The Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) at the University of Michigan has selected the OpenClinica Enterprise clinical trial software platform to support a growing clinical study portfolio. Starting this fall, MICHR will begin deployment of OpenClinica for a wide variety of clinical trials.
According to Jim Maszatics, Clinical Research Informatics Core (CRIC) Manager at MICHR, OpenClinica offers a robust infrastructure that will enhance MICHR’s competitiveness for extramural funding. “Static budgets and budget cuts from the NIH are causing government-sponsored grants to become more competitive than ever. With OpenClinica, we are able to put in place an enterprise-quality, regulatory compliant electronic data capture and clinical data management system that will make us more attractive to both government-sponsored and industry-sponsored clinical trials.”
In addition to its regulatory compliance capabilities, MICHR cited OpenClinica’s flexibility to support a wide variety of studies off the same platform, thereby increasing the institute’s efficiency. This efficiency will serve MICHR well in its support of a large and growing number of diverse clinical studies.
