Centre for Human Drug Research Selects OmniComm® Promasys® Mobile Technology

Mobile Technology Extends Electronic Data Capture to the Point-of-Clinical Testing

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 19, 2014) - OmniComm Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: OMCM) signed a five year agreement with Centre for Human Drug Research (CHDR), a clinical research center in The Netherlands, for Promasys mobile electronic data capture (EDC) technology. This agreement gives CHDR the ability to capture data right at the point-of-clinical testing utilizing the latest in mobile technology.

  • CHDR uses Promasys technology to conduct more than thirty Phase I and IIa clinical studies per year across a full range of early stage clinical pharmacology research and sponsor based clinical studies.

  • The Promasys iPad app meets the day-to-day demands of clinical research centers providing study staff the flexibility and freedom to enter clinical data at the point-of-clinical testing without sacrificing data quality or functionality.

  • Promasys widespread adoption and utilization at CHDR is based on the application's ability to rapidly and efficiently impact study build and setup. Promasys' rapid clinical acceptance with research staff is in large part due to the intuitive user interface, high data quality, point and click features and elimination of programming. 

  • Promasys-generated clinical data has been used by CHDR researchers to publish over 450 peer reviewed scientific papers.

  • OmniComm Systems acquired Promasys BV in November 2013 adding a market-leading EDC system for Investigator Initiated Studies to its product portfolio.

  • Promasys is used by more than 35 research organizations, academic medical centers and hospitals, predominately in Asia and Europe, and in the USA. 

  • Promasys was developed in partnership with clinical research investigators and research staff to the meet the unique EDC demands required by Investigator Initiated Studies and academic researchers.

"We are very pleased to continue our longstanding relationship with the OmniComm Promasys product," says Adam Cohen, M.D., Ph.D., professor of clinical pharmacology and CEO, CHDR. "CHDR performs perhaps the most complicated pharmacokinetic-dynamic studies in the field and our studies produce a data flow that would be unmanageable without this system. The change to the iPad product leads to immediate and considerable savings in staff costs that easily outweighs the acquisition cost. The smooth workflow from design of the database to the final publication is another feature we could not do without."

For the first time, innovative mobile technology by Promasys delivers an EDC solution that enables research staff the flexibility to capture vital clinical information at the point-of-testing. 

"Most commercially available EDC solutions are not designed to support the needs of investigators for investigator initiated trials and academic clinical research centers," said Stephen Johnson, president, OmniComm Systems. "The Promasys technology is the first commercially viable solution designed with the needs of the academic research environment in mind -- built by investigators for investigators."
