Promet Source migrated an outdated eRMa website from a Microsoft.NET platform to Drupal. The old site was failing security audits and was not easy for administrators to modify. Additionally, the system needed a maintenance overhaul to improve usability and cost-efficiency.

The user can filter by product type, Institute/Agency that developed the technology, launch date and approving agency. Users can easily find information regarding a product’s use, inventor, features and more.
The product development pipeline display allows users to research product development projects that are in different stages of development. Site visitors can access information about specific treatments, phase of clinical trial, commercial availability, etc. Users can narrow their searches by disease category, treatment type, phase of clinical trial and more.
The “HHS Lights Up the World” map displays licenses and locations on a global map. Users can search active licenses and filter results by country, issuing agency and fiscal year. This feature uses a mapping library that allows users to interactively narrow down to regions of the world to see licensee locations.
The new website improves efficiency for transferring HHS technologies to for-profit companies so that they can be commercialized. Promet Source values the contributions of NIH and OTT and appreciates the opportunity to help make an impact on commercializing medical research innovations across the globe.
