REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2014) - Oracle (NYSE: ORCL)

News Summary
Contract research organizations (CROs) are constantly looking to improve clinical trial data quality while reducing costs and accelerating studies for sponsors. They also seek ways to distinguish themselves in an increasingly competitive market. Guangzhou Boji, one of China's leading CROs, selected Oracle Health Sciences e-clinical solutions to help it advance each of these goals. Using the solutions, the CRO is improving clinical study efficiency and productivity and enhancing data accuracy, visibility, and integrity while credentialing itself with world-class e-clinical applications that boost sponsor confidence.

News Facts

  • Guangzhou Boji, one of China's leading CROs, implemented Oracle Health Sciences e-clinical solutions -- including Oracle Clinical, Oracle Remote Data Capture, and Oracle Thesaurus Management System -- to help improve clinical trial data quality, study efficiency, and productivity while reducing costs and accelerating studies for sponsors. Guangzhou Boji selected the Oracle Health Sciences e-clinical solutions in November 2013.
  • Guangzhou Boji, which conducts 40 to 50 key clinical trials a year from Phase I through Phase IV, replaced its legacy proprietary electronic data capture solution with Oracle Clinical and Oracle Remote Data Capture -- helping to eliminate labor-intensive paper-based processes and data silos; accelerate data capture, validation, and submission; minimize manual data entry errors; and reduce paper use.
  • By automating and streamlining clinical trial processes, Guangzhou Boji is speeding data collection and time to database lock while reducing costs, elevating the value that it delivers to trial sponsors.
  • The CRO also plans to implement Oracle's Siebel Clinical Trial Management System to help streamline its internal processes. With a centralized system to manage multiple studies, Guangzhou Boji hopes to lower trial costs and clinical research associate costs and to move toward paperless reporting.
