Maintaining patient registry through spreadsheet is old practice and today we have CTMS with modern technologies that allows us to feed patient data instantly using mobile devices quickly and accurately using various features and functionality of latest CTMS programming practices
As I have promised in Part 1 that we will check how we can streamline the workflow during the process of clinical trials using our ultramodern CTMS development technologies and out-of-box strategies for your CTMS programming project.
Extensive Help to Various Medical Fields
Today we are living in mobile era where cloud-computing technologies have eased our highly intricate and interactive tasks in all fields including medical and its allied industries or fields. For instance, our modern eClinical system or CTMS (Clinical Trial Management System) is capable to support extensive operations at independent research sites, SMOs, and site networks in order to help academic medical centers, CTSAs, various research hospitals including private and government run bodies as well as chronic disease centers including cancer.
No Spreadsheets At All
In olden days, we were solely rely on spreadsheets in our age old PCs and facing ample distractions to feed data quickly and accurately. Now, with tablets and smartphones we need not to go to computer room or office space located in our premises. Instead, we are capable to feed data spontaneously near the bed of patients or from the operation theater in some instances. Highly user-friendly UIs of tablets and smartphone or laptop and even of desktop have removed the needs of spreadsheets at all and you have suggestive and quickly filled input boxes that allow you to feed securely and accurately your patient registry data or clinical trials data by various level of permissions.
Secure and Qualitative Data
You don’t have any fear of loss of data or inconsistency of data as all data go directly to the web services or cloud computing services in real-time as well as stored in offline mode and updated later on. Different user permission level and comment entering tricks make data more reliable and valid at technical point of view. If we want to see the doctors’ comments on that data feed, we can check them in real-time, and get instant feedback on those data. This exercise not only reduce the errors in data and hence research, but also eliminate the fears of fraudulent practices and entry of wrong professionals in our filed.
Easy Schedule and Tracking of Subject Visit
In clinical research or patient registry programs, we have to spend considerable time to fix the next visits of our patients and push our imaginations to point down the needs and sketching the possible scenario on those future visits. If our CTMS has perfect calendar and UI that prompts various scenarios in advance by coordinating various data from various centers and from different professionals we can accurately fix the schedule of next visits as well as our trained staff can follow the schedule and remaindering relevant patients beforehand and before the appointment time.
Concluding Remark for the Part 2
This real-time updates of schedule not only ease the work of doctors, nurses, office staff, but also help researchers to set their own timetable accordingly and keep things or instruments ready for those fixed visits in our patient registry. In short, these sorts of CTMS solutions help us to get:
- Automatic calendar with calculation abilities to schedule visits of the subjects of our research in clinical trials or in patient registry maintenance program
- A central repository in order to maintain our protocols, patients/subjects, and data of visits in past as well as in future
- Provide information to the doctors, staff, and patients themselves regarding to their previous visits and future visits and its schedules
- Enable us to compute financial calculations regarding to the patient registry software or disease registry or device trials programs for labs, institutions, and pharmaceutical companies
