New features reduce trial delivery time and ensure faster access to client
CLEVELAND, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DATATRAK International,
Inc. (Nasdaq: DATA), a technology and services company focused on global
eClinical solutions for the clinical trials industry, today reported it is
increasing options, flexibility and efficiency for end-users with the
DATATRAK eClinical(TM) 2008 Q1 Release.
Some of the new interactive features and modules include:
-- Trial Manager
New trial management workflows empower virtual teams to setup, design,
test, approve and deploy clinical trials through a web browser.
Building the foundation for a better CTMS, new enterprise consoles now
track performance metrics across a sponsor's drug programs.
Trial design goes to the next level with a new Zero Footprint, drag-
and-drop interface -- ensuring faster and more efficient trial design.
Accessible from Trial Manager, the new VisualArchitect(TM) allows trial
designers to quickly manipulate the layout and features of a clinical
trial with access to robust libraries of forms and client-specific
-- Manager Performance Enhancements
DATATRAK eClinical is more efficient than ever in displaying data,
giving managers an improved interface with increased functionality for
sorting, filtering and exporting data. This translates into performance
enhancements and even faster turn-around times for day-to-day tasks.
New online training for end-users is now available with eTrain for Data
Collection and Investigator Review and eSignature. Users can access
through a new Learning Management System (LMS). A "My Training" link on
the study homepage takes the user directly into the LMS to begin self-
paced, web-based training.
-- Help Center
Online Help is just a click away. User-driven access to product
manuals, release notes, Frequently Asked Questions, demonstrations and
other eClinical information is available 24x7 -- world-wide.
-- Lab Import Improvements
DATATRAK's enhanced system increases the efficiency of uploading lab
imports, processes the data, provides a detailed report and stores all
logs and discrepancies -- behind the scenes -- freeing up time to
manage other tasks.
-- Reporting and Export Enhancements
Create "Report Packages" or custom exports by combining multiple
reports in one output file or zip file. Add more detail to the
standard exports, too, with the path and visit for each data set. For
Queries, Alerts, Comments, and Audit Trails we've added visit, path,
parent form, and question title.
-- Audit Trail Enhancements
The audits trail is more comprehensive than ever, now displaying
information like SDV, Lock, and PI Signature status, saving time when
researching user activities.
"We are very pleased to offer these new enhancements in our eClinical software," said Jim Bob Ward, Executive Vice President, Research and Development, DATATRAK International. "This is a compliment to the Product Advisory Council; their contribution has ensured these new features and functionality provide a wide range of efficiencies and cost-savings for anyone within the clinical trial spectrum."
"This global market is definitely moving towards an eClinical set of offerings for clinical trials," stated Dr. Jeffrey A. Green, President and Chief Executive Officer of DATATRAK International, Inc. "Most providers attempt to piece together such a complete set of capabilities by integrating multiple unrelated products in order to satisfy increasing client demands. The DATATRAK eClinical Platform houses all of these capabilities under one unified database and user interface, eliminating the significant validation and logistical challenges of integration efforts from multiple providers."
