Thinking Outside of the Box – Your eClinical Technology Partner

Looking for an EDC vendor who can be flexible and adapt to your needs rather than forcing you into a cookie-cutter study model? Prelude Dynamics has a solid reputation for being a trusted thought partner – providing custom solutions when the out-of-the-box solution is “almost, but not quite” what is needed for a particular protocol.

We are frequently asked to think “outside the box” and build something new and unique to support our clients and users. These customizations make life easy for clinicians and study managers and can even be done as mid-study updates when new requirements arise during study conduct. Chances are that enhancements requested by one user will also be appreciated by others.

Whether you are conducting a GCP or GLP study, we are here to help you collect and aggregate data in ways that make sense for your unique study – enhancing comprehension and streamlining procedures. Here are a few examples of enhancements and capabilities we have developed in cooperation with our sponsors/CROs in the recent past.

ePRO App – This App helps subjects and pet parents complete forms and surveys remotely and contemporaneously. Not only does this facilitate remote trial participation, it increases data integrity by providing a full audit trail and eliminating the need to transcribe paper forms. The App even supports Visual Analogue Scales that use images as axis labels. How intuitive is that?

Images on VAS scales are more intuitive than words or numbers.
Trial/Site Management – Sponsors/CROs who manage multiple studies have some challenges relating to tracking study startup, site recruitment and meeting enrollment goals. Imagine being able to set up custom checklists and track their completion visually and intuitively. Having a database that contains site credentials, past performance and includes past performance metrics helps get new studies up and running effectively and efficiently.

Custom Summaries – While VISION provides standard summaries such as Enrollment and Form Status, more tailored summaries are often invaluable aids for capturing and summarizing study-specific trends and end points. With custom summaries, there is no need to export data to Excel (or a similar tool) for analysis. Users can access this information directly from within the data collection platform – and be assured they are seeing current data. Personnel summaries can be used to manage and track site clinicians.

Bulk Data Entry – Nobody likes re-entering data that exists in another system or platform. Prelude has worked with our Sponsors/CROs to create configurable upload capabilities that allow spreadsheets of information to be used for task such as:

  • User account creation
  • Site creation
  • Lab results (uploaded for the project and “pushed” to individual subjects)

Do you have an idea for a customization or enhancement that would help you conduct and manage your clinical trial? Reach out and tell us what you need. We stand ready and willing to go the extra mile!

Prelude’s ePro Mobile App Enhances Patient Data Integrity, Compliance, and Efficiency During Clinical Trials

Of all the effective methods used to ensure subjects complete a clinical trial, our favorite is probably the ePRO mobile application. This ingenious app reduces the need for in-person visits to clinics. And who doesn’t love playing with new apps on their phone?

Both human subjects and owners of animal subjects can download this app (on either iOS or Android devices) and use it to fill in surveys and forms from anywhere. All entered data gets uploaded straight to the VISION database with a fully attributable audit trail. That means wherever your patients have cell service, they can intuitively perform contemporaneous data entry. The ePRO app offers a huge advantage over having to wait for a visit or telephone call with the clinic in order to relay daily or weekly observations. Now subjects and owners can don’t even have to get dressed or get in their cars to participate in a clinical trial anymore. Finally, a data management solution for the Netflix and Chill generation!

The ePRO app reduces the loss of subjects who do not want to risk their health by coming into the clinic for a checkup. It gives them the opportunity to enter their data into the system before they forget. Sites can even set up notifications for the users to ensure they enter their information within the expected timeline. This in turn ensures data integrity and reduces site follow-up requirements.

Data can be entered remotely using radios, check boxes, dates, times, text boxes, drop-down menus, and visual analogue scales. Images and videos can be recorded and uploaded for uses such as wound healing checks. All this flexibility and ease-of-use makes subjects significantly more inclined to continue their clinical trial participation. It will also continue to be useful into the future for subjects who would normally have a long commute to get to their required clinic.

Prelude Dynamics Releases New ePro Mobile Application.

Prelude Dynamics, LLC, has announced the release of their new VISION ePro mobile application. This application enables patients to input data directly into the electronic data capture (EDC) system on their phone for a simpler and more efficient clinical trial experience.

Traditionally, personnel have had to expend a great deal of effort to get patients to follow through with their part in trials. It is difficult for patients and other infrequent users to navigate EDC systems as they can be complex and difficult to use without proper training. The extra effort it takes to follow up with these kinds of users has translated into higher costs for sponsors and monitors. VISION, Prelude’s renowned EDC platform, is one of the most intuitive and user-friendly systems for electronic data-capture on the market today.

Prelude continues to develop products like the ePro mobile application that will make their clients’ clinical trials more efficient than ever. Patients and pet owners participating in clinical trials can now navigate the VISION software with more ease and reliability, and the costs for trials are projected to go down as Prelude continues to enhance this new capability.

As the developers of VISION, the #1 EDC software system in Animal Health, Prelude Dynamics has made sure that animal owners and human patients involved in clinical trials will benefit from this new streamlined process. Tommy Jackson, COO at Prelude Dynamics states,

“VISION ePro captures real-world study data straight from the source. Built on VISION, Prelude’s world-class integrated EDC platform, this new app will enhance the experience for all parties involved in the trial process.”

VISION ePro features many of the benefits of the VISION online system in one, easy-to-use mobile application for patients and pet owners who are on the go. Features include:

  • Mobile patient-entry
  • Scheduled survey forms
  • Push notifications
  • Media-upload capabilities
  • Complete audit-trail functionality
  • eConsent capabilities

Prelude Dynamics continues to work diligently to make the clinical trial process as smooth as possible for their clients because they understand the importance of efficiency and user-friendly technology in the data-capture and data-management industries.
