This page will provide research teams with information on how to move trials quickly from initial proposal through contract execution.
Additionally, this page describes tools in Allscripts PM electronic health record for sponsored clinical trials at the LSU Healthcare Network Clinical Trials Office (CTO). When research subjects are enrolled on a study that involves clinical services at the LSUHN (LSUHN), there are requirements within Allscripts to properly identify, schedule, charge for clinical services and document clinical study activities.
All research services utilizing LSUHN clinical services must have a research guarantor account set up in Allscripts done through the LSUHN CTO.
The purpose for this procedure is to facilitate quality clinical trial research and provide effective, efficient evaluation of new pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
The CTO can assist principal investigators (PI) with trials funded by industry contracts. CTO start-up services include comprehensive budget development and coverage analysis, contract negotiation, regulatory guidance and budgeting/billing assistance.
The following initiatives are described below: confidentiality agreements, feasibility meetings to assess new protocols, budget preparation and contract negotiations.
