MACRO Trials’ Goal to Create a More Streamlined, Physician-Friendly Clinical Trial Experience Propelled Through Partnership with CRIO Clinical Trial Management System

MACRO Trials (MACRO) continues to expand the company’s capabilities to assist physicians who desire to perform clinical trials outside the mired traditional institutional research process. Today, MACRO announces their partnership with Clinical Research IO (CRIO), a provider of innovative software, including a clinical trial management system (CTMS). MACRO and CRIO share the objective to eliminate the inefficiencies and complexities of the clinical trial process.

The partnership enables MACRO’s geographic expansion by having all pertinent information regarding every aspect of a clinical trial available on a device instantly from any location. The HIPAA- and FDA-compliant software secures data online, an exponential improvement to the accuracy and security risks from thick binders of paper charts. In addition, the user-friendly, on-the-go nature of real-time data capture engages community physicians to reach underserved patients and communities of color for participation in clinical trials.

“Inclusion of communities of color within clinical trials is the crucial element in our goal of more representative research and, ultimately, better data. MACRO’s partnership with CRIO empowers the community physician—who traditionally serves these underrepresented populations—to now seamlessly participate as investigator. This accomplishment is a tipping point in changing the culture of clinical research,” states MACRO’s Chief Operating Officer, Daniel A. Perez.

CRIO’s software suite allows for a seamless and complete clinical trial process. The CTMS streamlines clinical trial operations including patient scheduling, financial tracking and recruiting, while the electronic data collection improves data quality. CRIO clinical trial online tools support MACRO’s mission to change the culture of clinical research by removing longstanding barriers and providing the infrastructure to perform the highest quality clinical trials across all specialties and private settings.

About MACRO Trials
MACRO Trials (MACRO) was founded in 2009 by physician colleagues passionate about performing high-quality research within their specialties. After establishing a record of conducting industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated trials in the fields of aesthetics, dermatology and plastic surgery, MACRO applied their unique research framework to support other principal investigators in private practice. Working closely with sponsors and contract research organizations, MACRO went on to facilitate and optimize research without the associated administrative and regulatory headaches. With a mission to change the culture of clinical research, and an eye toward a technologically adaptive research paradigm, MACRO is evolving to continue to incorporate best practices in clinical trial optimization.
