If it is worth doing - it is worth doing well

Welcome to BLIPS 8™ for the VAY736X2208 Study

The BLIPS software program has been iteratively designed and developed by ADS-Limathon in collaboration with the British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG) . BLIPS is the only BILAG scoring system validated and endorsed by the BILAG Group, and ADS-Limathon are the exclusive licensors of BILAG for commercial studies.

BLIPS™ was originally developed by ADS-Limathon as a desktop software application in 1995 and first released as a product in 1997. It has been in constant use for over 25 years and now hosts BILAG data going back almost 30 years. In 2022 we are proud to introduce the first modules of the latest version - BLIPS 9 ™.

BLIPS 9™ is a modular suite of BLIPS applications designed to monitor and assess lupus patients at regular assessments.

Today, the BLIPS 8 and BLIPS 9 Services are hosted on the latest high availability technology with server replication, using the latest dual processor servers, with RAID arrays of solid state drives for speed, daily backups for data security, and offsite backups for disaster recovery.

The BLIPS 8™ Software uses HTML5, and the new BLIPS 9™ uses Blazor technology for maximum browser compatibility ensuring that you will not require any browser plug-ins or PC installation. Modular design allows us to configure your system to exactly what you need.

BLIPS™ comprises the following modules:

  • BLIPS Certify™ - Standardising assessments through training and certification
  • BLIPS Entry™  - Simplifying Data Entry, Edit Checks, and Scoring for each site
  • BLIPS Investigator™ - provides an holistic view of the patient assessments
  • BLIPS Resolve - allows BILAG and SLEDAI data side by side for Query resolution
  • BLIPS Query™ - Audit trailed data queries between study team and sites
  • BLIPS Responder™ -  Real time generation of SRI and BICLA responders
  • BLIPS Analysis™ - Push button trend analysis and graphing
