WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Phase Forward (NASDAQ: PFWD), a leading provider of data management solutions for clinical trials and drug safety, today announced the latest version of the Phase Forward™ Clinical Development Center (CDC), a centralized solution for integrating, managing and analyzing clinical information. This new release focuses on streamlining the preparation of clinical trial data for analysis by providing a flexible and effective workflow to track, manage and reconcile data discrepancies that can be found within different data sources.
The release also offers “out-of-the-box” integration with the Phase Forward InForm™ global trial management (GTM) electronic data capture (EDC) solution. The integration automates study set-up and delivery of InForm data to the CDC – significantly reducing data handling time and effort. The integration also provides data managers with direct links back to InForm, enabling them to simplify the process of reviewing study source data or issuing queries.
“Our customers are looking for a centralized solution to efficiently process the increasing amounts of data collected within clinical trials,” said Martin Young, Phase Forward Senior Vice President, Integration and Product Strategy. “This new version of Phase Forward CDC delivers a means to more expeditiously and effectively manage this process. The enhanced integration with InForm extends this benefit, giving our customers a way to leverage their existing investments by providing even greater levels of automation and efficiency.”
Demands on data managers and biostatisticians to prepare and “clean” data for analysis continue to grow as today’s increasingly complex and distributed clinical trials generate unprecedented amounts of electronic information, including patient and lab data, images, statistical programs, plans and other supporting documents. The Phase Forward CDC application helps data managers more efficiently load, transform and reconcile data – streamlining workflows and improving the readiness of new datasets for interim analysis. The combination of this new functionality with the existing open systems approach, providing the ability to integrate data from multiple systems providers, and the powerful automated traceability and control capabilities of the CDC enables sponsors to better manage, track and ensure analysis is current and accurate.
