Dashboard Embedding – Comprehend Clinical's dashboards can now be embedded on any external website, web portal, SharePoint site and more. Based only in HTML and JavaScript, Comprehend dashboards also work on any mobile device, including the iPad and iPhone. Comprehend dashboards make it easy for users at any level of an organization, including data managers, CRAs, study managers and clinical operations executives to identify and adjust based on data trends. When a Comprehend dashboard raises a question that isn't immediately answered within the dashboard, users can drill down (or "click through") into any other pre-existing report or visualization.

Expanded Chart Selection – Comprehend Clinical 1.1 now includes a range of new charts – including Pareto charts, candlestick plots, regression lines, pie charts and dashboard meters – that all enable full drill-downs into any other chart on the system and intelligently handle missing data. When certain points aren't displayed on a graph because of missing or null data, Comprehend Clinical 1.1. is able to intelligently describe what was hidden, and allow the user to explore it further.

Comprehend Systems will be demonstrating its latest version of Comprehend Clinical at The DIA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, June 24-28, at booth #2516.
