Velos to Develop Key System Interface for Clinical Research
Date:3/26/2008

- Will facilitate tight integration between sponsors and investigators -

FREMONT, Calif., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Velos, Inc., a recognized leader and trusted resource for clinical trial management information systems and member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork, will work to develop a key interface between Velos eResearch and Oracle Clinical. Both software products serve to advance clinical research. Velos eResearch is widely installed at research sites, while Oracle Clinical holds a leadership position among research sponsors.

When complete, Oracle Clinical customers should be able to populate Velos eResearch with content, such as research protocols, case reports and data dictionaries, which will then be used by Velos sites for study fulfillment. Velos eResearch customers should then be able to return study information collected through eResearch to Oracle Clinical where it can be integrated and analyzed together with information collected from other sources. This two-way system handshake will help to ensure consistency, greatly reduce redundant data entry and foster other systematic efficiencies that will enable higher quality, more timely clinical research fulfillment for sponsors and investigators alike.

"Oracle Clinical customers have expressed the desire to interoperate with systems used at research sites," said Neil de Crescenzo, Group Vice President, Healthcare and Life Sciences, Oracle. "Velos is a clear leader among clinical trial management systems used at research sites in the U.S., particularly among larger academic medical centers. We welcome their plan to develop an interface between Velos eResearch and Oracle Clinical."

Velos eResearch is deployed by 21 top 25 academic medical centers and research institutions named in the U.S. News & World Report, 2007 Best Hospitals Survey. In the same survey, 14 of the 18 institutions receiving "Honor Roll" status are Velos customers. Approximately 30 percent of all NIH (National Institutes of Health) and 35 percent of all NCI (National Cancer Institute) extramural grants go to Velos customers. 12 of the current 24 CTSA (Clinical and Translational Science Award) winners are also Velos customers.

"Oracle has a huge footprint and leadership position in the life sciences, CRO, and medical device industries," said John McIlwain, President and CEO of Velos, Inc. "We're very pleased to be working to implement a robust system handshake between Velos eResearch and Oracle Clinical. We expect the interface will be a great benefit to many Velos customers and their research sponsors."

Traditional EDC (electronic data capture) requires investigators and their staff to leave behind their in-house systems, login to the sponsor's system, enter trial data, and return again to whatever systems and devices they use on a day-to-day basis. While this is an improvement over paper-based methods for sponsors, clinical research fulfillment in its current automated form is still an incomplete system supply chain as a result of work redundancies at the site that are, in effect, reinforced, by the current system model.

"The current state-of-the-art in EDC can actually increase the workloads for many research sites," explained McIlwain. "This in turn adversely impacts sponsor productivity and contributes to the extended time periods required to conduct clinical trials and obtain related drug/device approvals. We look forward to addressing these intrinsic supply chain barriers."

"From an economic perspective, particularly for sponsors," continued McIlwain, "significant advantages result from improved clinical trial timeliness that an integrated supply chain model creates. These gains in turn translate to better treatment options sooner for patients. The technology is there, we just need to put the system handshakes in place."
