Scheduler is a free application that streamlines clinical research center operations by:

  • Enabling study staff to schedule research subjects in real-time directly in the system
  • Allowing CRCs to model out their resources for complex visits
  • Providing information to CRC staff about the daily activity on the unit
  • Generating reports for CRC leadership to better manage the operations of the unit

The free software is an open source project and we welcome institutions to adopt it and contribute to the community. Our team is also continuing active development on the application, enhancing and adding new features, as well as increasing interoperability with other systems, such as EMRs and other open source software developed by our collaborators.

We hold bi-weekly open source community calls where you can join in on the conversation and ask questions. The calls are currently scheduled for  every other Tuesday 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM Eastern. If you are interested in learning more about or joining our community calls, please contact .
