CTMS Deployment

Client Profile: Large academic medical center

Client Need: CTMS Customization, Analysis and Deployment Support

Essex Results: A complex, integrated, and highly-customized clinical trial management system was rolled out to the research community.


Essex resources took the lead to implement the system, establishing program-level governance, providing project management, end-to-end business analysis, Q/A, creation of test cases and scripts and execution of testing, training, and leading stakeholder and business process harmonization and system implementation activities. This implementation included a data conversion from a legacy CTMS system, and custom reporting and interfaces that were built from the CRMS module to the client’s electronic medical records system (EPIC).

Tasks included defining clinical trials workflows and terminology in the areas of research studies and general study-related information and meta-data. Essex supported the development of Interface Specifications, including scope and the definition of system interface points between multiple clinical systems.
