Among others, customized reports, simplified workflow based on a ‘one-click’ solution, automatic monitoring of visit numbers, automatic upload of data and interface with other software products, are offered.
Multi-layer training approach
Given that QST procedures depend on subjects’ responses, the results can be affected by the exact nature of communication between the study staff and subjects, thus the importance of a well-trained study staff cannot be underestimated. Other elements in the testing procedure also require hands-on experience. For example, how the thermode is attached to the skin and in which orientation, can also modulate results. Medoc offers a harmonized training approach that will assure adequate training, including IM presentations with a live demo on stage, hands-on training during the IM and at the sites, webinars, and self-training protocols.
Ongoing, comprehensive support
Technical support during the entire study duration, replacement devices, and a dedicated project manager that is responsible for coordinating all Medoc study-related activities, including on-going testing, training and re-training, technical support, logistics, clinical support, etc.
