    CRF Health is a Software House, developing software solutions used in Clinical Trials. Our product base includes eCOA and Trial Consent. The R&D teams operate out Helsinki, Finland and Iasi, Romania and our customer facing, Technical Services and Delivery Services teams operate out of the UK, the US and from summer 2018, Romania. Our client facing teams comprise of Project Managers, Project Co-Ordinators, Project Assistants, Application Specialists and Associate Application Specialists. Each clinical trial we operate, for our Pharmaceutical clients, require unique tailoring to the tool. The core tool has features including diary reminders and alarms and the scope to capture results from questions written to suit each drugs trial. Our Application Specialists work with the Pharmaceutical companies to ensure that the tool meets the specific needs - creation of alarms and diary reminders, bespoke questions written, so that we can help our clients in understanding patients, volunteers or subjects experience in the drugs trial. Our technical writers are a key component to ensure the user experience. User documentation needs to be created specific to each study. Documentation is written for different groups of people, the clinicians and the subjects. The look and the feel of the documentation needs to be user friendly and we also need the technical writers to be able to take a technical specification and turn it in to language suitable for non-technical people.

     

    We are building the Technical Services and Delivery Services teams. The Technical Writers will work closely with all team members and ultimately will grow to a team of five in Iasi.
