Provision of a secure on-line clinical diagnostic review of patients with skeletal dysplasia

In collaboration with Certus Technologies Inc we developed a case manager system. This is a secure on-line submission and discussion system that allows a group of geographically disparate experts to work together in silico. It also allows clinicians from anywhere in the world to submit patients cases for expert clinical review.

Although initially developed for ESDN and skeletal dysplasias this system can be applied to any medical (and non-medical) subject that requires on-line submissions, discussion and tracking of samples and results. Indeed, the use of such a system has been incorporated into several recent bids to DG SANCO to established Networks of Centres of Excellence in Rare Diseases.
