Stew Duff, who makes what we do at Spiral technically possible

He’s not a researcher signing up patients for life-saving clinical trials – but he does determine eligibility.

He’s not a doctor, or a nurse, seeing patients and delivering recovery results – but he does do patient follow-ups and reporting. 

He’s not on the front-lines, but he is helping to save lives from the back end.

Application barnacle scraping


Our developers have been engaged in "barnacle scraping" this week. 


Like the hull of a ship, software needs to go through periodic barnacle scraping, especially when we are making lots of changes and adaptations. Adapting our software platform for COVID research studies has pretty much become the norm for us. All those adaptations leave "barnacles" or little extras which are extraneous to the functioning of the platform and can slow things down. 

We can do all this while the software application continues to run so carry on as usual.  The changes we have been making will improve performance, speed up response times and make things smoother for you.

Thank you for your comments and feedback.
