MAISi – Management Application for Investigator Sites

Welome to MAISi (Management App for Investigator Sites), the fully-featured CTMS (Clinical Trials Management System)!

Until now, the options available for managing clinical trials at an investigator site were either keeping multiple shared spreadsheets or buying expensive software unsuited to Australian conditions. MAISi is the game-changer. Beginning as a repository for clinical trials data at a major hospital in 2001, MAISi has evolved into a sophisticated workflow application to assist in most aspects of a research unit’s operations.
