Eye on the Prize: Visualizing Data for Diagnostic Success
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects almost 5 million people in the United States annually. This lifelong disorder has long term impact on social and communicative functions. The effects of ASD are often inevitable as early diagnosis is key to ensure effective management of symptoms. Diagnosis requires advanced instruments and extensive training, limiting its availability.
One such instrument is an eye tracking device that assess presence and severity of ASD in children as young as 16 months. This instrument provides objective, quantitative measurement of visual attention in the child which is then analyzed and sent to physicians.
A subset of a prominent children’s hospital needed a way to manage the teams, data and deliverables that were produced by this project. They came to ClearObject, and we delivered Collaborative Lifecycle Management, Rational Quality Manager, Rational Team Concert and DoorsNg, allowing them to assign tasks, permissions, run reports, develop and link testing procedures, maintain traceability, link issues and defects, comply with FDA requirements and communicate more effectively.
Our service model offered several unique attributes that helped make this program successful. ClearObject takes care of updating the software regularly, scaling the usage based on need, providing a dedicated environment and maintaining server health. We took a flaw in the delivery of quality care (long term training and scarcity in equipment, resulting in missed diagnosis), and helped a team improve and enable their healthcare providers.
