Website Integration with RealTime-CTMS
[by: Rick Greenfield]
Most clinical research sites have a website to provide sponsors and potential subjects information about their facility, staff, and enrolling studies. According to a survey conducted by PEW, 87% of American adults use the internet. Failing to focus on a strong web presence could hamper a sites ability to be successful at enrolling their studies. The most successful sites provide a list of enrolling studies on their website and a way for potential subjects to “apply” for a study that they are interested in.
One of the biggest challenges that sites face is to keep their website study listing page up-to-date as studies come and go. Furthermore, keeping up with subject applications that come in from the website can be a cumbersome task, depending on how those applications are received and routed through the organization.
There is one solution that will make ALL of these processes seamless and easy: Website Integration provided by RealTime-CTMS. RealTime-CTMS can actually link up with a site’s website to automatically display a list of enrolling studies along with IRB approved flyers and study-specific information. Once this link is set up, CTMS users can easily add and remove new studies using a simple interface within RealTime-CTMS. No html code knowledge is required and no web developer assistance is needed. Additionally, RealTime’s Web Integration tool creates a study-specific page that allows site recruiters to link Facebook, Google Adwords and other web advertisements directly to, and therefore, create a streamlined path for potential subjects to locate and apply for studies. With these features in place, web traffic can be funneled to the site’s website and applications can start flowing in, all with no web developer costs.
The best part is that study applications don’t just land in an inbox, they actually land in the RealTime-CTMS system as “NEW Subject Applications” on the study in which the subject applied for. Internal alerts and email alerts are sent out to site designees to ensure that the new application is seen and followed up with expeditiously. No other CTMS except RealTime-CTMS can do all of this!
All of the functionalities that are described above are embedded within the research site’s own website and not part of some other webpage on some other server, so the website user experience is seamless and users are never redirected to another website for study listing.
