CLINICAL DATA ENTRY & PROTOCOL TRACKING SYSTEM (CDEPT) is a software framework designed to provide the tools necessary to rapidly develop web based data entry and data management systems for clinical trails and medical research studies. A software framework defines a model, approach, procedures and tools for creating new protocols for clinical studies. As a framework this software is able to gain efficiency by providing standard approaches and tools for commonly needed capabilities such as construction of data entry routines, validation of data, audit trails and monitoring the completeness and timeliness of data collection. However, as a framework this software provides far greater flexibility, expandability and customization than is typical in a turnkey or off the shelf application. CDEPT is designed around a three-tiered software development model widely used on Internet. This model consists of browsers, web server and database servers. This software is mostly designed to run on two major browsers Internet Explorer and Netscape.
