MADISON, Wis., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The fall release of Allegro CTMS@Site, the clinical trial management system (CTMS) built for investigator sites and research groups, is rich with new features that aim to ease the workload of busy site staff. One key enhancement, much-anticipated by prospects and customers alike, is the addition of patient recruitment campaign functionality.
Sites are faced with many options for patient recruitment. Ads may be placed on media outlets such as TV and radio, social media may be utilized, or sites may develop their own call or email lists. However, tracking the impact of the campaign, response rate, and actual enrollment from all these sources can be difficult. Even more challenging, is comparing those numbers to the total cost of the recruitment effort and understanding which recruitment methods generate the highest return on investment (ROI).
The new recruitment campaign functionality within Allegro CTMS@Site helps ensure that the appropriate level of contact has been made and the next steps are clearly defined. Site staff can clearly see the recruitment progression from initial contact with a patient through registering them to the protocol.
In addition to traditional recruitment sources, Allegro CTMS@Site allows sites to leverage their existing patient registry to quickly and easily generate their own call or email lists for recruitment campaigns. Within the patient registry, potential matches can be identified on a number of factors that are best suited to the requirements of the protocol. By relying on their existing data, sites can spend their time reaching out to potential patients rather than gathering contact information.
With the addition of patient recruitment campaigns to the already highly adept CTMS, sites are able to streamline and simplify their workflows, increase efficiency, learn from their successes and failures, and ultimately increase their ROI. With a clear understanding of the number of potential subjects contacted versus the number enrolled on the trial and the resources spent, sites gain more visibility into negotiating future recruitment budgets.
