BIOSPEC Details

BIOSPEC© is a web-based biospecimen inventory management system for all hospitals, laboratories, oncology programs and other medically-related facilities involved in the establishment and management of bio-repositories..  As bio-specific medicine moves into the forefront of approaches to develop individualized treatments based on pathologic, genetic and molecular characteristics of human tissue, it is increasingly apparent that inventory management and tracking systems are critical for specimen access and sharing.  

BIOSPEC© is currently under development with an expected launch in mid-2016.  In keeping with the DDOTS’ framework of partnering with clients to ensure state-of-the-art software design, BIOSPEC© is being produced in collaboration with St. Joseph Hospital in Orange.

As a stand-alone system for all elements integral to bio-repository inventory management, BIOSPEC© completes DDOTS’ comprehensive web-based programs for complete clinical trials management.

BENEFITS

BIOSPEC© is a user-friendly, intuitive software program that employs the most current bio-specific approach to categorize, inventory, track, and report  tissue and blood/serum specimens required in today’s highly technologic approach to individualized treatment design.  DDOTS partners with users or “member” organizations to ensure the development of software that is user-friendly and relevant in today’s research environment.

SUPPORT SERVICES

DDOTS offers full support services including:

Installation and an individualized roll-out plan.  The BIOSPEC© IT team works with you each step of the way to design and implement an installation plan that considers what is best for you, from research program, repository staff to your institution's IT departmental needs.

On-site training  as well as individualized web-based training.  Recognizing that it is never easy to adapt to new software irrespective of the “user friendliness” of the program, DDOTS conducts on-site training for staff concurrent with the installation of BIOSPEC© to provide the support necessary for a successful transition.  Web-site training is available on an ongoing basis.

Unrivaled technical support.  DDOTS recognizes that critical to our success has been our commitment to provide the best technical support in the field – and in this regard we remain steadfast.  We are resolute in our promise to provide a quick response when needed – staff should not have to wait 24 or 48 hours to get an answer.   Just ask BIOSPEC© users; we’ll be happy to provide a list of references.   And there is never any charge for technical support.

 

AFFORDABILITY

Today’s health care milieu is one of unmitigated cost containment pressures irrespective of top notch technology to aid work product efficiency and effectiveness.  DDOTS understands the institutional need to limit capital outlay and has designed its clinical trials software pricing accordingly.

It can be argued that BIOTEC© is the most affordable biorepository inventory program on the market.  There is no purchase required.  

The annual licensing fee for BIOSPEC© is $9,500 as a stand-alone system, or only $3,000 when integrated into CREDIT©.    As always, the number of affiliates and staff covered by one license is unlimited.
