Processing patients through the consent portion of a clinical trial has become significantly time consuming and laborious for Clinical Nurses.
Over 12 months, hip and knee surgeries taking part in a clinical trial were measured by the nursing research team at Epworth using Cogniom’s TANDM Suite.
Over 22 eligible surgeries were timed and measured throughout the consenting portion of their surgeries, equally split between paper and electronic processes to discover efficiency opportunities.
With the traditional paper-based methods of requiring the clinical research team to hand deliver paper brochures and train the patients in person, the total time was 200 days to step 12 patients through the entire process to completion.
With Consentic’s eConsent process, the total time to complete these steps was reduced to an average of just 5.7 days.
