Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Clinovo will exhibit and present its latest eClinical innovations at booth #20 at the 2013 Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Southern California Conference, taking place on September 24-25 in La Jolla, CA. Clinovo will demonstrate the new advanced features of ClinCapture® 1.0.3, the latest version of its open source Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system. The Outsourcing in Clinical Trial conferences, organized by Arena globally, aim to formulate a proactive approach to perfecting Sponsor-Vendor relationships.
This year's conference features talks on open source for Clinical Trials. Marc Desgrousilliers, CTO at Clinovo, states that “Clinovo is extremely pleased to see a presentation on the benefits of open source technology for clinical trials in the conference programme. Open source technology is becoming pervasive in the high-tech industry and has long since caught up with proprietary systems, offering much of the functionality at a fraction of the cost.”
Clinovo is the CRO behind ClinCapture, the fast growing open source Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system. Clinovo will release an exclusive preview of ClinCapture's 1.0.3 release at the conference, showcasing new advanced features such as Calendared Events, Dynamic Groups and Randomization. ClinCapture becomes the first open source Electronic Data Capture (EDC) with a integrated randomization capability. Clinovo is repeatedly chosen for its capacity to quickly adapt ClinCapture to its clients' needs, among with its ten years experience in clinical trials.
ClinCapture has been distributed for three years for phase I, II and IV studies with up to 20,000 patients, and sponsor companies have secured FDA approval using ClinCapture as their preferred Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system. Leveraging open source technology’s cost efficiencies, one customer saved up to 73% by switching from a proprietary system to ClinCapture.
Clinovo will also present CDISC® Express 1.1, the newest version of its open source SAS®-based clinical data management system that automatically converts clinical data into CDISC SDTM using an Excel framework. CDISC Express has been downloaded over 900 times since its launch in 2011, by leading sponsor companies as well as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the CDISC organization (cdisc.org). This 1.1 release follows the latest SDTM specifications, additional validation checks to the system, and new domains, including seven domains for medical device companies following the SDTM guide for medical devices.
Silicon Valley based Clinovo, which recently celebrated its 10th year anniversary, has strong relationships as a local service provider in California, with many of its medical device and pharmaceutical clients based in Southern California and the San Diego area. “Southern California is a dominant hub in our space”, says Sophie McCallum, Director of Operations who will be present at the conference. "We are excited to be exhibiting at a conference with key thought leaders speaking and presenting in a such dynamic geographic area for the life sciences industry”.
