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.

RealTime CEO discusses the shift to paperless sites and the challenges sites face when transitioning to paperless systems like eSOURCE and eDOCS.

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.”

If you missed RealTime at ACRP, here is a list of our upcoming conferences:

  • MAGI EAST | May 5 – 8th | Boston, Massachusetts
  • DIA | June 23 – 27th | San Diego, California
  • SCRS | October 11 – 13th | Hollywood, Florida

6 New Features of the RealTime-CTMS MobileAPP

From text messages to video conference calls, mobile devices have become part of an everyday routine. Consequently, mobile device usage has become more evident in the clinical research setting. Utilizing electronic devices can improve efficiency and streamline research data across your site.  Implementing the right mobile software can drastically enhance the study process.

The new RealTime-MobileAPP delivers innovative new features that place a Site Operations Management System (SOMS) in the palm of your hands. With a tablet or phone, you can access studies, subjects, calendars, contacts, source documents, regulatory documents and much more. So, here’s an inside look at our latest updates!

 

1. Face Recognition

One of the most innovative features of the MobileAPP is face ID recognition. Rather than logging in with password credentials, setting up face recognition can make remembering passwords a thing of the past while also streamlining the eSignature process for documents.

2. Calendar and Scheduling

Users can access various calendars to keep their schedules organized. Manage events from the MobileAPP and easily stay on top of your appointments.

3. System Notifications

Receive push notifications for calendar events, eSOURCE communication and eSignature requests. All notifications are management on a single notification page.

4. Streamlined Subject Management

Investigators and staff can now refer subjects through the Subject tab or from the main menu. Referrals from the MobileAPP feed directly into the CTMS to initiate recruitment processes. Users can also search for qualified subjects based on history or indication. The subject profile page allows users to view contact attempts, demographics, and study visits in one place.

5. eDOCS and eSOURCE Integration

Investigators and staff can access eDOCS to view/sign study regulatory documents.  Accessing eSOURCE will allow users to view enrolled subjects and collect visit data straight to their iPad or tablet.

6. Study Contacts

Users can access contacts directly from the MobileAPP. Add professional contacts or staff contacts for easy communication.

So, what are you waiting for?

Start accessing subject profiles, calendars, source documents, and more through the RealTime-MobileAPP! Streamline your site communication and increase efficiency.

Behind the Software with Nathan Levens

Our goal as a team is to give back to clinical researchers by creating software that is more efficient, reliable, and easy to use. This month, we are featuring a team member that has gone above and beyond for our customers, Nathan Levens.

Nathan has over 10 years’ experience in the clinical research industry. He is currently the Product Manager for our eSOURCE product at RealTime Software Solutions and teaches sites how to transition from paper-based regulatory and source documentation processes to electronic solutions.

You might be wondering what Nathan is like behind the software. We had the chance to ask him a few questions to get to know him a little better!

What was your favorite TV show growing up?

Growing up, I had a lot of favorite TV shows, but I watched Saved by the Bell reruns every day after school for several years. I thought Zack Morris was the coolest guy in the world.  Especially when he got his first mobile phone and carried it in his backpack.  I was still using a wall-mounted phone with a 10 ft cord that stretched across the room.

What’s the best piece of professional advice you’ve ever received?

I’ve received a lot great advice from books, coworkers and people I consider mentors.  One piece of advice that comes to mind is that we should ‘work to learn’ rather than simply ‘work to earn’. There are a lot of jobs that provide a paycheck, but it’s important to be selective when taking a position with a company.  Go for the jobs that force you to learn new skills.  As you learn new skills, more opportunities will present themselves throughout your career.

What’s your favorite 90’s jam?

Too many songs to choose from. The 90’s were awesome. I watched MTV every morning before school and liked almost every song that hit their top 20 list.

What’s the coolest or most interesting thing you’re working on right now?

That would be the product that I manage, RealTime-eSOURCE. This type of product is changing the way research sites collect study data and the possibilities are endless with this product.  I’m excited to see how the product shapes the industry in the next 5-10 years.

If you could meet any comic book superhero, who would it be and why?

Easy… Batman.  No explanation needed.  It’s Batman.  He can beat anyone, even Superman.

What are your biggest pet peeves?

I’ve never had pet peeves, but I do have a pet Yorkie.  Just kidding but I do have a Yorkie!  The only thing I can think of that bothers me is when fellow drivers decide not to use their blinker light in traffic and subsequently get mad at me for not realizing they want in my lane.  I’ve learned a lot about breathing to relax in traffic.

What’s your favorite famous or inspirational quote?

I’ve never been attached to famous quotes, but I like funny ones.  “Life’s a garden.  Dig it!” – Joe Dirt

What are the values that drive you?

I’m sure I sub-consciously subscribe to a lot of values but I usually just keep things simple in my life. I make sure I’m doing my best at whatever I set my mind to, and I value my relationships with friends and family.

What books/podcasts are you into at the moment?

I like to get nerdy so I’m currently listening to StarTalk Radio with Neil deGrasse Tyson.  I’m also reading Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday.

What is the most inspiring part of your job?

It’s the customer testimonials that inspire me.  As a product manager, I love the fact that I get to help create solutions that make other people’s lives easier.  It’s a great feeling when a customer expresses how happy they are for choosing RealTime. These testimonials inspire me to help more customers.

RealTime is Changing the CTMS Industry with First-of-its-Kind New App

Research sites can now access popular eDOCS solution on mobile device with new app

SAN ANTONIO—Want to access site eRegulatory files, sign documents with your thumb print, refer a patient to a study or look up site and sponsor contacts all on your mobile device? There’s an app for that!

RealTime-CTMS launched the first-of-its-kind new app this week that allows site staff to use its popular eDOCS solution from an iOS or Android device.

“No other CTMS or eRegulatory system has mobile capabilities like we do,” says RealTime-CTMS CEO, Rick Greenfield. “The ease at which sites can access pertinent information including inclusion and exclusion information, sign documents using finger print technology and even refer patients directly into the CTMS system can’t be matched.”

eDOCS is a cutting-edge system that can be fully integrated with RealTime-CTMS or used as a stand-alone system. The solution enables sites to go fully digital, eliminating messy regulatory binders and paper work. eDOCS has already made a splash in the clinical research world and with the release of the app, industry leaders are expecting the solution to continue to grow in popularity.

“Everything is going mobile, even the clinical trial industry,” says Greenfield. “With the tap of a button on your mobile device, sites now have instant access to information that would otherwise have to be found in bulky binders and loads of paperwork.”

Some features of the new app include the ability for investigators to sign documents using iOS and Android finger print technologies, easy access to site and sponsor contacts on the go and push notifications that alert investigative staff that requests for signatures are pending. The app also allows site staff to refer a patient into a study and instantly access protocol and study information.

“We are very excited about the launch of our app and believe it will greatly increase efficiency and success across our sites,” says Greenfield.

For more information on eDOCS mobile, download the app at the App Store or on Google Play.
