electronic medical record (Centricity). As you know, getting complete data in the correct spots is vital to research. That is what we do best!
Pharmaceutical companies: We have built programs to capture research data for an assortment of studies: including developing the database, questionnaires, and reports. When desired, there is the option to have us do the scanning and data analysis.
Universities: We developed an application to capture information concerning a patient’s history of cancer and treatments. The history information was sent to a database and linked with the patient’s DNA information. This application is being used to understand which DNA markers affect cancer risk or treatment options.
