DADOS platform is a web-based application for electronically collecting and managing data related to treatment outcomes. The clean and intuitive interface allows clinics to collect data from their patients within a clinic setting. The flexible administrative backend of the platform gives users complete control over subject information and collection schedules and also includes useful reporting and tracking tools. DADOS is an intuitive yet flexible solution that gives both research teams and clinicians what they want while providing a perfect balance between high regulatory compliance and the best of breed functionality.
The application was initially implemented within various clinics and programs at the University Health Network in Canada. Designed to handle prospective clinical research and patient-reported outcomes, the DADOS Platform is developed, maintained and supported by the Electronic Data Capture Program at the Techna Institute.
DADOS is currently used in clinical and research practices linked to prostate cancer treatment at UHN. It is being used as an essential tool to digitally monitor a patient’s health-related quality of life (HRQOL). To monitor patient HRQOL regularly and continually, prostate cancer treatment and follow-up health care clinics require a practical and systematic process of data capture and analysis. DADOS eliminates the traditional paper questionnaire format for data capture, which for many reasons is problematic for both the clinicians and researchers.
