Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, has agreed to acquire Octagon Research Solutions, a Wayne, Penn.-based provider of clinical and regulatory information management solutions and software for the pharmaceutical industry. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
During the DIA 2008 Annual Meeting held in Boston, Phase Forward announced it formed an alliance with AG Mednet to streamline the process of transporting medical imaging, such as MRIs, CAT scans and ultrasounds. The alliance calls for the combining of InForm, Phase Forward’s trial management system, and AG Mednet’s imaging transport network for better tracking and management of patient images in real time from sites to imaging experts. “Clinical trial sponsors need a way to transport patient images more quickly and efficiently for less cost, and a real-time capability to track and manage these images,” said Martin Young Phase Forward’s vice president of corporate development and marketing.
