BRANY (Biomedical Research Alliance of New York) has licensed its proprietary SMART (Study Management and Revenue Tracking) system to Tech Software, Inc., an information technology company that currently offers IRBManager, a fully Web-based software product that supports the administration of institutional review boards at hospitals throughout the country.
The BRANY SMART system is a clinical study management and revenue tracking system that allows study sites to develop study budgets and conduct cost analyses utilizing pricing information stored within the database. Users can also manage and store regulatory documents. The Web-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) also allows clients to track patient encounters, revenue, and accounts receivables. The SMART system, which is 21 CFR 11 ready, gives clinical research sites, research administration, and clinical trial offices the ability to develop their own customized work flows to track and monitor new study opportunities as they progress through a site or hospital’s internal review process. This includes budget, contract, conflict of interest, and IRB review. The SMART system also tracks enrollment against the study and includes integration with Tech’s IRBManager solution.
