User Management

VLIRT® utilizes configurable role-based access to user functions and site data.  A user’s role determines the site(s), data and system functionality to which he/she has access. Typically, a study coordinator can access only one clinical site, a site monitor can access multiple sites within a given region, and a clinical project manager may have access to all sites. But permissions in the VLIRT® system are flexible…easily re-configured to study needs with minimal impact on timelines.

User Experience = Power+Simplicity!

The Challenge:  As technology gets more and more sophisticated, data collection systems for clinical trials are at risk of becoming less and less intuitive for users. Accordingly, the importance of the User Experience has moved to the forefront in many recent pharmaceutical conferences. The challenge for the pharma-tech industry is obvious: How to deliver more and […]

Getting Data Sooner with IRT Part 2

The Challenge: In a recent post (see hot topic “Getting Data Sooner“) we talked about how using a ‘give some, get some’  strategy in an IRT system contributes to getting your clinical trial data faster. Users are motivated to enter data in a timely fashion because use of the IRT is required for the site to get critical information required […]

Getting Data Sooner With IRT

The Challenge: A classic problem in the conduct of a clinical trial is how to motivate site personnel to enter their clinical data in a timely fashion. What can be done to enable project personnel to receive study data sooner? The Solution: The simple premise of “give some, get some” describes the success of IRT systems in breaking […]

Managing Users in the IRT

Managing Users is one of the key functions of an IRT system in a clinical trial. Typically, IRTs provide the important subject randomization and drug supply management activities for the study. Assigning access to the array of permissions that determine what each user can see and not see in each arena must be foolproof, easy […]

Custom User Roles …

Problem: You’ve got a complicated study that, for ease of conduct, will require two special types of user roles not offered in your current IRT system. One is a kind of Project Observer who can access the same data your Project Managers can access, i.e., users and sites, resupply settings, screening limits, etc., but with […]
