Research studies come in a wide variety of formats. A rigid, unchangeable solution can’t work for every study. However, a flexible process that can handle key points and adapt to work with the format of any study can drastically improve the management of the study.
A digital solution that handles the study registration, follow-ups and reminders, and the long-term contact with participants can help researchers save time and devote more time to conducting research directly.
SimplyCast presents the idea of the Research Study Management use case, a complete solution for managing the participant-related tasks involved in the research studies management process.
This solution can be leveraged by researchers to reduce the time spent transcribing signup sheets, messaging participants manually, and managing other tasks that could instead be automated.
The Improved Research Study Management Process
SimplyCast anticipated the need for researchers to improve the way that they manage communications with the participants of research studies.
Within this process, researchers and participants each have two main tasks once the initial solution setup is complete.
Researchers – Step 1
First, researchers need to either link to the signup form for their study online, or on physical media using a QR code t make it available for participants to access and sign up.
Participants – Step 1
Next, participants can follow these links or scan the QR codes to access the signup form and provide all the information that is needed to register for the study.
Participants – Step 2
After registering for the research study, participants can then be sent any additional information required such as consent forms, study format details, or the next steps to be taken.
Researchers – Step 2
Once a research study is complete, researchers can easily use the existing contact records from when participants signed up to inform participants of any results.
So, there you have it. The core parts our research study management process. However, these ideas are just the beginning. Because the SimplyCast platform is a no-code platform that allows anyone to build and edit their solution, this process can be expanded on to match the format of any study. In other words: this solution is fully customizable, it can be tweaked or altered to meet the exact needs of every institution.
