BioClinica®, Inc., (NASDAQ: BIOC), a global provider of clinical trial management solutions, announced the latest release of BioClinica Express EDC. This modern, web-based platform is a comprehensive electronic data capture (EDC) solution that adds speed and quality to every part of the clinical trial process. Enhanced to utilize the latest web technologies, Express EDC makes it easier to monitor protocol compliance and close studies faster while meeting necessary regulations and guidelines. The newest Express application improves on the usability that sites already consider 'easiest' with flexible, scalable technology that coordinates and organizes the collection and dissemination of clean data.
Express joins BioClinica's other solutions to improve the efficiency and flexibility required for modern clinical trials. Express is fully integrated in real-time with BioClinica's Trident IWR and OnPoint CTMS systems. This enables real time data exchange between Express and OnPoint CTMS to support site payment data or visit status updates. Complementing best-in-class functionality is a web services architecture that communicates in real-time between applications and maximizes data visibility and utility viaSharePoint with built-in connectivity to Outlook and other Microsoft Office applications. Express also provides on-demand exports for further analysis in SAS or other analytical tools.
"This release of Express EDC is a major advancement for the BioClinica Suite. Sponsors and CROs can choose any of our world-class solutions as a stand-alone or a starting point - then augment functionality for any study when they need it," said Peter Benton, President of eClinical Solutions for BioClinica. "With the only portfolio of eClinical applications all created within the last five years, BioClinica offers a remarkably different approach with fresh ideas to address the challenges facing clinical organizations globally."
BioClinica Express provides new capabilities for EDC power users that make slicing and dicing incoming data fast and easy and automatically encodes medical terms within the same application. Role-specific dashboards focus attention where it's needed the most and data managers can tag or bookmark data to facilitate workflow, save customized data and query listings as 'private' or 'public' for later use. Study build timelines are minimized using an innovative design environment that reduces programming and maximizes re-usability.
Express delivers CDISC-compliant output at the end of the trial to save sponsors time and maximize exchange or integration with partners. Express can also incorporate external data such as labs, PK data, imaging metadata, and other instrumentation data with the clinical data during the trial. This process eliminates end-of-study reconciliation, provides cleaner data faster, and simplifies the submission process.
