The aim of Mapi Research Trust is to facilitate access to information to all stakeholders in the Patient-Centered Outcomes field. This has been done through two main activities: the creation of unique databases and the distribution of Clinical Outcome Assessments (COAs) (cf. Glossary).

In order to maintain its position as leader in the dissemination of COA information to the scientific community, Mapi Research Trust launched the ePROVIDE™ platform in March 2016.

ePROVIDE™ is the unique entry point for all Mapi Research Trust services:

  • Three databases on COAs: PROQOLID™, PROLABELS™ and PROINSIGHT™
  • Information Support Services: PROVIDE™, including our COA distribution services

ePROVIDE™’s clients are offered multiple features:

  • A personalized access,
  • The ability to subscribe online to the specific services available from the ePROVIDE™ platform,
  • The ability to manage these subscriptions online directly from the client account,
  • A collaborative space through which collaborators can link up,
  • One unique access for all database content (PROQOLID™, PROLABELS™ and PROINSIGHT™), including a cross-database search engine, allowing searches per type of content, if needed,
  • The possibility to request COA licensing and COA information searches directly from client accounts

The following information on COAs can be found through the services available within the ePROVIDE™ platform:

  • Existing translations, how they were developed (i.e., translation certificates), and how they are distributed,
  • Copyright information,
  • The existence (or not) of an exclusivity of translation,
  • Information on COA labeling claims,
  • Information on published regulatory recommendations concerning the use of COAs,
  • And more…

Researchers or sponsors willing to develop an endpoint strategy or those requesting more information about existing COA labeling claims in a specific therapeutic area or indication,  or those searching for the suitable measure for their study, the three databases available from ePROVIDE™ help in identifying the right outcomes.

The ePROVIDE™ platform combines the data of the three databases: PROQOLID™, PROLABELS™, and PROINSIGHT™. Therefore it enables users to search and cross-check all information available. For instance:

  • Therapeutic areas (based on MeSH)
  • Therapeutic indications (based on MeSH)
  • Type of outcome assessment
  • Acronym of instruments
  • Full name of instruments

To obtain more information about how to use the search engine, please refer to How to search.

The ePROVIDE platform is also the entry point for our Information Support Services on COAs called PROVIDE™.
