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.

fig3: Web interface sections and functionality.

Mentions: The Web Platform architecture (shown in Fig.3) is structured in two different sections: Clinical section and Research section. By using the Clinical section, with a user friendly and intuitive interface, physicians are able to record, modify and view patients’ results. On the other hand, the research section is used to extract and export information according to the requirements. Referring to the first activities, the process is structured in a few passages and almost all web page contents are dynamically loaded. Physicians are able to access the Centre’s Patients list, from which a patient can be selected to display further details. The Clinical section main menu shows patient details and it is organized as follow: unique identification number of the patient, last and first name, date of birth, gender, date of the last visit, center Id, and three buttons linked to demographic data, clinical chart and delete function pages. The web page “Patient’s Clinical chart homepage” shows a summary of specified patient activity (visits, diagnoses, Intravitreal/laser/surgery treatments, clinical studies) that the system automatically loads from the list of the Clinical Events associated with the selected patient. As soon as there are more than two visits, ETDRS score letters and mean Central Macular Thickness (CMT) are plotted onto two separate graphs in the clinical homepage.FIGURE 3.
