CTMS update ready to roll

Akaza will be offering test drives of the post-beta OpenClinica 3.0 software at the annual meeting of the Society of Clinical Research Associates later this month and at the Society for Clinical Data Management conference in early October.

The web-based clinical trials software for electronic data capture and clinical data management lets researchers collect data via electronic case report forms and lab data import. It also provides tools for data management and trial monitoring. The open-source software supports CDISC standards and complies with such industry and government regulations and guidelines as 21 CFR Part 11, GCP, and HIPAA.

Version 3.0, the company says, features automatic job scheduling, medical coding improvements, and a web services interface.

The company announced the beta release of the software in July, saying that new version "builds on the software's strengths and includes a series of new features requested by our users," the company says. Improvements cited in the earlier announcement include source data verification tools, task-oriented navigation and study dashboards. Development manager Paul Galvin, also cited "an order of magnitude improvement in application speed for studies greater than 10,000 subjects and a million data points."
