Software Resources


If you are interested in developing a research registry to collect potentially interested participants, or if you are interested in seeing people who have already expressed interest in research and may be potential participants for your study, Registar provides a solution.


eNOTIS is a web-based study enrollment log that helps to improve safety and security for study participant enrollment. It tracks participants on your study and can help you identify other studies that a participant may already be on.
