MADISON, Wis. (PRWEB) January 23, 2018
Forte, an industry-leading developer of clinical research solutions, announced it has been named a 2018 Top Innovator by CenterWatch, a leading publisher of clinical trials information for clinical research professionals. Forte was recognized for making the clinical trials process more efficient with its Protocol Calendar Exchange.
Forte's Protocol Calendar Exchange provides a library of standardized protocol calendars for multiple sites on the same clinical trial to download into their clinical trial management system (CTMS). Sites using these standardized calendars are able to improve protocol compliance and quality, increase staff efficiency and reduce study activation times. "The protocol calendar isn't just an important aspect of clinical trials - it is the most important aspect of a clinical trial," said Shree Kalluri, Founder, President, CEO & Chief Customer Officer at Forte. This innovation was developed through a collaboration with multiple institutions to establish community-wide standards and maintain greater consistency in protocol calendar interpretation. More than 5,000 calendars have been built and are available through the exchange.
Forte was featured along with 20 other clinical trials industry innovators nominated by readers of The CenterWatch Monthly to honor them for their novel ideas and ability to implement them. In the announcement, CenterWatch noted that many of the innovations involved technology that can make processes more efficient.
"It's a great honor to be recognized as a Top Innovator by CenterWatch, showcasing the hard work and strong collaboration between our team and research sites to develop a service that creates efficiencies for multi-center trials and ultimately impacts patients' lives through more affordable and timely preventions and cures," said Shree Kalluri,
