Federal Organization Uses Mobile-Forms on Tablets to Get Cleaner, Faster Clinical Study Data

IDCRP, a Network of Department of Defense Clinical Research Centers, Uses Mi-Forms Technology From Mi-Co and Tablet PCs to Go Paperless With Their Clinical Study, and Produce a 50% Time Savings With 100x Fewer Queries

DURHAM, NC--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2013) - Infectious Disease Clinical Research Program (IDCRP), a worldwide network of Department of Defense (DoD) clinical and research centers that have collaborated to investigate infectious disease challenges facing the military, revealed that it uses mobile-forms technology from Mi-Co on Tablet PCs, to conduct a completely paperless clinical study with 50% time savings and 100x fewer queries.

The global, multi-site clinical trial process was previously paper-based and involved almost 20,000 paper forms, the associated printing, scanning, and manual data-entry resulting in slower data capture into back-end systems for reporting, and more errors/queries. Upon implementation of Mi-Forms best-of-breed mobile-forms technology from Mi-Co on Tablet PCs from TabletKiosk, paper was eliminated almost entirely, immediate query resolution resulted in 100x fewer queries and 80% of the study coordinators reported this system as more efficient than paper.

According to Josh Kumpf from IDCRP, "Missing or incorrect data is by and large a thing of the past as we can now mandate entry of key information into digital forms. We couldn't direct attention, highlight blank fields, or ask CRCs to confirm suspect data on traditional paper forms, but we can in a robust computerized system like the one we have built around the Tablet PCs."
