OmniComm Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: OMCM), one of the fastest growing companies in the electronic data capture (EDC) marketplace, today announced that the company's TrialMaster EDC product has connected to Microsoft HealthVault.

HealthVault enables users to connect to and share information across the health ecosystem and facilitates the upload of data from home monitoring devices like blood glucose monitors, blood pressure cuffs and pedometers.

TrialMaster will leverage this patient-centric platform in a variety of ways including Patient Diary, Continuity of Care Records (CCR), direct device data upload and more to provide more efficient, accurate information for those patients participating in clinical trials.
