MACRO EDC technology
Proven and trusted EDC for clinical research
MACRO is developed to meet the clinical research needs of pharmaceutical companies and major CROs. InferMed now offers this industrial-strength EDC to academic medical centres, clinical trials units, therapeutic area research groups, and charitable organisations, at a price they can afford.
Hence MACRO is well established in leading academic research centres and in the not-for-profit sector where it is used for hundreds of trials and patient registries. It is the solution of choice for many UK and European CTUs and academic research groups. A large proportion of UKCRC (UK Clinical Research Collaboration)-registered clinical trials units in the UK have chosen to adopt MACRO to provide a highly compliant, validated system for running clinical trials.
An ECRIN (European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network) survey showed MACRO to be the most widely used CDMS application in European academic research units.
What do customers say
Once the 'thinking' part of database design has been done, the actual implementation in MACRO is easy and rapid. Information Systems Director, CTRU Leeds
MACRO makes entered data immediately available for CRAs, CDMs and Statistics. Trial Office Director, ABCSG
MACRO provides a solid CDMS platform that is much simpler to validate than our previous bespoke system. Trial databases can be delivered much more quickly and with much less reliance on technical programming. Information Systems Director, CTRU Leeds
MACRO gives us data security, regulatory compliance and allows us to implement complex databases in a controlled, timely manner. Trial Office Director, ABCSG
The MACRO features most useful to our organisation are its regulatory compliance, access to real-time data for oversight committee reports, it minimises the need for paper data archives and allows for rapid move from last patient visit to database lock, analysis and publication.
With MACRO it is far easier to achieve regulatory compliance than when developing bespoke applications. Information Systems Director, CTRU Leeds
MACRO v4 is perfectly suited to fulfil our vision where different clinical information systems are integrated, such as MedDRA, TENALEA, the EHR or clinical data warehousing. Furthermore, MACRO v4 is designed with international standards such as CDISC and SDTM in mind, which make interchanging data with other systems easier. CTCM
MACRO is web-based solution. There is no need to download anything to allow data entry staff to access studies and minimal data entry staff training is required as the system is highly intuitive.
MACRO is a state-of-the-art web-based data management system recognised in a series of medical institutes in Europe that will be ideally suited to the clinical study programme at our centre. Radboud University Nijmegen
InferMed is perhaps the most user-focussed company I have worked with, and the only one to possess a dedicated Community User Group, helping to direct product development and share working practices.
