Let’s face it, change is hard. You get used to the way you’ve always done things and when someone talks about doing something different, you’re like a deer caught in headlights.
If you’re working at a clinical research site and have always used paper regulatory documents, changing to an electronic document solution may seem overwhelming and a bit scary.
But like Sheryl Crow said, “A change would do you good!”
In all seriousness though, there are some significant benefits of switching to an electronic document solution like RealTime-eDOCS. Sites that have made the switch are loving the user-friendly interface and ease of accessing eRegulatory documents all in one centralized location.
If your site is considering making the switch, read on to learn more about the benefits to your site.
1. Save time and money. We all love saving money and who doesn’t like to save a little time? Electronic documents eliminate the need for printing, filing, scanning and mailing as well as the need for storage space for bulky regulatory binders.
2. Remote monitoring. With an electronic document system, users can access and manage regulatory records remotely reducing the need for sponsor travel between sites. Best of all, documents are available with the click of a button anytime, anywhere!
3. Increase efficiency. From electronic signatures, the ability to set expiration dates for CVs, licenses and certification and the ease of accessing all documents in one centralized place to improved collaboration between investigators and sponsors, an electronic document solution increases efficiency from all angles.
Going paperless doesn’t have to be a challenge. If you’re already a RealTime customer, eDOCS is a fully-integrated solution that can be implemented quickly. If you are using another CTMS or don’t currently have a management system, eDOCS can be used as a stand-alone system!
