SAN FRANCISCO, July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DecisionView Inc., a leading provider of software solutions to optimize clinical trial enrollment for life sciences companies, today announced the release of StudyOptimizer 4.3, the latest version of the company's flagship solution for patient enrollment planning, tracking and forecasting.
By providing greater visibility into site performance and cost projections, StudyOptimizer 4.3 significantly improves the ability of global pharmaceutical customers to optimize enrollment plans and deliver clinical trials on time and on budget. And with added support for clustered deployments, enterprise customers get improved performance and reliability, particularly for larger global implementations.
"Drug manufacturers are under increasing market pressure to improve enterprise agility, develop drugs faster, and lower costs," said Alan Louie, Research Director at IDC Health Insights. "The key to enabling effective clinical development transformation is improved operational excellence, in large part driven by better access to and exploitation of organizational data at all levels of the organization. DecisionView is one of the technology vendors delivering on this promise by providing real-time access to clinical enrollment performance data and supporting actionable analytics to reduce risk and increase speed in strategic decision making at all levels of the organization."
StudyOptimizer 4.3 delivers the following compelling new capabilities:
Trial Cost Visibility
The Enrollment & Treatment Cost Analysis capabilities automatically calculate planned, current and projected costs based on assumptions entered for each country participating in a trial. This analysis is presented visually, showing these cost elements over time at specific milestone points (such as Last Patient Screened and Last Patient Randomized), and broken down across regions and countries. Intuitive cost visualization adds significant value by enabling users to quickly assess costs at a glance, which is particularly useful for trials where an over-enrollment strategy is employed.
Site Performance Insights
The StudyOptimizer 4.3 'Sites View' feature has been enhanced to include additional insights on the most recent screening and randomization activity for each site, so trial managers can quickly assess which sites are encountering enrollment problems.
Enhanced scalability and performance
With the StudyOptimizer 4.3 release, customers can now run the application distributed across multiple "cluster nodes" simultaneously, providing improved performance and reliability, particularly for larger implementations.
Global Visibility Into Trial Performance
In StudyOptimizer 4.3, customers have portal-based access to two key charts:
"StudyOptimizer has quickly become a trusted 'source of truth' for our customers because it provides up-to-date information about where trial enrollment is, where it's supposed to be, and where it will end up – all in one place," said Linda Drumright, President and Chief Executive Officer at DecisionView. "StudyOptimizer 4.3 deepens that source of truth by providing visibility into additional key areas. Now users can evaluate performance on a cost basis as well as time, diagnose site performance more granularly, and share StudyOptimizer information across the enterprise more readily through their enterprise portal strategies."
