Also, gotoprotocol allows sponsors and sites to invite their colleagues and other potential referral sources to follow their actively enrolling studies. They can conveniently access basic inclusion criteria and readily refer through a one-click button to site and researchers they know and trust.
Gotoprotocol connects the research and health community together to help facilitate clinical trial recruitment with real and reliable subjects. Many in the healthcare community have been disengaged from the clinical research community.
Gotoprotocol bridges that gap. Clinical trial success have been affected more restrictive and complex protocols, recruitment challenges, non-compliant subjects, and the “professional” research subject who may not represent “real-world patients” that could benefit from the results of the study. By getting the healthcare community more involved, healthcare professionals can stay current on new scientific developments and help advance new treatment options by referring more appropriate subjects to actively recruiting studies.
Gotoprotocol Basic is free for sponsors and sites.
Gotoprotocol Pro allows sponsors to more thoroughly manage their study materials and provide more support for their sites.
