December 1, 2022 – The winner has been selected for the 2022 European Site Spark award, which recognizes outstanding and innovative work of research sites that are implementing new and exciting ways to operationalize trials. The Clinical Research Center, based in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, was chosen based on their presentation focused on its clinical trial management system (CTMS), CRC Tool.
CRC Tool was developed as a central database for budget and expense tracking, visit scheduling, staff time management, and measuring key performance indicators (KPIs) for recruitment and retention. CRC Tool also serves as a quality documents database with all actual SOPs, forms and working instructions available to all relevant SMO members, including PIs.
“Winning the Site Spark award that recognizes outstanding and innovative work of research sites is a great achievement for an SMO operating in two small central European countries,” said Michaela Vancova, Managing Director at Clinical Research Center. “Our CTMS system, CRC Tool, was created by software developer Jan Škaloud and is a result of several years of teamwork and professionalism. CRC Tool is a multifunctional management system that proves that if you really work hard, nothing is impossible. Receiving this award gave us the motivation to continue, strengthened our team spirit, showed that it makes sense to share our ideas, and gave us that spark that makes our work especially meaningful.”
Jimmy Bechtel, SCRS VP of Site Engagement, added, “The Site Spark award acknowledges sites that have shown ingenuity, passion and inclusivity in addressing the ever-changing needs of clinical research. Congratulations to the Clinical Research Center for their outstanding achievement!”
The 2022 finalists were Clinical Research Center CZ, Institut Claudius Regaud – IUCT-O and Luz Saúde – Hospital da Luz Learning Health. The three finalists presented their ideas to an audience of 250 clinical research industry stakeholders at the 2022 European Site Solutions Summit in Lisbon, Portugal.
