Fourth in a Series - Next Generation ELN Requirement #4: There needs to be a pro-active mechanism that notifies users on topics of interest as they are added to the repository

Posted by Michael Price on Aug 9, 2013 8:00:00 AM

Another long standing feature in the KineMatik ELN, a user can create a spider query based on a topic of interest, called a “Prospector”.  The user defines simple parameters, similar to the search capabilities defined above and others such as a date range for when the prospect is active, as the search criteria. If a Prospector identifies information that matches the user’s search criteria, provided the user has the appropriate permissions to that item, it then adds the corresponding item to a result list where it can be accessed.  Working with Prospectors also involves organizing and deleting results. When creating a Prospector, the user can also set its result list options, which include the number of results displayed and the order in which the results are listed, based on closest match and/or ranking.  The user can also choose whether the ELN shows or hides summaries of the resulting list items. Notifications can also be created that emails the requesting user each time the result list is updated.

Third in a Series - Next Generation ELN Requirement #3: File interchange formats need to be standardized for the exchange of knowledge, information & data that are completely independent of vendors &

Posted by Michael Price on Aug 5, 2013 8:00:00 AM

KineMatik strongly believes in adoption of open standards, and as such will work within the framework of any reputable group whose mission is to define standards for data interchange with ELNs.  The KineMatik ELN currently supports the XML (Extensible Markup Language) for data export/import and communication with any 3rd party system that supports the XML standard.

First in a Series - Next Generation ELN Requirement #1: ELNs need to incorporate a Knowledge Management (KM) strategy

Posted by Michael Price on Jul 29, 2013 8:00:00 AM

KineMatik has already adopted this philosophy by building our ELN on the foundation of OpenText Content Server, a Knowledge Management application.  Content Server contains a functionality that addresses the common requirements for Knowledge Management, and indeed is currently being branded as an Enterprise Information Management system, as it extends beyond simple knowledge management.    OpenText Content Server is a comprehensive platform that allows for knowledge management through searching, classifying, navigation and collecting all corporate knowledge in a single, secure, Web-based repository.

What does FDA Section 522 mean for Medical Device Companies?

Posted by Katherine Austin on Jan 21, 2013 7:00:00 AM

“Section 522”: FDA Can Order Extra Studies from Medical-Device Companies in Special Cases 

Medical devices can cause adverse effects that weren’t anticipated either by the manufacturers or by regulatory agencies. High-profile cases have included metal-on-metal hip replacements and transvaginal surgical mesh. According to the Government Accountability Office, there were about 3,500 medical device recalls from 2005 to 2009. Many of these were ranked as “Class I” recalls—in other words, they involved a defect serious enough to create a "reasonable probability of adverse health consequences or death."
