Metabio’s advanced solutions provide the platforms for Biobanks, Healthcare providers, Clinical Research Organizations and Researchers to work independently or seamlessly alongside existing systems, in a plug and play or customized mode of action.
Data-mining - Researchers can locate specimens with specific profiles from a broad spectrum of data (clinical, environmental, disorder-progression, analyses) in real time among separate biobanking entities, without compromising patient rights or IP issues. Metabio provides data cohort-information, including total sample availability across numerous associated biobanks. The ease and speed with which data and samples can be located increases their value to the researcher and biobank equally.
Upon entry to a clinical facility (hospital etc.), patients are provided with the opportunity to enroll in our e-consent program. This gives them the ability to monitor and manage their status at anytime, and all of the involved entities are immediately informed of any change in status. These changes are immediately implemented in the access-rights of associated samples, thus streamlining the response to any regulatory or legislative developments. We believe this is key to on boarding both patients and aligning with future trends in personalized medicine and patient-privacy. By giving patients complete control over the use of their physical data we ensure the ownership and usage-scenarios for this most precious resource.
Due to lack of industry protocol and language standards, sample data is entered using a broad range of terminology and abbreviations. Metabio’s searchable database harmonizes the data received from every source to HL7 or openEHR standard - essentially fixing one of the major challenges faced by researchers, and increasing the efficiency and sales for biobanks.
This is accomplished without changing any part of the internal systems that hospitals or biobanks use. The longitudinal tracking of data does not require significant effort in resources, capital, or mode of work from the entities involved - Metabio’s system tracks records and manages the data as it is produced.
Our solution is designed specifically with the above factors in mind - all functions and features support the basic model of value-add via enrichment and harmonization.
