The new Clinical Conductor contains a myriad of enhancements that foster more precise reporting and analysis, resulting in greater confidence in the accuracy of study and patient information, yielding greater confidence in decision making and overall business management. Updates can be seen throughout the application, with enhancements made to billing compliance review processes, intuitive invoicing advancements, adverse event management and reporting, forecasting and overall system workflow efficiency. All enhancements to Clinical Conductor are aimed at meeting current and future industry needs while facilitating compliance, efficiency and profitability in conducted clinical research.
The billing compliance review enhancements in Clinical Conductor CTMS give organizations the tools they need to confidently identify charges that will be allocated to sponsors, Medicare, third-party payers and other financial entities in a manner that is compliant with federal and state regulations. This enhanced section of Clinical Conductor gives sites in-depth billing display pages that clearly highlight important information such as procedure details, CPT codes, completion locations and more. With this comes a granular audit trail of what and when an item was reviewed, as well as who the reviewer was. Sites also can restrict access to this functionality to specific users on their team. This billing compliance review functionality also flows to Clinical Conductor Enterprise users, who can review and give final approval on all items up for billing review.
The CTMS invoicing received detailed updates that give research organizations more flexibility and greater accuracy while reviewing and generating invoices. Now, organizations can implement varying invoice frequencies within a single budget, while adhering to predetermined invoicing caps. From there, invoices and reports can be generated in real time, with all relevant invoicing data directed to the forecasting reports within Clinical Conductor CTMS for the most accurate cash and revenue projection possible.
Clinical Conductor CTMS has received additions to the adverse event (AE/SAE) management functionality included in the system. Clinical Conductor now is fitted with an AE reporting wizard for more accurate and thorough reporting of AEs and SAEs. To build on this, users can add customized notes for additional AE information, in addition to having the ability to upload any other necessary documents that pertain to an adverse event. Monitors and sponsors also can access the real-time AE/SAE reports via Clinical Conductor portals to ensure compliance and patient safety is consistent with the study protocol.
