BioClinica Launches Clinical Technology Breakthrough - Trident IWR Advanced System Design Revolutionizes IVR/IWR

NEWTOWN, Pa., Oct 18, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- --Provides the Ability to Build Complex Trials in a Faster and Less Costly Manner without the Need for Programming

BioClinica(R), Inc., /quotes/comstock/15*!bioc/quotes/nls/bioc (BIOC 3.69, +0.01, +0.24%) , a leading global provider of clinical trial management services, today announced the launch of its new IVR/IWR (interactive voice response/interactive web response) platform, Trident IWR, at the 2010 Society for Clinical Data Management Annual Conference (SCDM). Trident IWR's unique interface provides clinical operations personnel with an intuitive way to directly set up, monitor, and maintain randomization and supplies for their clinical trials, in a fraction of the time previously required.

"We believe that Trident will fundamentally change the IVR/IWR market. It provides the pharmaceutical industry with the technological innovation to drive the efficiencies their business requires. Trident gives customers the ability to build complex trials in a quicker and less costly manner than previous alternatives which require the development of custom programming for each new clinical trial," said Mark Weinstein, CEO of BioClinica. "Sponsors who choose to standardize their IVR/IWR platform with BioClinica technologies will speed their research and development processes with greater control than ever before."

Designed from inception as a web-based system, Trident simultaneously delivers world-class IVR phone support through the same simplified configuration process. It is fully synchronized with BioClinica Optimizer, the world's leading clinical supply simulation and visualization package. Study designs simulated in Optimizer can configure Trident IWR to precisely match the optimal scenario identified using Optimizer. After deployment, Trident data can update Optimizer, and then Optimizer can re-simulate and reforecast, driving a process that will radically change the way clinical trials can be managed. BioClinica will conduct educational Trident-related webinars beginning in November 2010. For more information about these sessions please visit:

Trident was designed by the team who created the world's first parameter-driven IWR for a top five global pharmaceutical company. That software, designed by Tourtellotte Solutions, a company that BioClinica acquired in September 2009, is currently being used in more than 150 active clinical trials, and has been used in more than 300 trials since its inception.
