In a longitudinal medical study, various types of data and biomaterial samples are collected in frequent intervals, and are used to analyze factors and pathways leading to a defined disease or a group of diseases. Large volume of complex data consisting of medical history and biochemical analysis results are typically collected in such studies.Our research shows that if the appropriate data model is co-designed with the research goals, it is possible to create a generalized model which allows integrating six tasks of the study: collecting, storing, managing, and analyzing data and samples, and introducing machine learning tools to create predictive models, which in turn assist in the previous tasks. We have implemented this model as a system, which integrates individual processes, minimizes human error, and conforms to changes in the study. This clearly improves the quality, interpretability, reliability and efficiency in understanding the development of the disease.
