Our programming core provides a variety of services. These services include:
Scientific research needs are frequently not met by Microsoft Office and other off-the-shelf software packages. The CDS programming core can craft custom web, desktop, or mobile software to help run your project. Whether it’s to manage study participants, track specimens, provide a web-based intervention, or create a study-wide digital dashboard, CDS has the experience you can count on to fill your needs.
The CDS programming core can create web sites to provide a basic web presence, help you recruit study participants, or to integrate disparate systems. Need the ability of participants to email questions, integrate with social media, or track page views and clicks? Do you wish purchase a project domain? CDS can provide all that, and deliver a single integrated solution.
The CDS programing core has data management and project management specialists with considerable experience helping to coordinate and manage clinical trials and other research studies.
CDS can ease the burden of collecting data using REDCap EDC software. Using REDCap, the CDS Programming Core can help you collect data using electronic CRFs and surveys, contact and randomize participants, and manage the workflow of clinical trials and other research studies, complete with audit trails.
We offer two programming rates:
Many solutions may require a hybrid that contains some data form/survey programming and some custom programming. In these situations, you will pay the appropriate rate for the delivered component.
CDS programmers have more than 20 years’ experience in collaboration with researchers and have expertise in:
A selection of projects that we have collaborated with over the past 5 years include:
"We have been working with the Collaborative Data Services (CDS) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center for over two years now. CDS serves as the Clinical Coordination and Data Management Center (CCDMC) of a NIH-funded biomarker clinical study. CDS was able to establish an online data site and evolve that site to meet the changing needs of our study. This was not a task taken lightly, as it involved the coordination of four clinical sites, with clinical and laboratory components, combined with Governmental rules, regulations, and oversight. This process involved the creation of study specific forms, data sheets, enrollment monitoring, and extensive communication. There were times when a 9 to 5 schedule was not an option and this was productively met with enthusiasm and professionalism. The CDS leadership and staff are competent, collaborative and accommodating. We look forward to completing this project and starting the second phase; not only for the scientific value of the project, but also continuing our relationship with CDS at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center."

"CDS developed interactive data collection tools for use in three of our NIH funded multi-center R01 research grants. This work included web-based surveys, reporting tools, and an interactive digital whole-slide pathology viewer which serve as the face of our research when participants directly interact with these products. We have received only positive feedback from participants regarding these tools, especially the slide viewer, which highlights the skills of CDS. Most importantly, however, CDS are fun to work with, being truly collaborative and often suggesting inventive ways to develop solutions. We consider them valued members of our research team."
