Perceptive integrates eClinical suite
The combination of Perceptive’s different technologies is intended to enable more effective management and operation of clinical trials and increase value for the user.
Bill Byrom, senior director, product strategy at Perceptive, explained: "In the past, clinical data were simply moved between applications to reduce the need to reconcile independent databases. Perceptive has made integration scalable by implementing cutting-edge integration middleware.”
Perceptive believes that by integrating these applications it can simplify processes and optimise output for users, who will “benefit noticeably” from using the suite.
Byrom added: “By enabling the core functionality of one solution to be accessed from another, this convergence of our solutions is a dramatic shift in the way that technologies can be used together to streamline workflow while facilitating more effective trial management."
Deconstructing the suite
The software suite includes Perceptive’s combined electronic data capture-integrated voice Response (EDC-IVR) software, the Perceptive Portal and a clinical technology integration platform (CTIP).
EDC-IVR is described as a “key component” of the suite and allows users to perform real time randomisation and dispensation directly from the DataLabs EDC technology.
Perceptive Portal is a secure, central access point for documentation and materials relating to the clinical trial. By accessing it users can view metrics data drawn from Perceptive’s other technologies, including DataLabs EDC and ClinPhone randomisation and trial supply management (RTSM).
The third new component of the suite is Perceptive’s CTIP, which enables the automated exchange of data across different systems without having to modify applications.
CTIP helps “diverse clinical trial applications to work together synergistically” by providing a platform for two-way, real-time data interchange.
