ERT, a global solutions provider for patient safety and efficacy endpoint data collection headquartered in Philadelphia, Pa., has launched Insights Cloud, a suite of data analytics, visualization and workflow applications that leverage real-time clinical trials data to provide clinical trial sponsors and CROs with actionable insights and process optimization.
EXPERT Central—ERT's proprietary research and integration platform—includes an eClinical data hub for integrating and harmonizing clinical trials data from any clinical system. The integration framework includes standard adapters to leading electronic data capture (EDC) solutions such as Medidata Rave and Oracle InForm and facilitates the real-time exchange of clinical trials data.
“As the clinical research industry continues to struggle with the proliferation of data silos, ERT has been evaluating how best to help our customers overcome the challenges of data fragmentation,” said Jim Corrigan, president and CEO of ERT. “Since our acquisition of eClinical Insights in 2014, we have been incorporating their innovative integration technology to support this mission, and are excited to release this first-in-class platform that provides our customers with capabilities for accessing, sharing and integrating their clinical trials data."
By extending the ERT EXPERT platform with eClinical Insight’s integration technology, trial sponsors and CROs will benefit from the rapid deployment of the ERT EXPERT Central data integration layer that enables real-time data exchange between systems. The end result is insight into site and outcomes data activity across all spectrums of clinical and operational data. The ERT Insights Cloud now offers site selection, true risk-based management, enhanced performance measurement and informed real-time decision-making.
“This is the first of many initiatives at ERT to help our customers leverage our solutions to enable data-driven trial management strategies,” said Amy Furlong, executive vice president, cardiac safety and insights solutions at ERT. “With the global and diverse nature of clinical trials, the ERT Insights Cloud is the only solution that crosses the boundaries of disparate technology and disconnected teams by centralizing data, harmonizing workflow and delivering a fully integrated business intelligence solution.”
