Database gives Rochester Clinical a recruitment boost

CEO Patricia Larrabee credits database software as a turning point for Rochester Clinical Research. The trial site now has a 23,000-name database it taps for filling study rosters.

"Using spreadsheets was becoming very frustrating," says Larrabee, in a local press profile. "Then we began working with [workflow solutions provider] Bio-Optronics, to develop software."

The solutions provider has three product lines: Clinical Conductor, with CTMS and related functionality; Bio-point, for patient identification; and a workflow solution called Momentum.

Rochester Clinical continues to recruit test subjects from its large and aging community, using print and online ads and such social media outlets as Facebook and Twitter. The New York investigator site is among other research facilities and sponsors heading online to find volunteers.

Earlier this month, for example, MA-based Northeast Medical Research Associates rebranded as NEMRA and launched a website to educate visitors about trials to boost recruitment.
