PAREXEL International Corporation : Perceptive Informatics and Fujitsu Systems West Limited Integrate Data Management Technologies to Enhance Clinical Trial Effectiveness in Japan
ClinPhone® RTSM and DDworks 21™ streamline and expedite data collection and access to provide clients with greater clinical insights
Tokyo, October 9, 2013 - Perceptive Informatics, a leading eClinical solutions provider and technology subsidiary of PAREXEL International Corporation (NASDAQ: PRXL), and Fujitsu Systems West Limited (FWEST), a regional systems engineering company of Fujitsu, today announced a technology partnership to improve clinical trial data management in Japan.
Through the collaboration, the companies have integrated Perceptive's ClinPhone® RTSM (Randomization and Trial Supply Management) solution and Fujitsu's DDworks 21™ Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS). The new offering automatically transfers data from ClinPhone® RTSM into DDworks 21™. In addition to eliminating manual data entry, it makes study logistical information immediately available for proactive decision making.
"Clinical trial management is often hindered by complex, time-consuming, manual processes for collecting, aggregating and rationalizing data," said Graham Bunn, Vice President of Partnerships, Perceptive Informatics. "Integrating our industry-leading technologies will replace fragmented methods for capturing and leveraging data. By streamlining these processes, clients can conduct clinical trials more efficiently."
Built on the Perceptive MyTrials ™ platform and combined with PAREXEL's clinical expertise, ClinPhone® RTSM utilizes validated randomization methods, automated inventory control, dispensing and titration management, emergency code break capabilities and real-time supply reporting. It also provides sophisticated reporting to monitor trial management performance, analyze trending and forecasting information, and deliver in-depth data analysis. Global clinical trials can be supported in multiple languages through the solution's secure access, detailed audit trails, transaction logging, and compliance with US FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and Japan MHLW ER/ES.
DDworks 21™, Fujitsu's GCP risk management solution, is a leading software offering for clinical trial quality and regulatory compliance in Japan. Incorporating PMDA regulations and J-GCP guidelines, best industry practices and quality processes, it has been implemented by more than 80 pharmaceutical companies since 1996.
