ACRP 2019 – Key Takeaways (and Bandanas)
Each year, RealTime attends a variety of conferences around the globe in hopes of aiding clinical research professionals, sites, sponsors and CROs on their paperless journey. RealTime attended ACRP in Nashville, Tennessee this April and the team had the opportunity to network with professionals in the industry while gaining insight into the realm of clinical research technology. Did you get your RealTime-Bandana?!
RealTime’s CEO, Rick Greenfield discussed one of the hottest topics at the conference:
The Paperless Site –eSOURCE and eREG
In a follow-up conversation with Rick Greenfield, we asked him a few questions on his takeaways from the conference.
How do you feel that RealTime is contributing to the shift to Paperless Sites?
“The RealTime-SOMS (Site Operations Management System) is the first of its kind, combining our leading CTMS, eSOURCE, eDOCS, SitePAY, and TEXT into one system. The RealTime-SOMS can also be accessed through the RealTime-MobileAPP, which can essentially eliminate the need for paper and allow site staff and investigators to perform most tasks with a smartphone or tablet. While developing these paperless solutions has been challenging, seeing the success that RealTime sites are having with the shift to eSOURCE and eDOCS is incredibly rewarding. I only wish that I would have had these tools when I was running my own clinical research site.”
What was your favorite part of ACRP?
“ACRP was an incredible experience for RealTime. The best part was seeing how RealTime and the many other vendors at ACRP that are working to change the industry by helping Sites, Sponsors and CROS achieve greater efficiency and better outcomes. It is a privilege to network with other industry professionals and to participate in the search for innovative solutions to the obstacles our industry faces every day.”
Do you feel that Site-Based Paperless Systems will change our industry for the better?
“They already are! The shift to site-based paperless systems is already happening at an astounding rate, and the benefits of these new systems are already being realized by all parties involved in the conduct of clinical trials. As the shift continues, the clinical research industry as we know it will be faster and more efficient than ever.”
