Powerful EDC platform for trials

5 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: I used Macro when i worked in a company specialized in data collection and analysis for pharmaceutical companies. overall, i recommend Macro because it is trusted, reliable and cost effective.

Vorteile:

It is an accurate and reliable EDC program for designing clinical trials, creating data bases, managing patients visitations and monitoring the feedback. Training courses were great. Interface is focused and i can customize the layout of pages. I can easily export data for statistical analysis in many formats. Support team is very cooperative.

Nachteile:

Pricing could be a limitation for low budget companies. Hosted service sometimes stop, may be due to internet issues. I had trouble using Macro on tablets.

A good solution for a new clinical trials unit

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We use MACRO for all of our CTU studies. It is reliable, secure and easy to use. It has worked well for us.

Vorteile:

Good training course (initial and advanced). We use the hosted service (software as a service) which meant we didn’t need IT personnel to install and support it. The MACRO support team have been very helpful with quick response times.

Nachteile:

Functionality could be improved. There are a few work-arounds required, particularly with the hosted service.

Feature Remarks

3 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: A very complex patient management is being developed and the have been some good feature implementations but there are instances where much more is desired in terms of identifiable limitations when compared to other mainstream online applications.

Vorteile:

Familiar online data capture interface

Nachteile:

There is need for a lot of dynamism with the interface, possibly with the introduction of features for hiding objects/or controls and collapsing dead space rather than just deactivating them and keeping them in view of the users. It is vital for users to be able to deactivate and unneeded eForm or visits, at the moment this is not the case. Any eForm or Visit activated in error cannot be returned to its inactive state, littering the study with irrelevant form(s)/ visit(s).

Macro for end users

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We are working on our units first electronic Trial CRF, the process is going well and impressed what can be achieved through working with Elsevier programming/design

Vorteile:

Pros - Easy to view patient visit schedule, clearly visible warnings and data queries

Nachteile:

Cons - unless you have programmers available then reporting functionality is limited/ no way to blank pages from a top level when they are created/saved in error.

Dear Sarah, Thank you for your five star review of MACRO! It¿s great to hear that your first electronic trial is going well and we are delighted to be a part of it. You might be interested to know that one of our upcoming features is a new Data Reporter tool which allows you to create and save simple to complex data searches via a set of filters, so no programming required. And once a search has been created it can be used by other members of the team. I hope you will find this a useful tool. Many thanks, Helen Harbord | Technical Writer

Revier for MACRO

4 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: With the installation of MACRO, we have been able to provide a robust EDC solution to our researchers who needed a software to collect the clinical data of clinical trials.

Vorteile:

It is easy to use for both programmers and end users

Nachteile:

One of the cons I find is you can only access the design modules through a vpn directly to the servers where the program was installed and can not be accessed via web as other edc programs allow.

Antwort von Elsevier

vor 3 Jahren

Dear Maria, Thank you for your positive review of MACRO. We are happy to hear that you find it robust and easy to use. We understand your frustration at the lack of an online design module and are pleased to tell you that the next major version of MACRO will be entirely web-based. This means that your team will be able to perform all tasks online including setting up and designing studies, as well as collecting and reviewing subject data. Kind regards, Helen Harbord | Technical Writer

It leaks some points, but they do annual reviews with customers (Macro User Group) and they always listen to feature requests.

Infermed MACRO experience

4 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: MACRO is a good way to easily build Clinical Study databases, with a lot of inbuilt functions and useful modules

Vorteile:

The software has a lot of inbuilt functions that make building studies easy. Edit checks are easily coded also. Most tasks are accomplished with point and click interfaces

Nachteile:

It can have performance issues with poor network connections

Antwort von Elsevier

vor 3 Jahren

Dear Kevin. Thank you for your good rating of MACRO. We are glad that it allows you to set up studies effortlessly. We understand that MACRO needs good network connections to be fully enjoyable. This issue will be addressed in the next major version of MACRO which will have a lighter weight, web-focused interface.

Enabling academically led clinical trials with MACRO

4 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

Compared with other EDC systems at the same price point (or free alternatives) it offers a cost effective solution for running complex clinical trials in a regulatory compliant environment. Its built in Arezzo language allows for increasingly complex validations and derivations within a study to improve data quality at the point of collection.

Nachteile:

The current version 4 branch does not work on mobile or tablet devices which limits use in some scenarios. This should be resolved in the upcoming version 5 release. MACRO also does not currently support collection of data directly from participants which is a growing requirement in trials.

Antwort von Elsevier

vor 3 Jahren

Hello Adam. Thank you for your review of MACRO. We are pleased that you are satisfied with its value for money and emphasize the virtues of Arezzo, our engine. Requirements for having MACRO working on mobile devices is a priority for a number of our customers and rest assured this will be possible in the next major version of MACRO. Kind regards, Beatrice Schravendeel Implementation Coordinator, MACRO Customer Services

Vorteile:

Nachteile:

- not very modern design - not (yet) supporting mobile devices
