UC Davis research teams find added value to online study management tools


In the COVID-19 crisis, the Clinical and Translational Science Center in partnership with StudyPages, is contributing to keeping our participants safe. More and more teams are using the StudyPages platform to recruit and manage study participants remotely. StudyPages has a modern cloud phone (VoIP) solution for clinical research. Study teams can make calls directly from their computer to (potential) research participants using a headset or microphone. In response to COVID-19 shelter-in-place mandate, the tool became more utilized than ever before. Study teams can activate the calling feature directly from their study dashboard, in a self-service fashion. StudyPages VoIP alleviates the need to make calls from personal devices (showing personal number or using a cell phone plan) or needing to be physically present in an office with a desk phone. StudyPages VoIP is making a big difference for study teams and adoption has surged. In Q1 of 2020, a total of 404 calls were made. Usage has significantly jumped in April with an additional 30 studies activating their StudyPages Phone and 259 calls being made so far. For Q2, we're already projecting 1170 calls (an increase of 200% or more compared to Q1!). For more information about StudyPages and it features, go to https://studypages.com/help/
