DALLAS (PRWEB) September 19, 2008
Phoenix Data Systems is one of three finalists in the 2008 Data Driven Innovation Award, for its "Complex and robust data cleaning edit check system (Smart Forms for Smarter Trials)". The award recognizes an outstanding vendor/sponsor relationship that developed a new technology based product or service to innovatively address the sponsor's study needs from a clinical data management perspective. The competition is open to any partnering organizations in the clinical data management industry, of any size, operating anywhere in the world. Winners will be announced during the Data Driven Innovation Award Reception on Monday, September 22, being held at Texas Stadium.
"At a cost of more than $800 million dollars to develop a new drug, new approaches are needed to drive down costs for today's pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as for consumers," said Stephen Boccardo, VP of Sales for Phoenix Data Systems. "Phoenix Data Systems represents the best value in EDC for today's clinical studies, helping to improve efficiency in drug development, save valuable staff time and increase bottom line results."
