Bottom Line: There are two different modalities to extract records: one for the patient's own center, in which personal details are shown and the other for statistical purposes, where all center's anonymized data are visible.The Web-platform allows effective management, sharing, and reuse of information within primary care and clinical research.Furthermore, this Web-based application can be easily employed as an electronic clinical research file in clinical studies.

ABSTRACT
This paper intends to present a Web-based application to collect and manage clinical data and clinical trials together in a unique tool. I-maculaweb is a user-friendly Web-application designed to manage, share, and analyze clinical data from patients affected by degenerative and vascular diseases of the macula. The unique and innovative scientific and technological elements of this project are the integration with individual and population data, relevant for degenerative and vascular diseases of the macula. Clinical records can also be extracted for statistical purposes and used for clinical decision support systems. I-maculaweb is based on an existing multilevel and multiscale data management model, which includes general principles that are suitable for several different clinical domains. The database structure has been specifically built to respect laterality, a key aspect in ophthalmology. Users can add and manage patient records, follow-up visits, treatment, diagnoses, and clinical history. There are two different modalities to extract records: one for the patient's own center, in which personal details are shown and the other for statistical purposes, where all center's anonymized data are visible. The Web-platform allows effective management, sharing, and reuse of information within primary care and clinical research. Clear and precise clinical data will improve understanding of real-life management of degenerative and vascular diseases of the macula as well as increasing precise epidemiologic and statistical data. Furthermore, this Web-based application can be easily employed as an electronic clinical research file in clinical studies.

fig2: Example of the multi-level structure.

Mentions: “Fig. 2” shows the conceptual framework developed. In detail, it is structured on a three-level hierarchical structure: Clinical Events, Categories, Parameters (with Unit of measure). Results are appropriately contextualized for the patient and for the time of measurement. For example, information concerning the “Letters score” and “Axis” are parameters that are grouped into the “Visual acuity” Category that belongs to the “Eye examination” Event.FIGURE 2.
