Navigation Tool Speeds Up Data Location
Save Site Locations for Fast Revisit and Ease of Navigation
One of the most difficult things to learn about a new system is how to “Navigate” through all the different pages to find the information users are looking for. CREDIT© and it’s sister systems (IDEA and IRBANA) have a tool that helps staff revisit previously viewed data pages. The name of this tool is the “Navigation Man”, and the right to use it needs to be earned.
When the “Nav” button is clicked, a popup window appears that allows for saving the current location or immediately navigating to some other data location. In the example to the right, one click takes the user to the Patient Demographic page for a specific patient. Optionally, one click launches the patient protocol page for the specific staff.
Many Pages have the “Nav” Button Available
The upper right corner of this page has the “Nav” button for linking to other pages within the system.
Navigation Links Reside in Popup Window
An unlimited number of links can be stored. Here we are offered to store the location of P-2. Other saved links are listed and available for clicking and immediate navigation to the selected page.
Clicking on the Link to this Patient Demographic Page
CapWhenever the Navigation Link is clicked, the entire listing of saved locations is presented. This is much like a browser “Favorites”, but much more powerful. The web site remembers every detail of how the original navigation occurred. For instance, it remembered the institution and the associated protocols. As shown above, staff clicked on the link to this Patient Demographic page while on the Protocol P-2 page. Immediately the navigation was to this patient page.
Click on the Nav Link Illustrated Below for Patient Protocol
The link noted above results in navigation to this patient’s protocol page for calendar review and IRB forms retrieval. Even Height, Weight, and BSA can be calculated and saved from this page. Patient event calendars are also available in a variety of formats, including the traditional monthly layout.

The DDOTS Navigator is published to introduce news that has occurred in the ongoing development of Cancer Research Environmental Data Information Tracking (CREDIT)..
Since 1995 CREDIT© has been in constant growth. May of 2006, marked the 11th anniversary of this powerful system. Installed at sites across the country, CREDIT© is the leader in Collaborative Clinical Research Administration.
Web Demonstrations Available On-Line at No Cost to Staff!
Probably the easiest way for interested staff to see CREDIT is to have an On-Line demonstration. This is accomplished by contacting technical support at DDOTS by phone or email to: email@example.com Plan on about an hour when staff can assemble around a computer or, better yet, in a conference room where a projection system can display the demonstration.
At the agreed upon time, a representative from DDOTS will call your selected station on the phone for the audio portion of the presentation.
Advanced planning is the key to the demonstration. Make a list of important elements that staff needs to see. Be sure to forward the list to DDOTS about a week before the demonstration is to occur. All elements from the list will be incorporated into the presentation.
