Case Study: Assistant Study Coordinator

  • Cardiology study with very specific inclusion/exclusion criteria
    • Large cardiology practices with large patient databases
    • Too time consuming for regular study coordinator
    • Varied EMR and paper records
    • No EMR off-site review process available (no EMR consistency)
  • ICTS Solutions
    • Assistant study coordinator placed in site
    • Site pulled charts based on ICD-9 codes, age, treatment dates
    • ASC manually reviewed electronic and paper records, labs, nuclear medicine reports
    • Patients who met criteria were referred to site study coordinator scheduled for screening
  • Average of 73% reduction in randomization time across all sites
  • Peer-to-peer site feedback resulted in higher quality data
