Advanced Clinical Research Systems: The Top-Down Approach

The clinical research process, especially as it relates to data, primarily functions off paper source documentation and manually transcribed data into EDC systems. Most clinical research sites are still utilizing paper regulatory processes. Due to these primarily paper-based systems, there are numerous inefficiencies and detriments to the speed and accuracy of the clinical research process. So why are many sites still using paper-based research systems?

The Problem

As it relates to advanced research systems, FDA regulations have paved the way for electronic document storage, eSignatures, and electronic data capture. However, there is still an evident uncertainty in the industry about the FDA’s acceptance of a paperless process. The slow adoption of these advanced systems, unfortunately, is holding back the clinical research industry from a much more efficient and cost-effective future.

The Top-Down Approach

The Top-Down (or sponsor-driven) approach to adopting advance research systems has proven to be a long-winded process. Adherence to site policies and procedures for data accuracy, GCPs, regulatory compliance, and protocol compliance makes transitioning to paperless systems a significant hurdle. Current top-down systems do not have the user’s (site staff and doctors) needs in mind regarding workflow and ease of use.

The Solution

The shift to advanced research systems such as eDOCS and eSOURCE is inevitable. Additionally, EDC vendors need to help pave the way by offering intuitive data sync capabilities that will bring value to all parties and keep EDC companies relevant in this inevitable shift. As sites adopt site-based eSOURCE and eDOCS systems, the need to efficiently transfer files and data into sponsor-managed eTMF systems and EDC systems will become imperative. The pendulum has shifted!  Advanced electronic systems are proving their value across all organizations!

Artificial Intelligence in Clinical Research

Emerging software and artificial intelligence in clinical trials are transforming the way research is being conducted. These digital advancements can help to improve, accelerate, and simplify the clinical trial process that we know today. How can your site take advantage of these artificial intelligence capabilities and power your site’s research efforts? Let’s dive deeper into the future of clinical trials.

Subject Referral Coding

When it comes to tracking study recruitment efforts, analyzing and understanding results can be challenging. Automatic referral coding powered by AI can simplify recruitment efforts. With RealTime-AI, subject referrals are automatically coded to specific campaigns. For example, a person sees your study on Google; they click on the ad and apply to the study. That subject has automatically been coded as a Google Ad referral and dropped right into your CTMS study roster. There’s no need to ponder where your leads are coming from!

Automated Follow-up and Scheduling

Following up with fresh leads can be crucial for a successful study. RealTime-AI makes it easier for the site to follow up with new leads. AI notifications are sent to new leads via email and text, ensuring prompt follow-up and the opportunity for a phone screening. Text reminders and re-scheduling are sent to subjects automatically, reducing no-show rates!

Financial and Milestone Tracking

As any site administrator knows, study financial tracking is a time-consuming process. Manually entering study financials is now a thing of the past with Artificial Intelligence. RealTime-AI automates screen-fail max and ratio identification with intuitive revenue and cost adjustment based on contract terms. When a milestone is completed, an auto-notification is sent out to the entire site staff.

RealTime-AI has capabilities that can function on a single site, multi-site, or enterprise level. Add on features such as eDOCS, eSOURCE, TEXT, and SitePAY, can power your site and make the clinical trial process easier than before!

Q&A with Rick Greenfield: RealTime-Enterprise

Large-scale research data can seem overwhelming in a data-driven industry. While managing a multi-site or extensive site network, centralizing processes and taking advantage of multiple resources across the network is the goal, but few systems on the market can truly bring this level of efficiency to a site network.  Aggregating data and providing valuable network-wide metrics for enterprise-level decision making and forecasting is another goal that is often difficult to make a reality. We had the opportunity to speak with Rick Greenfield, CEO of RealTime Software Solutions on the RealTime-CTMS Enterprise system and how it can help solve the above challenges and more.

Interviewer: What is RealTime-Enterprise?

Rick: RealTime-CTMS has enterprise-level platforms that can scale to meet the demands of the largest and geographically diverse site networks, hospital systems, and universities. Enterprise systems connect CTMS to allow for a perfect combination of separation. In regards to local resources and patient databases, these systems provide enterprise-level managers and officers with visibility across the network and aggregate data to track production, profitability, business development, and more.  Further, RealTime’s Enterprise systems allow for real centralization of processes such as finance and accounting, eREGULATORY processes, patient recruitment, and even eSOURCE creation and data collection.

Interviewer: Who can benefit from RealTime-Enterprise?

Rick: RealTime’s Enterprise systems can be found today in medium-sized multi-site networks with geographical diversity as well as extensive international site networks spanning multiple countries.  Because we have servers strategically positioned around the globe, we can also meet the strenuous and varying data privacy laws of countries such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the entire EU.
