MedSciNet has developed an electronic scheduling system to help coordinate clinical research facility (CRF) administration and successfully deployed it at GSTT Clinical Research Facilities at Guy's and St Thomas' hospitals in London, UK.

The scheduling system helps research facility staff plan patient admissions, provides a visual overview of facility occupancy, and allows for easy scheduling or re-scheduling of appointments. The system also assists researchers at filling and generating Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) pro forma documents and helps maintain a list of trials with accompanying documentation while providing transparency in the process.

The scheduling system can be used to extract and display facility resource allocation statistics allowing a clear view of facility capacity utilisation and potential bottlenecks in facility operation.
