RadMD is partnering with AG Mednet to provide a new ‘collect and hold’ service, which will provide sponsor’s with real-time image access.

Under the new partnership, the management services organization RadMD will use AG MedNet’s Judi//Imaging platform to provide a “collect and hold” service for sponsors not planning a blinded independent central review (BICR).

According to AG Mednet, the partnership creates a “one-stop-shop” ​for sponsors collecting image data that is then delivered to one or more trial repositories.

Rick Patt, co-founder and principal of RadMD said in a statement that this type of imaging in trials is a cost-effective alternative for sponsors, as it improves site read quality and reliability, with a fully reconciled imaging database and remote viewing capabilities.

“During a trial, images are gathered in a cloud database and the sponsor or designee can review the images from the results of the site reads,”​ Patt explained. “This new process nets improved confidence in site read results while giving sponsors control of their imaging database,”​ he continued.

With the growth of virtual clinical trials, Patt said the need for “occasional” ​visits to a clinical site for evaluation still exists. Though imaging often has to be done at hospitals or outpatient centers, thus affecting the virtual trial processes.

“This overall process is essentially an insurance policy for the sponsor, as the prospective costs of collecting and storing the images is a fraction of the cost and time to retrospectively collect images should the sponsor wait until after the trial is completed,”​ said Patt.

The system also includes integrated US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) compliant workflows, structured site reads, cloud storage, and desktop image access.
