This software application facilitates clinical trials that test the efficacy
of new drugs/treatments for TB-HIV. As a large amount of data is captured and
analyzed, TRC wanted to move from a paper-based data collection and analysis
system to a fully computerized one, which would enable them to manage larger
sample populations of patients and enhance the efficiency of the staff managing
these trials across multiple sites.

The capture of patients records began by their filling 73 CRFs (Case Report
Forms), which were processed through different phases of automated workflow,
namely an Assessment Phase, Intensive Phase, Monthly Phase, Continuation Phase
and DOTS/ Non-DOTS Phase. Additional supportive functions of the application are
Alerts, Reminders, Queries, and an internal Mail Box. This application automates
registration, enrolment, consultation, laboratory tests, patient case dockets
(electronic case history), task scheduling/lists, and all other features related
to clinical trial protocols, besides providing dashboards, reporting and data
export to SAS. The application uses .NET Framework 2.0, C#.NET and ASP.NET, with
SQL Server 2000 as the database.
