Database Solutions

The Research Data and Technology Group is a small, agile and fully certified team of programmers and network administration personnel who excel in developing and implementing innovative database and technology solutions with a fast turnaround. We have expertise in data capture, integration, and conversion; study management; tracking databases, public data releases; and web-based applications. Coordinating Center computer systems are hosted on a high-speed, secure network that includes two dedicated data centers, 24/7 network monitoring, and back-up redundancy. Our systems are implemented following a 21 CFR-compliant validation process.

Research Data System©

RDS© is the data collection and study management system used by our multi-center studies and clinical trials. RDS© uses TeleForm® for data collection form design, with a web-based front end and SQL back-end for data tracking, querying, editing, reporting, and study administration.

Medical Inventory Forms©

MIF interfaces with RDS© and allows studies to track and adjudicate medications.

Adjudication Tracking System©

Adjudication tracking databases are used for outcome ascertainment studies. Studies can assign adjudicators and track, bill, and monitor adjudication events. If desired, databases can interface with RDS© to share data and initiate event adjudication in real time.
