  • Patent number: 8671160
    Abstract: In a method for admitting an information provider to transmit information, a transmission device receives test data transmitted by an information provider, and the transmission device evaluates the quality of the test data. The test data represents information offered by the information provider. Depending on the quality of the test data, the transmission device admits the information provider to a system for transmitting information between information providers and information seekers. The transmission device then matches one or more information seekers with the information provider.

  • Patent number: 8041783
    Abstract: A method is provided for configuring medical devices such as medical devices used in a clinical trial. Based on the needs of the clinical trial, a definition of a configuration of the medical devices to be used in the clinical trial is generated and the configuration data is transformed into a profile. The profile is distributed to sites at which the clinical trial will be conducted and the profile is applied to the medical devices at the sites to configure the medical devices. The medical devices are thereby capable of producing data that is comparable as between the sites used in the clinical trial.

  • Publication number: 20070179803
    Abstract: A method is for verifying the feasibility of a medical study using acceptance criteria for patients. The method includes defining target criteria for the study. Based on the acceptance criteria, a patient collective including potential patients is selected from a database containing patient data of patients. The patient data of the patient collective are evaluated based on the target criteria. Finally, a measure for the feasibility of the study is established.

  • Publication number: 20070150223
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for verifying whether an implementation rule assigned to a medical procedure has been observed. The method includes: data correlated with the procedure is automatically entered and stored in a data processing device; test criteria for the data, which are correlated with the implementation rule, are stored in a test system; the procedure is implemented; the test system reads out the data from the data processing device; and the test system evaluates the data based on the test criteria and determines to what degree the implementation rule has been observed.

  • Publication number: 20070150305
    Abstract: During a method for selecting a potential participant for a medical study on the basis of a selection criterion, patient data assigned to a patient are electronically stored. A secondary criterion is assigned to the selection criterion. The patient data are electronically evaluated on the basis of the secondary criterion. Based on this electronic evaluation, a measure for fulfilling the selection criterion is determined for the patient associated with the patient data. The patient is selected as a potential participant on the basis of this measure.

  • Publication number: 20070143691
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for conducting a clinical study according to which an event occurs during the study that requires a collaboration of individuals responsible for the study. The method includes transmitting the event to a collaboration system. The collaboration system determines, based on parameters assigned to the event, a group of individuals responsible for the study required for the collaboration. The collaboration system provides a communications platform for the group. The group carries out the collaboration while using the communications platform. Finally, the collaboration system verifies the collaboration on the basis of predetermined verification criteria.

  • Publication number: 20070143146
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for performing a clinical study on a patient. The study-related or patient-related data is stored in a memory during the study. The memory is readable by a physician who is foreign to the study and is associated with the patient. An information system for a clinical study on a patient encompasses a memory for study-related or patient-related data, which is allocated to the patient, a data input device for storing data in the memory, and a data reading device for reading out the data from the memory. The data reading device is accessible to a physician who is foreign to the study and is associated with the patient.
