Configurable Without Custom Programming
RexStudy adjusts to the evolving requirements of complex, longitudinal research, making it easy to quickly add new studies, new instruments (forms) and data elements, new operational workflows (often in less than a day), and new interactive data exploration interfaces. RexStudy provides the ability to configure research workflows to streamline data entry and import for center staff. Since configurability is inherent to RexStudy, our solutions are flexible enough to adapt to changing conditions and support your research for decades to come.
Manage New Studies, Labs, User and Data Types
With RexStudy, research staff can quickly add new users, studies, forms, research assets (appointment rooms, sample types, legacy ID types), sites, and data marts. RexStudy provides a powerful web API, essential for any research data repository, that supports programmatic access and includes advanced query and data transformation functionality. Integration with third-party EDC tools, such as REDCap or Qualtrics, is simplified by APIs, including native support from the Research Instrument Open Standard (RIOS).
Data Exploration Across Sites, Cohorts, and Time-Points
RexStudy alleviates the tension created among optimal ways of organizing data by leveraging a key clinical research informatics concept: Data Marts. Organizing common analytical tasks into data marts boosts system performance by reducing unpredictable load on the central database. Ad hoc queries are submitted against role-specific data marts, thereby insulating the transactional system from heavy and unpredictable spikes. The result is a fast, responsive, and enjoyable user experience during the collection, curation, and exploration phases of study. Better yet, data can be selectively reorganized to simplify querying by a particular class of users for a particular purpose. As a result, queries are faster to construct and more closely align with users’ understanding of the data.
