Data Capture and Management
CRIS (Comprehensive Research Information System powered by Velos eResearch) is a secure web-based Clinical Information Management System such that data and protocol information can be entered efficiently and in a standardize format compliant with NIH reporting standards. The comprehensive clinical trials management system supports participant recruitment, study monitoring, trial design, protocol management, and data safety monitoring; case report form construction and dissemination; integration of tissue and clinical information; clinical trial execution and query management; and integration with third party clinical systems. We have designed a web-based software application utilizing the Velos eResearch system. Our Comprehensive Research Information System (CRIS) provides capabilities to:
The system includes in its software programming to maintain compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 as well as various industry and federal standards. The system can support multi-center, cooperative group and investigator-initiated research through advanced technology and security features, all contained in one comprehensive environment. Through utilization of this comprehensive system great improvements in the research productivity, efficiency, collaboration and integrity of data can be achieved. We have designed the Comprehensive Research Information System using the Velos eResearch product as it allows us to design and develop an extensive and custom application while maintaining a data standard shared by other institutions.
