Development of a Responsive Web Application for Integration of a Prediction Model Used in a Clinical Decision Support System

 

CBmed, an Austrian funded competence center, links scientific experts with leading pharmaceutical, diagnostic, medical-technology and IT industry partners. CBmed has a strong European network in the area of biomarker research including Biobank Graz, the largest Biobank in Europe.

 

Overview

The aim of the project is to develop a clinical decision support system for critically ill patients based on existing and new biomarkers monitored by biosensors. Cooperation partners include the Medical University of Graz and B.Braun Melsungen AG, a medical device manufacturer. A first outline and visual concept of the clinical decision support system already exists.

 

Goals and Tasks

The main goal is to develop a graphical user interface based on international state-of-the-art recommendations and insights from health care professionals stationed at intensive care units of LKH-Univ. Klinikum Graz. As a second step, a mathematical prediction model developed at the Graz University of Technology Institute of Health Care Engineering will be integrated. Mobile up-to-date IT equipment is provided by CBmed.

 

Deliverables

- Implementation of a web application including data interfaces

- Integration of the mathematical model providing prediction of parameters   based on user input

- Source code documentation

- General considerations regarding medical device classification

- Small-scale usability test

 

Starting latest by October 2017, the expected duration for completion is six months.

 

Prerequisites of the candidate

Programming skills in web development, especially HTML5, CSS, JavaScript/Typescript and AngularJS are required. Knowledge in MySQL, MATLAB and R is of advantage.

 

Benefits for the candidate

The candidate will gain experience and insight into clinical research at a K1 competence center. The ability to work at the interface of industry and science will provide a substantial background for the individual professional track. The candidate will be offered minor employment for the time of the thesis including a monthly salary of € 425,70 gross. Employment is currently limited to six months. Testimonial is provided after completion for personal proof of records.
