Software digitizes the entire clinical trial source and lifecycle management process
Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA) recently announced the integration of DrugLogic Qscan with its Adverse Event Reporting System (AERS) tool. The combined solutions offer a risk management architecture that leverages advanced analytics to help companies streamline compliance with pharmacovigilance requirements.
As a result of this integration, AERS pharmacovigilance users can visualize their case data in Qscan right away and focus on the case of most interest. Drug safety teams can also set minimums for automatically detecting safety signals and receiving alerts when thresholds are reached or exceeded.
Oracle Adverse Event Reporting System
Oracle AERS features a query-by-example module that allows users to mine data with multiple case data elements. They can perform queries using advanced dictionary relationships, or return data based on Standardized MeDRA Queries. And with the new Qscan component, users can immediately investigate adverse event data against public data sources.

Newest version automatically migrates data between CRFs when mid-study changes occur
Phoenix Data Systems (PDS; Philadelphia, PA) announced the release of Express 4 in June. The software is an update to PDS's EDC application designed to help life science companies capture, clean, and manage data throughout all clinical trial phases.
Express 4 uses the .Net framework to enable interaction between internal and remote systems. This results in streamlined deployment, enhanced interoperability with diverse systems, and improved update capability. A useful feature of Express 4 is seamless CRF version management, which lets existing subject data from one CRF version migrate to another in the event of mid-study changes.
