caBIG® Clinical Connector

Product Description

The caBIG®Clinical Connector (formerly C3D Connector) provides a semantically integrated service layer via caGrid that allows users of a Clinical Data Management System (CDMS) to expose functions within the CDMS. The exposed service layer uses a BRIDG-based model and defines service operations (including patient registration and loading of laboratory test data) that can be implemented by a CDMS.

The Clinical Connector for C3D has a Administrator's User Interface. Administrators can use this application to manage the Clinical Connector settings and Login credentials to be used by the patient registration process.
