Q&A with Nathan

What does your position entail, and how long have you been with RealTime-CTMS?

I’ve been with RealTime for just over 5 years, but I had used the system for 5 years before joining the RealTime team. A total of 10 years using the RealTime systems! With my background in clinical research and quality assurance, I’ve been lucky to help RealTime design products and services that help our customers transition to paperless research processes.  My current position allows me to ensure that our products continue to meet the needs of our customers while also identifying opportunities to help our industry move towards virtual trials using our software platform.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I enjoy designing and improving software that changes the way clinical research is conducted, but I really get satisfaction from seeing our customers successfully implement the RealTime system.  The system solves so many problems for customers and it’s very rewarding to see happy users.

Tell us more about eSOURCE in general.

RealTime-eSOURCE is a system that allows research sites to replace paper-based source documents with electronic source documents.  This allows for electronic data collection during protocol visits which leads to more efficient site processes, electronic signatures, user notifications, monitor portals, query management, and a lot more. Data can be collected using our MobileAPP and/or desktop version of the system.

Tell us about the eSOURCE Document Build Process. 

Building eSOURCE documents requires serious brain power to dissect the protocol and EDC requirements for each study.  Our customers typically have study coordinators or other high-level employee perform this task.  Our system uses a simple drag-and-drop design tool that allows users to customize the organization of their eSOURCE patient chart and procedure list at each visit. For standard eSOURCE documents, users can create and save templates that can be copied and modified on new studies to cut down on the time it takes to design a study.

Why is the eSOURCE Document Build Service so important?

The typical building process forces study coordinators to build source documents for each of their studies.  While there is some value in having the study coordinator perform this task, it removes the person from other very important tasks like subject recruitment, conducting study visits, and subject follow up.  This service is designed to help study coordinators focus on other critical tasks while we build the eSOURCE documents for them.
