Innovative native apps for mobile devices greatly streamline clinical trials
Washington, D.C. – September 22, 2015—TrialKit, a clinical trial management and electronic data capture system developed by Crucial Data Solutions (CDS), has won the annual Society for Clinical Data Management (SCDM) NextGen Technology Innovation (TIA) Award, presented as part of SCDM’s 2015 annual conference in Washington, D.C. The SCDM Award recognizes breakthrough innovations which use advanced technologies or processes and provide real-life application for use in clinical research. CDS is dedicated to empowering clinical professionals with sophisticated yet affordable and accessible EDC functionality.
CDS has developed mobile apps for both the iOS and Android platforms that can be used to collect data and conduct entire clinical research studies with mobile phones and tablets. TrialKit allows novice users to create complex case report forms that are accessible from 98% of the smart phones and tablets in the world via the TrialKit app downloaded from either the App Store or Google Play. By utilizing this ultra-modern technology, clinical professionals can conduct far more efficient studies resulting in significant cost savings and greatly reduced study duration.
Paul Grady, CEO of Crucial Data Solutions, commented about winning the SCDM TIA Award: “The potential reduction in clinical research costs can be as high as 80%, while getting your product to market in half the time. Companies who adopt this technology will not only be more competitive, but also provide society a great service, as healthcare will become more available to those who need it most. We all have the right to be healthy and this type of technology gets us closer to the goal of providing healthcare for all. This technology is the future. The only question for companies is: Do you want to integrate this technology proactively or wait for your competition and then implement it reactively?”
“TrialKit is the only product that is conducting 100% paperless studies. These studies capture all data at its source, eliminating a very time consuming and extremely expensive process known as source data verification (SDV). In addition, when anomalies show up in the data, the system delivers communications via push notification technology to data managers and other clinical professionals. This is the future of clinical research and it is available today.”
