Animal Protocol Management Added to Cayuse Research Suite
PORTLAND, OR – March 31, 2017 — Cayuse, a leader in cloud-based research administration solutions, today announced the release of Cayuse IACUC, the animal protocol management system that helps research institutions improve results by relieving administrative burden and mitigating compliance risk. By simplifying IACUC protocol completion, submission and committee review, Cayuse IACUC puts the humane care and use of animals first, while ensuring research complies with federal, state and institutional policies.
“The IACUC module from Cayuse is a vast improvement over our existing system. It simplifies day-to-day tasks and makes animal-related protocols much easier to review and track,” said Thomas Bailey, Committee Coordinator for Idaho State University and Cayuse IACUC beta customer. “We currently use Cayuse’s IRB module as well and are extremely pleased with it. I would recommend both of these products for any institution looking to improve their protocol review process.”
The 100 percent cloud-based solution combines the latest in AWS (Amazon Web Services) cloud technology with more than two decades of Cayuse’s research administration experience to provide a superior user experience. Featuring an intuitive and easy to navigate interface, Cayuse IACUC enables improved collaboration between investigators, the IACUC office and reviewers, alleviating administrative burden while also mitigating risk and ensuring compliance.
Cayuse IACUC puts the power to create, modify and customize forms and questionnaires in the hands of users, eliminating the need for IT help or costly consulting fees that other solutions require. Innovative Cayuse Smart Forms provide an interactive, drag-and-drop designer to help users easily create institution-specific forms and complex questionnaires, even with progressive logic (skipping or adding questions based on answers to other questions).
Built by research administrators, Cayuse IACUC includes powerful features that add value beyond automation to the common processes faced by all IACUC research institutions:
- Streamlines IACUC protocol completion, submission and committee review, storing all supporting protocol data in one place
- Automatically updates protocol status as protocols route through the review process, updating relevant tasks and notifying key participants of action items
- Simplifies full committee meeting management with automated agenda creation, attendance tracking and meeting minute storage in one location
