Surface the right data to make informed decisions
Improve your clinical research operations strategies using comprehensive, diverse dashboards built through collaboration with top researchers.
Easily answer your most critical clinical research questions
Turnkey, intuitive dashboards deliver meaningful insights, with in-depth analysis of past performance, current state and projected outcomes.
These visualizations, built using the collective expertise of the customer community, allow you to make informed, proactive decisions and take your research operations to the next level.
Here are just a few questions you can answer using Forte Insights dashboards:
- Which studies are “problem protocols” and are failing to achieve enrollment targets?
- Which studies are currently in the process of study start-up and how are they progressing towards activation?
- Am I getting a representative sampling of my catchment area, by location, gender, race and ethnic status?
- How much staff time (effort) is going into activating a new study?
- How has accrual within a specific management group performed over time?
Forte Insights FAQs
Which fields are pulled from OnCore and EVAL?
Contact us to receive a spreadsheet to see where all variables used in Forte Insights are being pulled from OnCore and EVAL source fields.
Can I add users to access only certain information?
You can apply the same privileges that are utilized in OnCore to Insights, including the same set of protocols and fields to which a user has access.
Can I email information from the system?
Users can send emails directly from the system for specific dashboards by pulling in the exact protocol and related details that need attention.
How will I know if my data is valid once it’s in Forte Insights?
We have begun releasing data readiness dashboards, which we will continue to develop for each Forte Insights dashboard. Each data readiness dashboard will give you an overall score that represents how much you can trust your records, broken down by management group. Additionally, it shows where and what to fix (i.e., the specific invalid field for a protocol).
Do I need Forte Insights if I have dedicated report writers?
Absolutely! Forte Insights provides automated visualizations designed to answer common analytical questions in the clinical research enterprise. Leveraging industry standards and the knowledge base of our collaborators, Forte Insights provides organizations with standardized and easy-to-understand dashboards to view trends over time, current status, and forecasts of a wide variety of metrics in areas such as accrual, study activation, staff workload, finances, and publications. The regular updates to Forte Insights ensure that the most up-to-date techniques and analyses are being performed, allowing your internal report writers to focus on special projects and other tasks.
Forte Insights is not a means to replace report writers, statisticians, or IT teams, but is very much complementary to what they do. If anything, it will save them time to focus on other tasks at hand. You’re not just buying the reports you haven’t had a chance to create yet, but buying into the whole of what other peer organizations are doing.
