Formedix releases OpenClinica EDC plugin to drive efficiencies in clinical trials
Formedix, leading provider of clinical trial automation software and consultancy services, is delighted to announce the new product release, as a result of their partnership with OpenClinica, LLC, producers of the world’s most widely used open source electronic data capture software. The collaboration brings an integration between Formedix Origin universal clinical trial design tools and OpenClinica’s uniquely flexible open source system for Electronic Data Capture (EDC) and Clinical Data Management to the market.
The product, named Formedix plugin for OpenClinica, is now available and joins the leading range of EDC integrations offered by Formedix. The plugin for OpenClinica integrates with Formedix Universal Design Tool, Origin, to merge study specification and EDC build into one process which significantly reduces OpenClinica study build times-in some cases by more than 65%. Other capabilities include study build automation and drag-and-drop reuse, enhanced by leveraging portable, vendor neutral CDISC designs.
CROs and sponsors now have even greater choice when selecting an EDC system with the introduction of OpenClinica plugin and its diverse capabilities. Companies no longer need to struggle to meet sponsor requests or train in multiple EDC systems because, with Formedix, training only needs to be given for one study design tool.
Mark Wheeldon, CEO of Formedix, was invited to present at OC13, the 2013 OpenClinica Global Conference, earlier this year, to discuss using CDISC standards to drive efficiencies in study set-up and build with OpenClinica. He also spoke in detail about how Formedix is working with partners, such as OpenClinica, to develop cutting-edge solutions to help achieve further reductions in study build times.
Mark said, “Formedix plugin enables users to design in one environment and interface with multiple systems, broadening the scope of CROs and EDC vendors. By providing a vendor neutral solution, our customers can choose one, work with all. The OpenClinica plugin allows us to continue our ongoing mission of delivering more choice for study build, as well as reducing the need for training in multiple systems.”
He added, “We are the only independent provider of multi-vendor solutions for clinical trial automation and we continue to build our network of technology partnerships to enhance this proposition. We are delighted to add to our wide portfolio of plugin tools and partner with OpenClinica, to offer even more choice to our customers.”
Today, Formedix also has Tplugin integrations with Medidata Rave, Nextrial’s Prism, Perceptive Informatics’ DataLabs and OmniComm System’s TrialMaster as well as the ability to publish paper CRFs and Define.pdf.
Formedix clinical trial automation software and services enable you to remove manual, expensive, inefficient and labor intensive tasks from study set-up, EDC build, validation and submission publication processes.
In fact, across every facet of your end-to-end clinical trial, the time and cost savings they deliver speak for themselves and continue to do so time and time again…
Formedix saves 68% in set-up time and 55% in EDC build time. With 70% reuse of your content, resources are cut by 23%. It’s all in the numbers.
