If I were to tell you that, a year from now, your data collection needs will be exactly the same as they are today, you’d probably tell me I was crazy. And you’d be right!
The truth is, I’d be surprised if your data collection requirements were the same three months from now, let alone a year. The blood and marrow transplant (BMT) field, like other healthcare fields, is always advancing.
New treatments, regional trends, research initiatives, grants… all of these impact your BMT center’s data collection requirements. Ideally, your data management system should be able to account for these developments in an agile and timely manner, but, all too often, this is not the case.
Many BMT centers manage their clinical data in spreadsheets or homegrown systems that aren’t equipped to scale as data requirements change and grow. Integrating new data fields in an organized fashion then becomes a major undertaking and the inertia that results translates into lost opportunities for discovery and insight.
Our cloud-based Liaison BMT registry solution, on the other hand, was specifically designed to roll with ever-changing data collection requirements. In addition to providing a standard set of forms that cover our customers’ common use cases, our solution is also extensible, supporting an unlimited number of custom forms to tackle any localized initiative a center desires.
Our specialized architects have a long history of designing custom forms that not only suit centers’ unique data collection needs, but also maintain overall system organization and integrity. These custom forms can be manual in nature or configured to pull data from external sources such as EHR systems or Excel files.
