Nextrials Gets CDISC Approval
Wednesday, March 24, 2010
Nextrials, a clinical research software and services company, has been approved by the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) as one of 15 registered solutions providers. It is the only company offering an electronic data capture (EDC) product supporting the CDISC Healthcare Link Initiative.
Launched in 2005, the CDISC Healthcare Link Initiative focuses on the interoperability of electronic health records (EHR) platforms with EDC technology for clinical trials.
“There are benefits to using an integrated EDC/EHR platform in the healthcare industry, and Nextrials should be applauded for its efforts in this arena,” stated Rebecca Kush, CDISC president and CEO. “By using a standards-based process, workflow for clinical research can be integrated into the workflow for clinical care. This streamlines the process for sharing clinical care information for multiple uses including research and public health. It promotes a reduction in time for data entry and increased data accuracy by eliminating transcription.”
