Web-based programs give sponsors easy-to-use tools to store, mine and
transfer knowledge base to ensure enrollment success
NEWTON, Mass., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, TCN e-Systems(SM), the patient recruitment technology leader, announced the release of a new product, "Center of Excellence," designed to establish secure, Web-based infrastructures that support in-house recruitment capabilities for clinical trial sponsors. The goal is to standardize work flow and make data access more efficient so that "lessons learned" from previous studies can be applied to current and upcoming clinical trials.
"As pressure builds for clinical trial sponsors to assume full accountability for patient recruitment outcomes, acquiring all of the knowledge necessary for successful study enrollment poses a variety of operational challenges," said Jaime Cohen, TCN e-Systems data management lead. "For a clinical trial to succeed, all stake holders must understand what it takes to drive timely patient recruitment, and have easy access to the information necessary to make it happen."
TCN e-Systems' Center of Excellence is designed to institutionalize patient recruitment expertise by establishing an easy-to-use infrastructure for creating, collecting, standardizing, and disseminating institutional knowledge throughout a given life-sciences company. The technology leverages 25 years of experience of the global patient recruitment leader, BBK Worldwide, with whom TCN e-Systems has teamed to develop the product.
"An amazing wealth of patient recruitment data exists within sponsor organizations, but it seldom resides in any one place that everyone can easily access," Cohen said. "The data and expertise necessary for patient recruitment is too mission-critical to reside in silos. All too often, only a handful of individuals possess the strategic knowledge or perspective to leverage this data to inform the enrollment process."
