clinicalRSVP (Clinical Research Subject Verification Program), an online participant registry that prevents clinical trial volunteers from being enrolled in more than one trial at a time, recently contributed key insight on subject registries in a featured session at the 21st Annual Association of Clinical Pharmacology Units (ACPU) Meeting held at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Md. The session focused on the impact of subject registries and their capacity to reduce business and safety risks posed by dual enrollment.Notice how, in the last sentence, biometrics are used to enhance privacy, rather than to erode it.
Smith added that for a registry to be truly effective, biometric identification is necessary for complete accuracy and participant privacy. clinicalRSVP is the only registry in the industry that provides biometric technology to validate participant eligibility.
“We chose a biometric system over a non-biometric system to minimize the required demographic information needed to identify subjects allowing us to maximize subject privacy and confidentiality,” Smith stated.
