Proprietary ClinQuick(R) system builds on a 15-year track record of
technical leadership in early clinical research
KING OF PRUSSIA, PA, July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - MDS Pharma Services, a leading provider of innovative drug discovery and development solutions, has launched the next generation of its proprietary ClinQuick(R) electronic system for Phase I study set-up, data capture, project tracking and personnel credential management. Aimed at improving client service, the new version of the ClinQuick(R) system extends a 15-year legacy of technical leadership in early clinical research. System enhancements include a more user-friendly interface, improved menu navigation and a more robust data platform. This new platform will enable faster and more flexible reporting and will ultimately allow clients to access their data via the internet.
"Since its implementation in 1993, ClinQuick(R) has been used successfully in more than 3,000 Phase I studies involving nearly 100,000 participants," said MDS Pharma Services President David Spaight. "Our investment to enhance the ClinQuick(R) system builds on that legacy of success and will allow us to meet growing client demand for early clinical research services while maintaining our leadership position in Phase I. This next-generation ClinQuick(R) system will further improve our ability to deliver high quality Phase I services on time."
Designed and built by MDS Pharma Services for use in its Phase I clinical research centers, the fully integrated ClinQuick(R) system facilitates rapid data cleansing and client monitoring for seamless operation of both single and multi-site studies. ClinQuick(R) accelerates timelines, enables accurate direct data acquisition, and reduces costs by a third compared to traditional paper case report forms (CRFs) - the forms used by clients to collect and document data from each participating clinical research site. The system is fully CFR Part 11 compliant and can be used for study management and electronic data capture (EDC), either alone or in conjunction with a client-provided EDC system or paper CRFs. MDS Pharma Services offers one of the world's largest capacities for conducting early-phase clinical studies, with some 1,100 beds in five state-of-the-art clinical research facilities in North America and Europe.
