Bio-Optronics, Inc. Release: Clinical Conductor Site Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) Improves Clinical Trial Productivity at Research Sites



3/25/2009 9:41:44 AM

ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Bio-Optronics, Inc., a leader in healthcare workflow software, announces that its Clinical Conductor Site Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) continues to improve productivity for investigative clinical research sites, particularly in the areas of patient recruitment, advertising ROI, scheduling, and financial management.

Patient recruitment continues to be an area of concern for clinical trials. Clinical Conductor Site CTMS helps improve recruitment efficiency by providing the tools to leverage existing patient databases, easily track advertising ROI, and implement web-based virtual recruitment. At Rochester Clinical Research, "All aspects of recruiting have changed," states Pat Larrabee, President and CEO. "We target and manage our patient population, and are quicker at identifying patients for studies, even difficult ones." She adds, "Clinical Conductor has changed where we put our advertising dollars. We know what's working and what's not." Other sites parallel this experience and some have even gained additional sponsor funding using metrics on the effectiveness of ads.

Clinical Conductor helps sites improve productivity by centralizing information and providing real-time access from multiple locations. At Clinical Research Advantage, scheduling, study status, staffing, and financial management have become more efficient. Eric Levie, Chief Technology Officer states, "We're able to balance staff load better, budget better, and, with real-time data, have an accurate snapshot of the profitability of a study." He adds, "Previously, we used hundreds of spreadsheets, and it took a great deal of time to gather the information needed for payments. Now, stipend payments are issued with a few clicks, and with QuickBooks integration there's no duplicate entry."

Single-site and multi-site clinical research organizations, and those converting from manual spreadsheets and other CTMS systems, are realizing gains. Experiencing 150% year-on-year growth, Clinical Conductor delivers a comprehensive workflow solution. Designed by clinical trial research sites for clinical trial research sites, it handles everything from patient databases and recruitment, to visit planning and scheduling, financial management, and complete oversight and reporting, and is backed by a recognized customer support team.

Bio-Optronics will exhibit Clinical Conductor at the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) 2009 Global Conference and Exhibition this April in Denver, Colorado, and will be speaking and exhibiting at MAGI's Clinical Research Conference 2009 East in Miami, Florida at the end of May.
