LIMERICK, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teckro, the creator of the only clinical trials platform that facilitates collaboration and real-time decision-making between and among stakeholders, announces new product capabilities to accelerate site adoption of modern trial practices, making communication even easier at the point of care. A next-generation mobile app gives investigators and site staff answers in fewer clicks, while platform enhancements will result in new studies operational on Teckro in half the time.
Toward its vision of engaging every physician in clinical research, Teckro also unveils its “Teckro Powered” site program to establish a community of research sites ready to advance the industry and help shape future product requirements. Today, more than 23,000 research sites around the world rely on the Teckro platform for clinical trials in all therapeutic areas.
“With a critical mass of sites using Teckro, we deepen our commitment to a simple, site-driven experience that allows physicians to easily engage in research without compromising time caring for patients,” says Teckro CEO Gary Hughes. “Sponsors can ease the complexity of clinical trials with a frictionless way to communicate with sites, including when investigators can receive direct guidance from study experts at the point of care.”
First-Of-Its-Kind Site Program: Teckro Powered
“Teckro Powered” is a novel program open to any research site. The program includes a dedicated sandbox to preview Teckro capabilities and input into future requirements. In addition with the program, sites and site networks can:
- Build a technology-ready brand. Teckro Powered sites are technically savvy. Designated with a program badge on their websites and social media platforms, sites can use this to differentiate themselves and build their reputations as “sites of choice” for sponsors.
- Expand physician participation in research. Behind the Teckro Powered program is a community of research sites to open a new way to collaborate and advance the industry. With the strength of a Teckro Powered community, the goal is to encourage more physicians to participate in clinical trials, reaching broader, diverse patient populations.
- Limit impact of staff turnover. Teckro Powered is a way for sites to mitigate disruption from staff turnover. With study resources conveniently hosted in Teckro and accessible from a smartphone, sites can simplify new study member onboarding. A central source for content, communication and collaboration reduces the time to train new staff over the course of a trial.
“The Teckro Powered program fills a gap in the industry,” says Director of Site Strategy Silvina Baudino. “Working with sites for almost 20 years, I know how challenging clinical research can be. Teckro is dedicated to the site experience, which you see in both the new product capabilities and the investment in the Teckro Powered program. We are creating a way for sites to differentiate themselves and participate in a community of research sites.”
Maximizing Sponsor-Site Collaboration
Teckro’s latest platform enhancements go toward solving gaps in communication and easing the burden on site staff. A hub for study content and communication, the new Teckro capabilities include:
- Next-generation mobile application. The streamlined app provides a simple, mobile-first user experience to support point of care decisions. Based on deep user research, the new mobile application is optimally designed for clinical trial answers in just a couple of clicks. The new Teckro mobile app is now available in the app stores for Apple and Android smartphones.
- Diverse experts on demand. Teckro is expanding its communication to support more granular groups of experts for different types of site queries. Real-time guidance from those best suited to provide answers eliminates the need for a “switchboard” or for study monitors to operate as a go-between. The feature will be available in the fourth quarter.
- Increased speed and scale. Underlying platform improvements mean new studies can be added in half the time. This allows sponsors to standardize on Teckro as a resource for their sites to access current study content and communications across trials.
