CDISC Selects Nextrials as a Registered Solutions Provider

March 17, 2010

Company News Release

Nextrials, Inc. has been approved by the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) as one of 15 registered solutions providers, and is the only company offering an electronic data capture (EDC) product supporting the CDISC Healthcare Link Initiative.  Begun in 2005, the CDISC Healthcare Link Initiative focuses on the interoperability of electronic health records (EHR) platforms with EDC technology for clinical trials.

Nextrials’ Prism™, an EDC and clinical trial management platform, supports CDISC standards.  The platform also has been used in a multi-site study where live patient data was collected and shared by what had previously been two disparate data management platforms.

“By using a standards-based process, workflow for clinical research can be integrated into the workflow for clinical care.  This streamlines the process for sharing clinical care information for multiple uses including research and public health. It promotes a reduction in time for data entry and increased data accuracy by eliminating transcription," commented Rebecca Kush, CDISC president and CEO.
