PharmaPros Announces New Electronic Data Lifecycle Management (eDLM™) Solution for Clinical Trials

Comprehensive Approach for Management of Clinical Information

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - October 22, 2007) - PharmaPros, a Clinical Information Management organization that engages with Life Science companies to create, integrate and manage their clinical information, today announces its newest services offering, Electronic Data Lifecycle Management (eDLM™), for the management of electronic clinical information.

Emerging technologies such as Electronic Data Capture, Interactive Voice Response Systems, and other In-Stream data acquisition tools have led to a proliferation of clinical data for a study, which is stored in multiple and disparate data repositories, as well as managed by multiple vendors.

"What we're seeing in the industry is a challenge in determining the completeness and accuracy of the data from these disparate sources, as there is a potential for conflicting information between the systems. This can make the overall study progress extremely difficult to gauge," says Peg Regan, CEO of PharmaPros.

eDLM is a data-driven workflow solution that includes a data lifecycle management team to support the client in effectively orchestrating the overall study across multiple acquisition systems.

"We have been helping clients manage the workflow of their trials for more than 10 years. Now, with eDLM we are able to assist clients using any type of data acquisition to manage their study data. Through our proprietary data integration, workflow, tracking and reporting tools, we are able to quickly incorporate any study into eDLM and provide our clients with the ability to evaluate the status of their study and manage it effectively through database lock without impacting their current technology environment at all," Regan added.

PharmaPros is providing a solution for companies challenged with data integration issues that stem from a variety of reasons. As the evolution of technology moves toward more sophisticated integration, PharmaPros' scaleable eDLM will evolve as well -- incorporating new tools and technologies, processes, policies and best practices.

Marc Viscogliosi, CEO of Paradigm Spine, a medical device company and PharmaPros client, says, "What's unique about eDLM, and about PharmaPros, is the content and context expertise they bring to the table. They are experts in clinical trial workflow, who also happen to be extremely savvy in clinical technology. This has really been the defining characteristic of what has made eDLM a unique and successful solution for our company."
