- Solution Drives Clinical Study Efficiencies and Cost Savings -
NEWTOWN, Pennsylvania, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioClinica®, Inc., a global provider of technology-enhanced clinical trial management solutions, today announced that Worldwide Clinical Trials, Inc. has selected BioClinica's OnPoint CTMS (clinical trial management system) to support international studies spanning all phases of drug development in diverse therapeutic areas. By implementing BioClinica's web-based OnPoint CTMS the global, full-service contract research organization (CRO) anticipates improved efficiencies in data flow and workflow with cost-savings in time, labor, and operational expenses.
"We believe well-integrated technologies enhance clinical development and the decision to replace our existing trial management system with BioClinica's OnPoint reflects this. It also gives us broader functionality along with predictable pricing," said Tom Wardle, Chief Operating Officer, Worldwide Clinical Trials. "After conducting an extensive evaluation of industry-leading CTMS providers, we selected OnPoint for its flexibility, scalability, and superior technical support." BioClinica's Office-smart CTMS utilizes Microsoft SharePoint to foster collaboration and connectivity in multi-site study environments.
OnPoint will provide role-based access to hundreds of Worldwide Clinical Trials users around the globe, including clinical research associates, monitors, study managers, operations and site personnel, as well as executives and sponsor users. "BioClinica's OnPoint will help us to deliver the right solution for each trial and every sponsor," Wardle said.
BioClinica's Peter Benton, President of eClinical Solutions explained, "With the large amount of data generated across so many trials and individual study activities, it can be hard to control and manage it all. Because OnPoint handles studies of any size and complexity securely and compliantly, we're seeing wide adoption by major players like Worldwide Clinical Trials and Harvard Clinical Research Institute. Everyone who sees our MVR wants it." BioClinica's innovative Monitor Visit Report (MVR) replaces conventional manual transcription with an electronic visit report that can be securely accessed and updated anytime and anywhere whether online or offline. BioClinica's MVR can save thousands of labor hours and dramatically reduce clinical trial costs. The achievement earned BioClinica a 2012 Microsoft Life Sciences Innovation Award.
OnPoint manages a clinical trial from the start and maintains role-based access control across the continuum, from study design through close-out and FDA submission. The end-to-end clinical trial management solution includes the tools to plan, startup, conduct, and manage studies and complete monitoring and regulatory compliance activities. It supports every study aspect, whether design, procedures, protocol, study arms, visits, forms, treatments, or payment.
BioClinica will host a complimentary webinar Primer for Data Managers on 2013 FDA Guidance and Regulations in an Age of eClinical Innovation on March 18 and hold its annual Global User Conference May 5 – 7 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
