Outsourcing-Pharma presents a roundup of eClinical technology news, including “omnics” at Oracle and DDi at DIA.
Oracle has added “omnics” capabilities to its Translational Research Center to support the push into personalised medicines. The Translational Research Center was introduced in September but lacked genomics data analysis capabilities.
“Molecular data is a critical component of any translational medicine initiative, and Oracle Health Sciences Translational Research Center now has the power to help researchers address the big data challenges associated with bioinformatics”, Neil de Crescenzo, senior vice president at Oracle said.
MakroCare is introducing its new electronic data capture (EDC) at a DIA workshop in Japan this week. A division of the India-based contract research organisation (CRO), DDi, will introduce the Japanese version of mEDC v2.0 at the event.
Datatrak began the year by updating two of its tools. First Datatrak introduced a version of its CTMS (clinical trial management system), uCTMS, to improve data management throughout the clinical trial process.
“The new release of our CTMS product improves visibility for executive management and gives clinical operations teams more control of their pipeline, especially when leveraging collaborative partnerships”, Laurence Birch, CEO of Datatrak, said.
Datatrak followed up the news by introducing an update to its clinical trial supply management tool, uIRT. Chris Wilke, chief technology officer at Datatrak, said: “We listened to our clients and have now turned over the control of managing trial randomisations to sponsors and CROs.”
Harrison Clinical Research has chosen BioClinica for its CTMS. An “extensive product search” began after Harrison’s previous CTMS supplier stopped its support of the product and ended when the CRO decided on OnPoint from BioClinica.
“Both our information technology and clinical teams liked BioClinica's team and the technology, and in particular, how flexible and affordable it was compared to other solutions”, Monika Huber, group compliance manager and project director of Harrison, said.
Trial By Fire Solutions is pushing into the clinical imaging services sector. The eClinical business is now providing its SimpleCTMS to a ‘US-based global imaging services company’. Having inked the deal Trial By Fire Solutions plans to expand in the imaging sector.
“As they are a leading clinical imaging organisation supporting a variety of life science clients, this is a great opportunity for us to service this important market”, Jon Cecchettini, co-founder and chief technology officer of Trial By Fire Solutions, said.
