BOSTON, April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perceptive Informatics, the technology subsidiary of PAREXEL International Corporation (Nasdaq: PRXL), today announced the availability of its clinical site management and monitoring software, IMPACT(R) MySites, on a portable USB drive. Clinical monitors can now securely upload site visit information onto the USB drive, without carrying their laptop computers with them. The MySites monitoring solution is a part of the IMPACT suite, Perceptive Informatics' market-leading Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS).
"We expect that clinical monitors will benefit from increased flexibility, productivity, and efficiency with the option to easily and securely capture site visit information from anywhere in the world at any time, using the new portable functionality of the IMPACT MySites USB drive," said Todd Joron, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Perceptive Informatics at PAREXEL. "This capability represents an important step toward a truly mobile eClinical environment."
The IMPACT MySites module supports on-line and off-line monitoring activities and the collection of associated data during site visits by clinical monitors in the field. With the USB drive capability, IMPACT MySites is a zero-footprint solution, requiring no software installation. As the entire MySites module is housed on the USB drive, information collected by clinical monitors is securely stored and later synchronized with the IMPACT database.
The Perceptive Informatics IMPACT system has more than 26,000 users in over 85 countries -- the largest number of users of any CTMS solution on the market. Biopharmaceutical companies rely on the IMPACT solution, which enables complete trial management and planning, to manage, track, and organize clinical trial management data. Perceptive's IMPACT software interfaces with Interactive Voice and Web Response Systems (IVRS/IWRS) as well as electronic data capture (EDC) and data management applications, in addition to financial reporting.
