McLaren Center for Research and Innovation continues the integration of the IBM Clinical Trials Management System (CTMS) to support research operations across
McLaren Health Care. This software allows clinical research administration to streamline current workflows and efficiently manage study progress and finances. IBM CTMS for Sites has been successfully implemented at five clinical research locations: McLaren Greater Lansing, McLaren Bay Region, McLaren Flint,
McLaren Macomb, and McLaren Northern Michigan. A post "˜Go-Live' Health Check has been completed for all sites except for McLaren Northern Michigan, which is expected to be completed in March 2019. Continued utilization of CTMS will drive research best practices and facilitate consistency in research operations across McLaren Health Care.
