Last month, OpenClinica reached its most significant milestone to date in a multiyear effort to “make the complex simple”–and speedier–in the design and conduct of clinical studies. The recent release of their cloud-hosted platform for clinical data management enables researchers to fast-track the transition from clinical study idea to fully-built, regulatory-compliant system for the capture, aggregation, validation, and reporting of high-quality participant data. A webinar introducing the new OpenClinica will be held on 22-January-2018 at 11am GMT-5.
According to the company, ensuring efficiency and ease-of-use, without sacrificing security or data integrity, was the guiding principle in the development of their latest software. “Whether you’re a drug developer, a study operations professional, or a patient, the rising costs and growing timelines of clinical trials ought to trouble you,” remarks OpenClinica CEO Cal Collins. “That’s why we’re laser-focused on efficiency at every stage of study lifecycle, from trial design to actionable, real-time metrics on enrollment and data collection. The investment a study team makes in a data management solution might consume just one or two percent of the total project budget, but it bears heavily on the biggest cost drivers, including site retention and monitoring. A data management system that enables more automation, provides an optimal user experience for research coordinators and monitors, and has the intelligence to make operations more adaptive to the clinical facts on the ground, offers the potential to reduce trial costs in amounts ten to twenty times that of the software expense. It can also eliminate many of the delays endemic to subject enrollment, data cleaning, and database lock. That’s the solution we set out to create.”
