Academic Clinical Research IT

Our award winning medical research software enables internet-based medical research and team science to accelerate discovery of new cures and better treatments.

The CLIRINX software has flexible licensing models to make it cost-effective for academic medical centers and non-profits. Our engagement model is very simple -- We manage all the IT requirements for your research study.

The software allows you to manage and collect medical research data using a sophisticated, web-based system. It consists of a medical research management system (CTMS), a CRF/Form Designer for electronic data collection (EDC), a patient registry, and an electronic patient portal (ePRO), which includes an electronic Patient Diary.

Our software and services will minimize your study start-up time and suit your budget. The system is easy-to-use and rich in features, and without the high costs or limited features of other vendors' systems.

Electronic Data Collection for Clinical Research

The CLIRINX platform has been designed specifically for medical research conducted at academic institutions. Patient enrolment and data collection use sophisticated web-based forms. Specimens can be tracked and patient files can be uploaded. Patients enrolled on the study can record data too, using scheduled forms and/or a diary. Details of telephone/email contacts with patients can be logged. Study tools include reporting, study dashboard, forms designer, data verification/queries, surveys, workflows, document library and much more. Security and privacy measures include secure login, role-based access, SSL encryption, data edit history and an audit log. Data can be extracted in a variety of formats. A separate data warehouse can be queried using business intelligence and reporting tools. The API can be used to extract data using 3rd party applications. We are confident that the CLIRINX system has all the essential features you'd need to support your research studies.

AI for Clinical Research

CLIRINX is one of the very few IT companies in medical research that provides sophisticated Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools for clinical research. CX Expert can be used to help with decision-making and solve complex problems in medical research. Expert systems are computer applications that combine software and specialized information to imitate expert human reasoning and advice. As a branch of AI, expert systems can provide discipline-specific advice and explanation to their users. We also have a knowledge base (KB) editor, CX Knowledge, that allows you to define and store complex structured and unstructured information about a specific area of knowledge, called a knowledge domain. Whereas the expert system defines knowledge in terms of if-then rules, the knowledge base editor provides a curation tool where knowledge can be defined in terms of a hierarchy, attributes and facts.

Our Experience

We have provided IT leadership and vision for some of the largest medical research projects undertaken in the USA. We have worked with PIs at 30+ top-tier medical institutions in the USA, like the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), New York University (NYU), the Mayo Clinic, Boston Children's, Cleveland Clinic and Columbia University. It is this unique experience CLIRINX brings to your research studies. These studies include the Epilepsy Phenome/Genome Project, the Human Epilepsy Project and Epi4K. These are global, multi-site research studies that relied on sophisticated web-based IT systems to facilitate electronic data capture, data integration and analytics. We understand the IT challenges facing medical research today, and CLIRINX delivers the most sophisticated and economical systems to significantly improve data quality and reduce IT costs.
