OmniComm Systems, Inc., (OTCQX: OMCM), a leading global provider of clinical data management technology, has a new technology partner in Japan. SRD Co., Ltd., a contract research organization (CRO) in Tokyo, has selected OmniComm’s TrialMaster electronic data capture (EDC) technology to support clinical trial research for pharmaceutical, medical devices and related healthcare products. The agreement represents the first contract for TrialMaster in Japan.
“SRD selected TrialMaster EDC because it offers efficient and easy support, and provides site users with easy-to-use data entry screens that support high-quality data capture and avoid unnecessary system-generated queries,” said Akira Sugihara, general manager of SRD’s data science department. “In addition, OmniComm provides excellent support – in the local language – for our study-build activities, operational challenges and our business development activities.”
TrialMaster was selected for its speed of study build, flexibility and multilingual capabilities, but most of all, for its unique ability to both transpose data and export data in SDTM format directly from the EDC solution. Compelling TrialMaster features include: intuitive user interface, real-time edit checks, real-time reporting and the ability to customize data exports. OmniComm’s technology transition deployment model, which allows customers to build their studies while OmniComm manages the hosting in its state-of-the-art data centers, was another critical factor in the selection process.
“We started preparing to bring TrialMaster to the Japanese market in 2016. In Japan, more so than any other country, it requires not only a superior product, but above all, endurance and focus to bring a new technology to the market and secure your first customers,” said Wolf Ondracek, senior vice president at OmniComm, with responsibility for the Asia-Pacific region. “The fact that SRD, a local Japanese CRO, has chosen TrialMaster as its EDC system for industry-sponsored trials is a tremendously important milestone. I am confident that it marks the start of the successful penetration of the Japanese market for our flagship EDC solution, TrialMaster.”
Specific emphasis for TrialMaster’s selection included:
- Ability to build studies more efficiently and effectively.
- Adeptness in query management work flow.
- Intuitive interface for all key user groups.
- Dynamic monitoring and centralized source review.
- Ability to export SDTM datasets directly from TrialMaster using Custom Export Utility Tool™.
- Broad range of pre-built, real-time standard reports and best-in-class, real-time ad-hoc reporting.
- Flexible and very user-friendly eLearning modules.
- Professional and experienced regional-based services and support organization.
