Efficiencies Seen with Duke University Pilot
A landmark demonstration pilot of the technology was conducted by the Duke University Clinical Research Institute recently and was published in a peer reviewed journal.† While they did not use the Prism eSource solution, their tool was based on the same technology and same standards. The study compared eSource and traditional workflows used for clinical trials. The results were very positive with several key findings:
- 37% reduction in time need to enter data
- Error rate was reduced from 9% to 0% for auto-populated data
- Benefits were seen with auto-populated and non-autopopulated data
- eSource workflow reduced site requirements by 1 FTE
