Castor’s all-in-one eConsent platform
Castor’s suite of modular eConsent solutions creates clinical trial efficiencies from recruitment and screening, all the way to direct data capture and analysis. Each virtual element can be integrated into your traditional, hybrid, or fully decentralized trial as a standalone solution, or packaged together as an all-in-one eConsent platform.
Recruit and enroll participants with a seamless onboarding experience
Increase patient access and diversity with remote enrollment. Recruit your participants through a customized recruitment portal and pre-screen with questionnaires to help filter appropriate participants. After consent, patient data from enrolled participants can automatically be updated in Castor EDC, ready for the next step.
Consent study participants remotely with secure video visits
Host remote consent visits with video and engage participants in the comfort of their home. No switching between applications – video calls, signatures, and questionnaires are all built-in to reduce complexity and increase your patient’s experience.
