InfoPro Systems has played an important role in the following health studies:

The National Children's Study (NCS) conducted by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NIH/ NICHD) was a planned large-scale, long-term study of U.S. children and their parents designed to study environmental influences on child health and development. The NCS Vanguard (Pilot) Study began in 2009, testing methods and procedures planned for use in a larger Main Study. When recruitment ended in July 2013, the Vanguard Study had enrolled approximately 5,000 children in 40 locations across the country. The planned NCS Main Study would have followed 100,000 children from before birth to age 21.

InfoPro was tasked to adopt and enhance CHITA, a CDC/NCHS GOTS, for the NCS needs. InfoPro integrated CHITA data collection platforms with several third-party case management systems, including BFOS (Westat field management system) and SugarCRM (open source COTS). In parallel InfoPro developed and successfully delivered DCAS case management system enhancements to cover all project requirements. InfoPro significantly enhanced the DCAS data collection tools to support NCS protocol, including rosters and nested loops for screening and enumeration instruments. DCAS has proved to be the only survey tool at NCS capable of producing complex instruments in a timely fashion and collecting high quality data. During 2014, the DCAS technology allowed DCAS team to author and field 160 new data collection instruments, each with an average size of several hundred questions; several survey instruments contained more than a thousand questions. For a few months a team of 2-3 non-IT content developers managed to produce about 30 instruments per month and was able to deliver all requested instruments on schedule and with high quality. InfoPro implemented a non-linear (tabular) means of navigation in the DCAS data management subsystem allowing a data manager to review and edit data collected both electronically and inputted from paper forms and to address field data collectors’ comments and any possible discrepancies. InfoPro also designed and developed a new sample tracking system, enabled Internet and mobile data collection and implemented over 30 additional data quality and operational reports.
