Introducing a safer, more secure method of payment for clinical research
MCW's Automated Participant Payments System
The Forte Payments System allows research coordinators and other support staff to log in and authorize a payment directly to a MCW Compensation Card, reducing the time and effort of processing paper checks.
The MCW Compensation Card is an easy-to-use reloadable debit card that can be dispensed to a participant at the time of their study visit. These cards can be used at ATM’s and anywhere VISA is accepted. The MCW Compensation Card project was initiated to offer an alternative to paper checks, and to provide a payment option that would appeal to a greater number of participants. Individuals who may need the funds to travel to and from appointments or who may have difficulty accepting a check payment will benefit from this fast and efficient option. Participant satisfaction is expected to increase because of the use of Compensation Cards.
Sponsored by the Office of Research and Finance departments and developed with input from key clinical research stakeholders, this solution benefits investigators and their research teams as well as study participants. The new Forte Payments System allows research coordinators and other support staff to log in and authorize a payment directly to a MCW Compensation Card, reducing the time and effort of processing paper checks. Additionally, the Forte Payments perfectly complements another Forte product, the OnCore Clinical Trials Management System. Studies entered in OnCore can easily feed study information and participant details to the new Forte Payment System.
