Rick Greenfield, BBA-IS
CEO / Lead Inventor
Rick has nearly 20 years of experience in the Clinical Research industry. He was part owner and helped build one of the largest multi-specialty research sites in the US over a 13 year period. With a lack of truly effective and efficient CTMS systems available, he put his education in Information Systems to work and began the development of RealTime-CTMS, which eventually became the backbone of his site’s operations. RealTime was built from the ground up with the input of all of the key players at the site level to include site managers and stakeholders, Investigators, clinical research coordinators, regulatory compliance specialists, quality control and quality assurance personnel, advertisers and recruiters, clinical research associates (monitors) and more. It is Rick’s goal to continue to build innovative systems for sites, Sponsor and CROs that will contribute to operational excellence in clinical trials.
Al Peters is the Co-Founder of Clin-X, the holding company of ClinEdge and BTC Network, two service companies specializing in clinical trials. He is also a current investor in RealTime Software Solutions, a clinical research software solutions provider whose capabilities include CTMS, electronic source (eSource), and electronic regulatory (eDOCS).
Al is dedicated to creating a new site services category that streamlines operations at the institutional level and provide increased clinical trial access to patients. His notable leadership achievements and his knack for spotting industry inefficiencies helped shape a new category in the field of clinical research, which Clin-X seeks to address.
Since 2002 he has been in the Clinical Research field. Prior to devoting his work full-time to Clin-X, he founded three private research sites where he oversaw daily operations. In 2010, he co-founded ClinEdge and later BTC Network, which have since been combined under Clin-X. Since their inception, the companies have grown to be leaders in the clinical trial services space, contributing to the disruption of the current site landscape. The companies provide research clinic and patient-centric services, such as: pipeline development, patient recruitment, centralized financials services, patient travel coordination, a fully integrated research institution network, and more.
He currently resides in Southeastern Massachusetts with his wife and two daughters. His “stay-positive” attitude has always proven helpful throughout his personal and professional career. Looking to the future, he hopes to continue supporting innovative ideas to improve inefficiencies at the site level.
