Global ePRO Market Leader PHT Partners With Almac, Medidata to Create Unique Data Integration Trail on DIA Exhibit Floor to Demonstrate Benefits of Clinical Trial Data Integration; PHT Europe GM Valdo Arnera MD to Present Session on Adopting Electronic Diaries

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2009) - PHT Corporation (DIA Booth number 1124) continues its drive to advance the use of electronic diaries for clinical trials at the DIA 45th Annual Meeting, June 21-25 in San Diego. PHT is the leading provider of ePRO solutions used in more than 400 clinical trials worldwide.

PHT DIA Events:

1) Demonstrating sponsor savings with ePRO

PHT will demonstrate how its market-leading ePRO products, including the SitePad Tablet, allow sponsors to conduct smaller, faster, safer clinical trials. ePRO's many scientific and business benefits include enabling sponsors to reduce the size of a clinical study by significantly reducing data variance. ePRO frees investigator sites from wasting weeks or months of budget cycles reviewing incomplete, inaccurate paper-based data.

2) Partnership with industry leaders to demonstrate the benefits of clinical trial data integration

PHT, Almac and Medidata Solutions are co-hosting "Follow the Integrated Data Trail," a booth tour to showcase rapid data sharing across three best-in-class systems using industry standards. Participants will be able to track a patient from randomization in Almac's IXRS™ integrated Interactive Voice and Web Response System to electronic patient diary entries in the PHT LogPad system, ending with CRF data entries in Medidata Rave®, where participants can view all previously entered data now available in one system. To witness first hand the benefits of integrated IVR/IWR, ePRO and EDC data please visit booths 1301, 1124-1125 and 701.
