A novel open-source web-based platform promoting collaboration of healthcare professionals and biostatisticians: A design science approach


Raptis, Dimitri A; Mettler, Tobias; Tzanas, Kostas; Graf, Rolf (2012). A novel open-source web-based platform promoting collaboration of healthcare professionals and biostatisticians: A design science approach. Informatics For Health and Social Care, 37(1):22-36.

Abstract

Collaboration among clinicians and statisticians is relatively poor, with many cases leading to poor quality research, reflected by low level of evidence studies published in the literature, thus affecting the overall quality of healthcare. We have developed a novel open-source web-based platform aiming in reinforcing the clinician-statistician relationship, using an iterative design research process by involving all end-users. Evaluation of this platform by healthcare professionals and biostatisticians was highly positive, as we first identified the pitfalls of their relationship and overcame them through the use of this platform. We are hoping that this will strengthen the clinician-statistician relationship in the short term and ultimately improve the quality of research and hence the quality of healthcare in the long term.
