Development of a national website for Clinical Studies Sweden

The purpose of the initiative is to create a joint website that makes collaboration easier and improves the opportunities for relevant target groups to partake of the support for clinical studies offered by the regional nodes within Clinical Studies Sweden. The aim is to develop a website that fulfils the digital communication needs that Clinical Studies Sweden has, in terms of development initiatives, information exchange and a joint platform for developed digital tools.

Background

Clinical Studies Sweden has a need to inform about support functions and results from development initiatives on a joint website. A platform is also needed for digital tools, developed to support clinical studies (such as tools for coordinated study feasibility requests).

Implementation

To begin with, we will carry out analysis of our stakeholders, needs, and contemporary environment. Based on these analyses, a requirement specification will be developed, describing the technical needs for the website. This will form the basis for development of the website. The analyses carried out will also form the basis for the website contents. An important part of the implementation is to spread information about the new website to the relevant target groups.

The initiative is also investigating the opportunity to create an intranet in conjunction with the external website, to share information and strengthen collaboration between the nodes.

Goals

The initiative shall result in:

  • improved opportunities for the relevant target groups to partake of the infrastructure for clinical studies offered by the nodes within Clinical Studies Sweden
  • fulfilling the digital communication needs that Clinical Studies Sweden has, in terms of development initiatives and a joint platform for developed digital tools (for example tools for coordinated study requests)
  • facilitating collaboration within Clinical Studies Sweden.

Time plan

The development initiative started in Q4 2019 and is expected to be completed in Q4 2021.
