UDig’s software application expertise provided faster, more reliable access to a database of DNA information for 143 genes associated with cancer. The resulting improved data sharing allows clinical researchers to create highly personalized treatment strategies based on past successes, measurably improving and reinventing cancer treatment strategies.

UDig Provided

  • Custom App Development

Challenges

  • The National Institute of Health (NIH) as the parent organization for the National Cancer Institute (NCI) relies on repeatable analysis of cancer, patient and treatment data for the effective treatment of the disease.
  • The existing technology infrastructure and software development did not provide easy, reliable access to historical data.
  • In order to provide highly targeted treatment plans based on comparable data according to individual requirements, a web-based, searchable access point was required.
The new solution uses rules-based decisioning and enables a more efficient course of patient treatment.

Solution

  • UDig web development expertise built an user-friendly web-based access point to the DNA database working with a broad team of end users including clinical researchers.
  • The new solution uses rules-based decisioning, enabling a more efficient course of patient treatment. In addition, the system provides flexibility to add new data as new treatments, clinical trials and successful case studies occur.
  • Access to the database provides the biomedical research community efficient access to specific details of treatment plans and success rates allowing for a dramatic cost and time savings, avoiding inaccurate diagnoses and related treatments.
