At MedStatStudio our mission is to provide research
logistics that makes the most valuable use of your research
time. MedStatStudio consultants can assist you in any stage from study
conception and design, data collection, data entry, analysis,
presentation, and publication. You are free to be use your skills
in any area, and allow us to support you in any others.
MedStatStudio Logistic solutions form a critical link between
methodology, data collection, and results.Our logistic support extends from research planning, data
acquisition, data storage, data analysis, presentation of
results, and interpretations of finding.
As research projects become larger, the traditional
communication system of email and memos break down. Version
control becomes difficult, and as project membership changes,
new members often have difficult getting a quick synopsis of the
project. MedStatStudio uses the WebCollab project management
software. The project management software is customized for
your project, allowing you to get to work immediately on
results, and leave the software solution to us
The link between data collection and statistical analysis can
often be troublesome. Research data is often collected in
spreadsheets, which are almost invariably unsuitable for
statistical analysis. Often, this results is hours of needless
work reformatting data tables. At MedStatStudio, we provide a
direct web based data entry system, which avoids this pitfall.
Furthermore, in most cases the statistical analysis can be
displayed on the web platform immediately after data entry,
allowing you to see your data grow and statistical conclusions
develop in real time
To see this solution in action, follow
table. Feel free to explore, edit the tables, and see the
results in real time.
There is much more to questionaire based research then simply
asking questions and passively observing the responses.
Designing a valid and reliable questionaire requires skill
and experience; a bad questionaire can render useless hours
and hours of data acquistion.In addition, as electronic questionaires become more
common, many researchers find out only too late, that the
format of the responses given by the online service are
frequently unfit for analysis, and require lengthy cleaning
At MedStatStudio we have professional statisticians to assist
in questionaire design. In addition, our comprehensive
questionaire platform is an integrated solution, combining a
web based survey design software - based on LimeSurvey, with
integrated database data storage using MySQL and just-in-time
data analysis using R.
A sample project using the comprehensive questionaire
platform is available for a fictitious disaster medicine
project called DMATT. Please explore and feel free to
answer the questionaire, change the questionaire, and view
At MedStatStudio we beleive all research should be
transparent and open source. Unless specifically prohibited by
ethical permission or need for anonymity, research projects both
past and ongoing are freely available. In many cases, data sets,
description of methodology, R code for data analysis, and published
results are available.
The project list is widely varied including many different
aspects of disaster medicine, emergency medicine, anesthesia,
critical care, surge capacity, and simulation. However,
MedStatStudio consultants are available for nearly any topic, and
we welcome your inquiries about your specific areas of research.
