Welcome to i-BLIPS for Birmingham
The BLIPS 8™ software program has been iteratively designed and developed by ADS-Limathon in collaboration with the British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG) for almost 20 years and contains data going back almost 30 years
BLIPS™ was released in 1996 as a desktop based application for doctors, clinicians and researchers to acquire patient health and laboratory data and monitor patients response to drug treatments.
In 2005, i-BLIPS™ was born, when the system was redeveloped in Java and launched as an internet based, hosted service.
In 2011 SilverBLIPS™ was launched giving i-BLIPS an alternative updated user interface in Microsoft Silverlight.
In 2015 BLIPS 8™ was introduced and immediately replaced both SilverBLIPS and i-BLIPS with a suite of modular applications. This uses HTML5 technology for maximun browser compatibility
The BLIPS 8™ suite™ comprises
- BLIPS Certify™ for user training and cerification
- BLIPS Entry™ for Data Entry and Scoring
- BLIPS Quality™ for managing edit checks
- BLIPS Analysis™ for patient reviews, graphs and reporting
