The patient recruitment system is intended for centralized patient database management and analysis to determine the patients suitable and available for clinical studies for AstraZeneca researches. The goal of the project was to systematize and enhance the process of COPD patients’ information gathering and recruiting for studies.
AstraZeneca uses System Integration Platform built on top of WebSphere MQ server to unite a number of corporate systems. The platform serves as a key repository for company information providing rich functionality for storage, maintenance, collaboration, and search for AZ employees in different locations. First two versions of Systems Integration Platform were built in-house. Further development was outsourced to Sigma Software.
