MEMIC maintains and supports tools to help with your research data management.
Ldot; safely store personal data
Conducting scientific studies can be very challenging, in particular if you take into account all relevant privacy and security related laws and guidelines. Ldot can help you with all logistics, so you can focus on your actual research data. Ldot improves the quality of your study by helping you to conduct all steps from your study protocol, whilst being compliant with laws and guidelines like GDPR and GCP.
Ldot supports the study workflow by indicating which actions should be performed for which study subject at what moment in time. Ldot can be configured to give this information in different ways: as Email notifications, Text messages, as action list and via a graphical calendar. Particularly in studies with a larger number of participants and/or studies with more complex or longitudinal schedules, Ldot can be of great help. Also in multicentre studies, the use of Ldot is recommended.
Ldot is build and maintained by our GCP qualified software developers. It is specifically designed for storing privacy sensitive information. In combination with an expanding amount of data collection tools (e.g. Castor, Qualtrics, ZorgTTP, etc.) it can keep track of your entire research flow and data collection.
