How can your CTMS make your site or site network a recruitment powerhouse?

Patient recruitment in clinical trials is undeniably one of the most challenging obstacles facing the clinical research industry. The lack of patient participation in clinical trials can be due to multiple factors but the most likely cause of low or slow enrollment is simply the lack of clinical trial awareness.

Digital technology and connectivity have made it easier for research organizations to connect with potential patients. Adopting the right clinical trial management system (CTMS) into your site operations can also help to improve patient recruitment, retention, and turn your site into a study recruitment powerhouse. Let’s delve into the top reasons your site may want to consider RealTime-CTMS.

Advertising Mastermind

Let’s face it; we’re not all blessed with the capability (or time) to manage study campaigns, track ad spend, and remarket to study applicants. However, with RealTime-CTMS, your site holds the power to do all the above!

Your site can track ad spend budgets and patient referrals within the RealTime’s Recruitment Campaign Manager, a section in CTMS designed with your advertising needs in mind. In addition, RealTime offers robust integrations with Facebook, Instagram, MailChimp, Twilio, SubjectWell, and more that can help advance your study marketing efforts.

Leads, Leads, Leads!

Following up with new leads is crucial for a successful study. Whether your site is utilizing traditional or digital advertising, RealTime’s clinical trial management system auto-codes where your referrals are coming from, helps manage lead follow-up and lets you easily remarket to qualified patients. Clinical trial patient recruitment and engagement has never been easier!

“Can you text me?”

Why, yes. Yes, we can. RealTime-TEXT will take your patient recruitment to the next level with the only FCC-compliant Mass TEXT tool that will allow you to TEXT thousands of patients with one click. Boost recruitment by instantly notifying your patient database of new studies at your site, auto-notify patients with automated appointment reminders, and set up email alerts to inform site staff of new TEXT messages from patients.

Recruitment Powerhouse

Advertise smarter, track study budgets, and stay connected with your patients to let them know about new enrolling studies, while participating and after they have completed a study. With RealTime-CTMS, your site can become a clinical research recruitment powerhouse!

Today, Shannon brings her experience to RealTime-CTMS solutions in a way that assists sites to understand innovative clinical research solutions. Now, let’s get to know her a bit more!

What’s the top destination on your must-visit list?
Because Australia is home to some of the most unique animals of the world, I would like check it out in person.

What’s one song you have completely memorized?
There are several, but there is one that when it gets played at a party, I will lip sync the whole song. It’s Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-A-Lot.

What’s the coolest or most interesting thing you’re working on right now?
I recently conducted an onsite training with a colleague, and it was great to physically be with the site staff (aka family). I enjoyed not only helping them learn the system but being able to help establish new site processes with the new system was exciting, their excitement fed my excitement.

If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
To fly

Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?
As I get older, my hidden talents have faded. However, if you ask my husband, it’s the ability to fall asleep on command or when he starts a movie. I just think that’s called “Mom life”.

What’s your favorite famous or inspirational quote?
“A woman is like a tea bag, you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water” Eleanor Roosevelt

What energizes you at work?
I get energized at work when something that I have done helps improve another colleague or client’s day in some significant way. It encourages me to do more.

What TV shows/movies are you into at the moment?
I recently saw Instant Family and it spoke to my heart. It was like it was written about our family. On evenings when I want to relax, I put on Frasier. It always gives me a good laugh!

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
Saturdays I start off the day with a run at the beach, then errands with some fun shopping. Sundays are typically used almost all day for serving in church.

What is the most inspiring part of your job?
Because I KNOW that our system is necessary for site operations and is literally a life-changer, it is super rewarding when a client has arrived to the same conclusion after implementing our solutions.

Q&A with Rick Greenfield: RealTime-Enterprise

Large-scale research data can seem overwhelming in a data-driven industry. While managing a multi-site or extensive site network, centralizing processes and taking advantage of multiple resources across the network is the goal, but few systems on the market can truly bring this level of efficiency to a site network.  Aggregating data and providing valuable network-wide metrics for enterprise-level decision making and forecasting is another goal that is often difficult to make a reality. We had the opportunity to speak with Rick Greenfield, CEO of RealTime Software Solutions on the RealTime-CTMS Enterprise system and how it can help solve the above challenges and more.

Interviewer: What is RealTime-Enterprise?

Rick: RealTime-CTMS has enterprise-level platforms that can scale to meet the demands of the largest and geographically diverse site networks, hospital systems, and universities. Enterprise systems connect CTMS to allow for a perfect combination of separation. In regards to local resources and patient databases, these systems provide enterprise-level managers and officers with visibility across the network and aggregate data to track production, profitability, business development, and more.  Further, RealTime’s Enterprise systems allow for real centralization of processes such as finance and accounting, eREGULATORY processes, patient recruitment, and even eSOURCE creation and data collection.

Interviewer: Who can benefit from RealTime-Enterprise?

Rick: RealTime’s Enterprise systems can be found today in medium-sized multi-site networks with geographical diversity as well as extensive international site networks spanning multiple countries.  Because we have servers strategically positioned around the globe, we can also meet the strenuous and varying data privacy laws of countries such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the entire EU.

International Data Compliant Seal

Interviewer: How does RealTime-Enterprise differ from RealTime-CTMS?

Rick: RealTime-Enterprise leverages all of the tools of the RealTime-CTMS and SOMS products so that each site within the network can leverage the most powerful grouping of products on the market.  The RealTime-Enterprise platform connects sites for centralization and aggregation of systems and data.  In short, RealTime-Enterprise brings the best of the best CTMS solutions together into an unparalleled platform for network-wide management.

Large-scale data needs large-scale systems. RealTime-Enterprise brings systems and data together, like no other.  Find out how your medium to large-scale organization can benefit from RealTime-Enterprise systems to lead the shift to centralization and efficiency in the site network landscape!

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:
