Unmet Need
This invention addresses the pervasive problem of suboptimal accrual rates in clinical trials. Current strategies to overcome suboptimal accrual consist simply of periodic newsletters and frequent email blasts to investigative teams at participating centers to keep a given clinical trial "present in mind", communicate cumulative enrollment progress across all participating centers, and positively reinforce enrollment achievements when they do occur. However, like many other mass-email approaches, these e-blasts are often ignored by investigative teams, who become rapidly de-sensitized… This invention involves the development of a software application that serves as a communication vehicle between a trial Sponsor/leader and the investigative teams and Study Coordinators who are collaborating in a given clinical trial.
Technology Overview
The Application handles multiple trials simultaneously, with different networks of investigative teams for each trial. The Application "look and feel" is comparable to leading networking software applications. The Application will be downloadable from mobile devices; it will also be accessible via an interactive website. Data will be stored on a secure server. In the initial conception, no collection of protected health information (PHI) is envisioned; however, high data security is desired in order to permit flexibility as to future use cases that could involve collection of PHI.
