As the volume of clinical trial data continues to grow, consistent coding and normalizing of data across multiple trials is imperative in advancing the effectiveness and efficiency of clinical trials. To this end, Oracle has announced the availability of Oracle Health Sciences Central Coding Release 3.0.
The new clinical trial data coding and dictionary management application includes expanded query management and automated workflows that help clinical trial sponsors and CROs improve the efficiency and consistency of the coding process.
The new release also features enhanced integration with Oracle Health Sciences InForm Global Trial Management Global Trial Management system, and a flexible, multilingual application that automates coding and minimizes the manual effort required to code verbatim terms. It is the first coding solution to be certified by the Uppsala Monitoring Centre, the World Health Organization collaborative center for international drug monitoring.
Oracle Health Sciences, based in Redwood Shores, Calif., collaborated with multiple users in the clinical trial community on this latest release, soliciting feedback from users to deliver a more comprehensive and widely-tested product.
“Consistent coding is fundamental to normalizing data for analysis and regulatory submission, but it’s no easy task in today’s complex, global research environment,” said Neil de Crescenzo, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Health Sciences. “Integration is critical to achieving the necessary workflows to efficiently code across multiple trials in multiple languages.”
