Florence eBinders is now available at the University of Minnesota, enabling health sciences study teams to replace paper forms and physical study binders with a digital option.
Accelerating research has become more important than ever in the face of a global pandemic. By creating a model that meets the need for speed, the Clinical Research Support Center (CRSC) can hasten the development of therapeutics—not just for one candidate, but for COVID-19 treatments being developed across UMN.
Shortly after healthcare system M Health Fairview converted Bethesda into a COVID-19 hospital, they teamed up with CTSI. Together, the partners built a robust infrastructure for COVID-19 research, pursuing innovative ways to engage Bethesda patients in the research process and optimize the way studies are conducted.
Paper forms and physical study binders will soon be replaced by an electronic regulatory binder tool, thanks to the implementation of Florence eBinders at CTSI. The tool gives PIs and study teams an efficient, secure way to electronically sign, manage, store, and collaborate on a study’s regulatory documents.
Research is the path forward in this global pandemic, and CTSI, like organizations around the world, is committed to accelerating these discoveries.
IRB-approved COVID-19 studies can now get study participants’ consent using electronic signature, thanks to a recent effort to validate REDCap’s electronic consent (eConsent) capabilities for FDA compliance purposes.
The University of Minnesota’s Clinical Research Support Center (CRSC) co-facilitated a collaborative project aimed at accelerating the research process. The process improvement effort brought together stakeholders from across the University clinical research community and led to the creation of several new ancillary review resources available on the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) website.
The Clinical Research Support Center is celebrating many achievements since opening its doors in September and remains steadfast on its focus to identify the appropriate experts and functional groups to support researchers and study teams as they navigate and advance projects through the clinical research process.
CTSI joins the world-wide celebration May 20 to recognize Clinical Trials Day to honor those who are at the forefront of conducting and raising awareness of clinical trials across the health sciences and throughout the University of Minnesota to improve health.
