We have designed case report forms for bay area biotech companies for over 7 years.
Our work within the Biotechnology and hi-tech industries has given us an excellent understanding of the growing design and data management needs of the industries. We are experienced in designing printed CRFs, PDF forms, eCRFs, and web forms. Our detail-orientation contributes to building quality data management tools where correct and complete data collection is critical. We perform other clinical data management tasks such as creating CRF completion guidelines (instructions) and annotated CRFs, performing UAT of eCRFs, writing specifications, evaluating EDC/CDMS vendors, planning, and project management. In addition to detailed and accurate CRF design where usability is essential we can design other forms for your specific business needs. Our hands-on, customer service attitude means that we take you through the step-by-step design process beginning with the initial design and finishing with the final custom designed piece.
