At HCI, we built this cutting-edge software in-house, thanks to the spirit of teamwork and collegiality between clinicians, researchers, basic scientists, and software engineers," says Samir Courdy, director of HCI's Informatics Department.
The CCR is already integrated with several systems, including HCI's bio sample tracking system.The goal is to link with more in the future, including pharmacy records, molecular databases such as microarray, and imaging.
"As the CCR grows, it will help researchers and clinicians share information more efficiently," says Courdy, "hopefully leading to drug discoveries, better patient therapies, and identification of disease-causing genes."
