READY-Girls

The University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing (UPSN) contracted Flipside to create a secure web portal for administering screening tools and collecting data. The portal was being used as part of a multi-year program called Reproductive-health Education and Awareness of Diabetes in Youth for Girls (READY-Girls) that was being administered at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. The system allowed for an administrator to manage a rolling admission of study participants in a de-identified manner. Each participant could then securely log into the portal and completed an extensive baseline survey that was customized to the individual participant. An administrative dashboard allowed the study administrator to monitor the progress of participants, and send out notifications when it was time to do follow up surveys. All of the survey data was collected in a standardized manner and provided to the researchers for monthly importation into SPSS.
