WHAT IS LUMOS?
Lumos! is an electronic Case Report Form (CRF) software and a Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS), based on the web, which has been developed to simplify and speed up the data collection, the implementation and the management of medical research, in evaluating patients’ response to a new experimental treatment or drug, or conducting a demographic analysis on health-related behaviors.
But which challenges does Lumos! tackle?
1. DESIGN e-CRFs
With Lumos!, doctors, academics and researchers can design questionnaires (Case Report Forms), implement collaborative multicenter studies, such as clinical trials and other epidemiologic studies, and monitor the research teams easily and quickly.
2. CHOOSE A STUDY DESIGN
Lumos! facilitates the development of complex study designs that integrate data coming from both the clinicians/researchers and the patients.
3. COLLECT DATA FROM PATIENTS AND PHYSICIANS
The researchers are provided with personal credentials for access and will be able to fill in and send the information obtained with the forms. Alternatively, patients can answer the questionnaires directly with the use of a simple web or mobile interface.
4. KEEP YOUR DATA SAFE
All data are stored safely on a server of choice. Lumos! provides AES256 encryption, secure communication protocol, password policies, automatic backups etc.
5. MONITOR YOUR STUDY
The researchers can manage and monitor the project implementation with reports and analytics, add new cases, conduct searches, export their questionnaires, and check the status of patients who have participated in multiple studies.
ADVANTAGES OF LUMOS!
Following EU recommendations, we ensure the privacy of our clients and their patients with AES-256 encryption and secure transmission of the studies’ data, the possibility to store the data on your own server or on our 24/7 monitored dedicated servers, patient privacy management, informed consents, password policies, backups.
Should you need a server, we can set up one for you at a very convenient price: Lumos! can run on our secure servers, leaving the hassle of the management to us.
The easy and intuitive interface allows doctors and patients to comfortably use the platform: no specific computer skills are required!
It is possible to work even offline. When online again, Lumos! synchronizes offline data with those stored on your server.
Lumos! focuses on both small teams of researchers and physicians, and larger research centers, networks and enterprises. We can adapt the platform to meet different needs, and develop custom solutions based on your requirements.
Lumos! is a Web-based software, and thus can be installed on any Windows, Linux or OSX system. It even runs on iPads and other tablets! Moreover, data can be exported in other formats, and used for further analysis in programs like Excel or SPSS.
Lumos! doesn’t need additional configuration in case of large amount of data: after discussing together your needs, we set up the software and the server accordingly.
It’s possible to create questionnaires (Case Report Forms) made of custom fields, and combine fields from different questionnaires. You can also use computed fields to automatically calculate test scores and scales.
