Waltham, MA (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
OpenClinica, LLC announces that Pleasanton, CA-based CooperVision, a leading developer of contact lenses, has begun using the OpenClinica Enterprise electronic data capture software to facilitate its clinical trials.
OpenClinica is the world’s leading commercial open source clinical trial software, enabling the electronic capture and management of clinical data across diverse research settings worldwide.
Electronic data capture software can be notoriously cumbersome to set up and use, and OpenClinica’s lightweight model adds simplicity and puts more power into the hands of users. “The OpenClinica Enterprise software was quick to set up and easy to make study changes,” said Rose Britton, manager of clinical and professional affairs at CooperVision. “We are wrapping up our first study, and our research sites have reported positive experiences with the system.”
Innovation is rapidly occurring in the contact lens market, with increasing demand for specialized products. CooperVision recently introduced Proclear® 1 Day multifocal lenses, which provide presbyopic patients with excellent vision at all distances and address age-related dryness, all in the convenience of a daily disposable lens.
According to OpenClinica’s CEO, Cal Collins, “We are glad that OpenClinica is able to help CooperVision pursue these important opportunities.”
