Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2012
Clinovo proves its advanced expertise in open source clinical EDC development by presenting two papers at the annual OpenClinica Global Conference April 22-23, 2012 in Boston, MA.
Ale Gicqueau, President & CEO at Clinovo, will animate a Demo Station “How to easily create CDISC SDTM datasets from OpenClinica using Open Source technology”. This workshop explains the different steps to convert clinical data from OpenClinica to CDISC SDTM in a practical customer situation. It uses CDISC Express, Clinovo’s open-source CDISC mapping software, downloadable for free on clinovo.com/cdisc.
Hendra Tatangsurja, Clinovo’s EDC Specialist, will present Clinovo's second paper selected titled “Convert OpenClinica data to SAS datasets in a single macro call”. It demonstrates Clinovo’s enhancements to the leading open-source Electronic Data Capture (EDC) platform to seamlessly export any clinical data from OpenClinica to easy-to-read SAS datasets.
“At Clinovo, we believe that sharing technology can bring medical innovations faster to patients. As such, we have been early adopters and strong proponents of open source technology”, says Ale Gicqueau. “Clinovo currently offers two intuitive open source systems to the pharmaceutical industry: ClinCapture, a fully validated open-source Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system, and CDISC Express, the only open source SAS®-based system that automatically converts clinical data into CDISC SDTM.”
To help sponsors conduct faster, cost-effective clinical trials, Clinovo enhanced and validated the code of the OpenClinica platform and developed ClinCapture. Fully customizable to any study protocol, ClinCapture is an open source EDC system that provides sponsors with sophisticated eCRF design, full 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and many security improvements.
Electronic Data Capture (EDC) is Clinovo's core competencies along with CDISC mapping, Clinical Data Management and SAS-Programming. Clinovo counts an experienced team of programmers with high proficiency in all major EDC systems. Clinovo's EDC experts are able to efficiently translate study protocols into the right EDC study design as well as implement and customize roles, workflow, and electronic CRF features for any given study.
