BIOCLINICA UNVEILS PLATFORM FOR INTEGRATED CLINICAL OPERATIONS BASED ON MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGIES - Will Demonstrate eClinical Technology Innovation at 46thDIA Annual Meeting, June 13-17
NEWTOWN, PA, June 14, 2010 - BioClinicaTM, Inc., (NASDAQ: BIOC), a global provider of clinical trial management services, will exhibit at the 46th Drug Information Association (DIA) Annual Meeting from June 13- 17, 2010 in Washington, D.C., where it will showcase the BioClinica eClinical Technology Suite as well as introduce the BioClinica Integrated Operations Platform (BIOP).
This advancement in clinical support technology leverages the power, the familiarity, and the ubiquity of Microsoft Office and SharePoint platforms to deliver a real world window on clinical operations -- across studies and across clinical technologies. This far-reaching development will enable BioClinica to make mission-critical operational data accessible in Microsoft Office and SharePoint applications that most customers already use.
"We are eager to share details about our integration with the Microsoft platform during the DIA, as we believe it represents the future of clinical information accessibility," said Mark Weinstein, CEO of BioClinica. "Our customers told us that they needed a simpler way to centralize and share their operational data for managing clinical trials. Through our work with Microsoft we are embracing the SharePoint and Office tools that many customers already have and use. Unlike other solutions, this platform untethers the clinical data, making the data more easily accessible and therefore more usable." SharePoint is one of the fastest growing server products in Microsoft history, with more than 100 million licenses sold. The platform delivers increased workflow efficiencies among life sciences colleagues, partners and customers. At DIA, BioClinica will feature its full-service eClinical suite, including the BioClinica Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS).
BioClinica CTMS utilizes SharePoint, creating customer oversight to eClinical workflow and access to data and reports through the Microsoft Office platform. "To keep up with market demands, life sciences companies are under increased pressure to speed the pace of clinical trials and quickly bring new drugs to market," said Michael Naimoli, director of life sciences industry solutions, Microsoft. "With the integration of our Office and SharePoint platforms, BioClinica customers can liberate their data for a comprehensive, real-time view into studies and pertinent information, with Office Smart clinical trial management systems."
