RealTime: It's Far More Than A CTMS

Having so our processes and materials sensibly organized and readily accessible in one place has improved our overall efficiency. It supports our QA/ QC processes in ways that have allowed us to improve the quality of our data and accounts receivable. We are especially impressed with all the the staff at RealTime. The quality of training, support and maintenance has been excellent.

Pros

Great user interface, sensible workflow/ navigation and exceptional functionality aside, it was designed, developed and continues to be enhanced by people who have actually done clinical trials. This is evident in every aspect of the software. The whole product suite and related offerings, e.g., eDocs, eSource, SitePAY and Text are terrific, and for us it is evolving to be an overall Business Management System.

Cons

We would like to see more granularity in access privileges.

RealTime has been a big help for our finances!

We needed a CTMS that helped us separate from our SMO and go into research on our own. This software helped us get set up and organized from Day 1, easing the transition to perform all administrative functions in house instead of outsourcing.

Pros

I love how the accounting side helps link patient visits to reimbursements. This has made my job so much better for AP/AR and tracking payments.

Cons

There is a learning curve, but once you get past that, it really is easy to use!

Reasons for Choosing RealTime-CTMS

Created by study coordinators with study coordinators in mind. The entire format and workflow just made sense to us!

NZ site review

Finding our way around the system has been relatively easy. A few items are not that applicable to sites not based in US. An edit function on existing invoices would be a real bonus.

Pros

All trial information in one place for staff. Lots of fields for patient information is great too.

Cons

Would like to be able to add GST to our invoices. Would like to be able to amend invoices after created.

Thank you, Phillippa, for your feedback. We love to listen to our customers and make updates to RealTime based on their needs. I am happy to tell you that Invoices are now completely editable in RealTime. Additionally, we are working on an update for our non-US customers to track government taxes such as GST. We hope to have this update deployed in Q1 of 2017. Please let us know if there are any other areas of the system that you would like to see improved to better suite your local environment.

RealTime at SRA

RealTime is something of a go to at our company. Any time anyone has a question regarding a study, a participant, scheduling, our answer to each other is always, "did you check RealTime?" The best part is that through RealTime we're always able to get the answers that we need. And if it's not something we're sure RealTime can give us, the support staff is always more than happy to walk us through a feature that we may not have realized existed. We have been using RealTime for close to two years now, and through updates and additional features, there really isn't anything RealTime can't provide for us. In regulatory, I especially love the document feature. It centralizes a place for our consents and protocols so that when coordinators or the marketing department has a question, they can reference the source material. The addition of subject documents has been invaluable as well. Rather than coming up with a filing system that's arguably archaic, it makes it easy to reference a participant's prescreen right in their profile. It saves us space and time to be able to have this information readily available. The best thing, though, I could say about RealTime is that is has features we didn't know we wanted. I could try to come up with things that could be added or improved on, but the truth is RealTime is always a step ahead of us. Every time a new feature is launched, I find myself saying, "oh yeah, that would be helpful!"

Pros

The ease of use and the availability for help. We have interns and some staff who only use RealTime for specific things, like referencing the calendar, or scheduling appointments. Because RealTime is so user friendly, we don't have to spend much time training our new staff on how it works. And even if a training session is required, it's great that the team at RealTime can provide this for us.

Cons

I honestly do not have any complaints at this time.

Cool Software that is always improving

Great way to implement a paperless trial site without using disparate systems. Awesome support and always improving features.

Pros

Support is friendly and quick to respond. Improvements are implemented on a regular basis and suggestions are taken seriously. The product is always evolving. Training is excellent. Cost of the product is very competitive and allows you to scale without taking on too much risk. Product features are progressive for the industry such as offering eSOURCE. The system is pretty easy to learn overall. The ability to purchase different pieces of the system a la carte is very nice and integration between the different pieces is reasonably good, though some future improvements would really make it stand out. Overall, RealTime is a fantastic company to work with and they have a great product.

Cons

Navigating on a web-based platform can be a little slower than a desktop install at times, even on a quick connection, but I would say the convenience of connecting outweighs the downside. The phone app is still a work in progress but is a bit limited at this point compared to the web version. Some features are buried in the menus and not the most intuitive or efficient to navigate to, but overall the system is very easy to use.
