Clients and investigator sites benefit from improved processes and better data access

WILMINGTON, N.C.  (February 10, 2016) – Pharmaceutical Product Development, LLC (PPD) is expanding Preclarus®, its award-winning clinical data platform, to include a comprehensive set of data solutions that supports the company’s central lab operations. These changes will enable study sites to access clean central lab data in real time, improve inventory management and order tracking, facilitate patient management and safety, and establish complete chain of custody for samples. The goal of these enhancements is to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of managing central lab data for PPD’s clients.

With the expansion of the Preclarus brand, PPD® Laboratories is introducing the new Preclarus investigator site portal to support clinical trial sites. This portal is a key enhancement for PPD Laboratories’ clients because it builds upon the company’s current capabilities to provide sites with new tools and options to access clinical trial data and help better manage their patients. The company’s newly named Preclarus central lab database will continue to support the company’s central lab operations and project teams with real-time, studywide lab results, project status and site metrics.

“Preclarus offers our clients an unprecedented view of central laboratory data that support their clinical trials,” explains David Johnston, Ph.D., executive vice president of PPD Laboratories. “With its real-time access to study details, patient data and laboratory results, Preclarus drives informed decision-making and increased efficiency for PPD Laboratories and its clients.”

Preclarus is PPD’s comprehensive data solution that consolidates and standardizes data from multiple sources to give PPD teams and clients transparent, real-time access to clinical trial operations and patient data, which can be visualized on interactive dashboards. Coupled with sophisticated analytics that enable innovative research approaches, Preclarus provides the transparent reporting and analytic capabilities needed to turn data into actionable intelligence.

The new central lab portal is designed to make it easier for investigational sites to support PPD clinical trials. The reports and tools within the Preclarus investigator site portal simplify every process, including adding patients to the trial, ordering sample collection kits, reviewing laboratory results, managing patients and critical values, and accessioning and shipping samples to PPD. The new portal also provides on-site biorepository tools to help clients manage samples at their site and track them to their final destinations.
