IT-supported patient recruitment, serious adverse event reporting as well as making information about clinical trials accessible to the public on websites, are still major challenges in clinical trials. Too often the distribution of information about trials being performed within a hospital across numerous institutions and IT systems is a barrier to provide efficient IT support for such scenarios. Thus, the essential prerequisite to mastering those challenges is to achieve one single point of truth with adequate, complete, accurate and up-to-date information about all clinical trials running at a hospital. We describe the design and implementation of such a single source clinical trial registry serving multiple purposes at a university hospital.
