January 10, 2012

Company News Release

Nextrials, Inc. will again participate in the annual IHE North America Connectathon sponsored by IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise), to be held January 9-14 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. This is the fourth consecutive year for Nextrials’ participation in the event, where it will showcase the flexibility of Prism®, its clinical trial management platform; Prism is one of the clinical research industry’s few electronic data capture (EDC) platforms fully integrated with platforms used for electronic health records (EHR) by the healthcare industry. During the Connectathon demonstration on Saturday, January 14, Prism will facilitate live data streaming between multiple EHR vendors and data recipients.

Nextrials is one of just two EDC solution providers participating in the Connectathon, the healthcare IT industry’s only large-scale interoperability testing event dedicated to establishing standards that address specific clinical needs in support of optimal patient care. The event is an important qualifier for the HIMSS12 Interoperability Showcase™, being held at the Venetian-Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas February 20-24, 2012.

Nextrials’ Prism melds clinical trial management functionality with EDC in a single, integrated package. By receiving a constant flow of data, Prism enables sponsors and sites to fully utilize real-time integration of disparate information and data sources, such as a hospital’s EHR or patient records, to better provide a continuum of care for patients enrolled in clinical trials.
