Abstract:

QUANTECH, INC. PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN INTERACTIVE MICROCOMPUTER SYSTEM TO ANALYZE OUTCOME DATA FROM RANDOMIZED THERAPY TRIALS. THE SYSTEM, WHOSE INTENDED AUDIENCE CONSISTS OF STATISTICIANS AND OTHERS FAMILIAR WITH DATA ANALYSIS, WILL EMPHASIZE MODERN, ADVANCED STATISTICAL METHODS IN THE ANALYSIS OF BINARY AND SURVIVAL DATA. AN OPTIMAL BALANCE WILL BE PROVIDED BETWEEN USER FRIENDLINESS, SOPHISTICATED STATISTICAL AND GRAPHICAL METHODS, AND MACHINE POR-TABILITY. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL SPECIFY THE FEATURES OF A DESIRABLE SYSTEM AND DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF BUILDING SUCH A SYSTEM BY CREATING A PRELIMINARY VERSION. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES ARE TO IDENTIFY STATISTICAL, FILE MANAGEMENT, AND COMMAND FUNCTIONS AS WELL AS THE ADP ENVIRONMENT WHICH PERMITS SYSTEM OPERATION AND PORTABILITY. IN PHASE II, THE FULL COMPLEMENT OF STATISTICAL METHODS AND CONVENIENT COMMAND AND DISPLAY FEATURES WILL BE ADDED TO THE SYSTEM WHILE AVOIDING EXCESSIVE RELIANCE ON MACHINE-DEPENDENT FEATURES. BY FACILITATING ACCESS TO SOPHISTICATED METHODS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF BINARY AND FAILURE-TIME DATA, THE SYSTEM WILL HAVE BROAD COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS. THESE INCLUDE CLINICAL RESEARCH IN CHRONIC DISEASE, BASIC BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH AND RELIABILITY STUDIES ON PHYSICAL SYSTEMS, AS WELL AS STUDIES PERFORMED BY DRUG COMPANIES AND MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS.
