LogiXML, Inc., a leading provider of web-based business intelligence reporting and analysis tools, and Sierra Scientific Software, Inc. (Sierra) today announced their strategic partnership to add LogiXMLÂ?s LGX Info functionality to SierraÂ?s Clinical Research Information System (CRIS) version 8.

LogiXML, Inc., a leading provider of web-based business intelligence reporting and analysis tools, and Sierra Scientific Software, Inc. (Sierra) today announced their strategic partnership to add LogiXML’s LGX Info functionality to Sierra’s Clinical Research Information System (CRIS) version 8.

Sierra’s CRIS is the first truly integrated, fully interactive, part 11-compliant clinical research software package for the FDA-regulated medical products industry. CRIS provides a single system completely integrating all the functionality for clinical trials management, clinical data management, safety data management, and investigational materials management.

CRIS benefits all levels of clinical trials practitioners from Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) to executive managers who currently rely on separate, role-specific data management systems with limited or no interconnectivity. Use of these separate systems frequently results in inefficient data silos that hinder the clinical trials management process and impede the timely identification of issues within the conduct of trials. Integration of LogiXML’s LGX Info into CRIS adds easy-to-use, web-based reporting and analysis functionality to the system, enabling non-technical clinical and business users to build their own reports and perform in-depth data analysis on key clinical trial and business data. In addition, using LogiXML tools, personalized interactive dashboards can be created to give users immediate visibility to information.

“To achieve maximum efficiency, all relevant clinical trial information needs to be readily available to everyone involved in the clinical trial process,” said David Thomas, CEO of Sierra Scientific Software. “CRIS creates a common repository for all of the data that is collected throughout each phase of a clinical trial. LogiXML’s solutions give CRAs, clinicians, financial managers, medical officers and clinical trial managers access to the full range of information within CRIS and allows them to work with and share that information easily. Data security and integrity are assured. Users interact with the information using an intuitive, web-based user interface that gives them the ability to perform their own “what-if” analysis without technical assistance. By integrating LogiXML’s LGX Info into Sierra’s CRIS, we believe we are offering a tool that will greatly enhance the efficiency of the eClinical research process.”

The integration of the entire clinical research process into a single solution also has significant advantages in reducing the cost of acquisitation and maintenance of multiple systems.

Linda Höwe, Vice President of Business Development for LogiXML, says that the new partnership with Sierra Scientific Software illustrates the far-reaching capabilities of LogiXML’s solutions.

“CRIS is an excellent example of how LogiXML’s products integrate seamlessly into partners’ web-based solutions to add powerful reporting and analysis functionality. All of LogiXML’s tools leverage technical standards such as XML and .NET that simplify integration and provide scalability for the future. We are excited about our partnership with Sierra. We believe that CRIS will make a significant contribution to improving clinical research processes and LogiXML is proud to be part of that solution.”

CRIS v8 is scheduled for release in the early first quarter, 2005.
