NeuroBANK™ is the flagship platform for collecting data on patients that participate in natural history studies, or in multiple projects within a disease consortium. Data collected during a clinical trial is important to the advancement of research, however, to understand disease progression without the bias of an experimental therapy, first you need natural history data to create a vision of the natural course of a disease. These natural history studies are the backbone of clinical research and are becoming increasingly more powerful, and valuable, data sets. The use of our Global Unique Identifier (NeuroGUID™) and System-specific Transactional Anonymous PIN (NeuroSTAmP) tools allows a patient to be followed throughout the course of their participation while maintaining privacy between projects.
NeuroBANK™ was conceived with the idea to empower, enhance and accelerate the understanding of neurological diseases. By providing a secure and robust data collection system that enables comparative effectiveness, the CIB hopes to accumulate a large data set to provide to researchers to mine and analyze allowing them to learn more about neurological diseases, as well as reduce study costs and create best practices.
