The Office of Clinical Trials (OCT) uses Merge CTMS, a clinical trials internet based management system used to track and account the work of trials that are administered.
This allows our office the ability to:
- Record study information
- Store and organize electronic documents
- Schedule and track patient appointments
- Build budgets
- Manage financials
- Manage Invoicing and collections
- Reconcile charges and payments
- Customize reports
Study coordinators will use the software to help manage their trials. Minimal patient information will be used to monitor visit completions and study accruals.
OCT has arranged for payments due to study subjects for travel, meals, and their study participation to be handled on the day of their visit, with a technology solution that enables the subject to be compensated at the time of his/her visit.
The ClinCard System is a web-based technology designed to comply with all applicable regulations. It allows PIs to deliver subject payments (stipends, travel reimbursements, and other ad-hoc payments) in a controlled and automated manner in compliance with industry regulation and in accordance with the specific requirements of each study. This automated system similar to a debit card, enables prompt patient compensation for his/her study visit.
This system should:
- Reduce paperwork and processing of dispensed funds
- Increase subject retention & compliance
- Improve patient satisfaction
