National database for research into rheumatological diseases
SCQM (Swiss Clinical Quality Management in Rheumatic Diseases) oversees the database showing the development of disease in rheumatic patients in close cooperation with the rheumatological clinics. The SCQM research project is supported by well-known companies from the pharmaceutical industry: Roche, Abbott, ESSEX, Wyeth, Bristol-Myers Squibb
The aims of the project:
- Data collection and data processing: statistical analyses
- Quality measurement and information for patients and doctors
- Data source for research purposes: Measurement of the effectiveness of medication
The solution is based on the open source application server Zope/Plone and offers a customised solution, which has already stood the test in comparable research projects.
The online database is developed jointly by seantis gmbh and ZiteLab ApS. ZiteLab specialises in solutions for data processing in research and is, alongside others, developer of the national Danish rheumatology database.
