NEWTOWN, Pa., Apr 17, 2012 - BioClinica(R), Inc., a global provider of clinical trial management solutions, today announced its partnership with Paragon Solutions, an advisory consulting and systems integration firm that specializes in enterprise information management. BioClinica customers will utilize Paragon's resources and expertise to support large-scale integration of BioClinica's eClinical solutions across a variety of technology partnerships and client implementations.
The Paragon partnership will play a key role in BioClinica's plans to enhance operational data management by uniting its OnPoint CTMS with NextDocs' eTMF document management through a SharePoint-based Clinical Reference Architecture. By leveraging the benefits of SharePoint technology, this solution simplifies the consolidation and integration of operational data from and between CTMS, EDC, IVRS, eTMF and Clinical Portals to offer a cost-effective, unified study management environment.
BioClinica OnPoint CTMS helps clinical trial sponsors and CROs to efficiently access, share, and analyze operational data by leveraging the power and ease of use of Microsoft SharePoint. NextDocs' eTMF provides customers with a comprehensive document repository that simplifies the management of essential trial documentation and is compliant with the established Drug Information Association (DIA) reference model. Paragon will provide the clinical data architecture to bridge the gap between systems to create operational efficiencies such as the elimination of redundant data entry.
"The best clinical trial solutions come from companies who specialize," said Peter Benton, BioClinica's President of eClinical Solutions. "The BioClinica/Paragon clinical data integration platform enables trial sponsors to pair cutting-edge eClinical solutions with specialized, regulatory-compliant document management services to create a clinical trial solution that unifies the top technologies in the industry."
"Paragon's subject matter knowledge of clinical trial processes and data requirements, coupled with leading technology provider BioClinica's product capabilities, establishes a platform that provides a robust clinical architecture for our clients," said Ravi Shankar, senior vice president, life sciences and healthcare for Paragon.
Both BioClinica and Paragon are Microsoft Certified Partners. BioClinica is known for its industry-leading integration with Microsoft technology, harnessing the power of SharePoint and the Microsoft Office Suite to provide study project managers a comprehensive, real-time view into trial performance.
