OmniComm Systems, Inc. and City of Hope Collaboration to Benefit Entire Cancer Research Community

EDC Company to Collaborate With Leading Cancer Center to Build Standards-Based eCRFs and Make Available Outcome of Collaboration to Other Users

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - December 4, 2007) - OmniComm Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: OMCM), a leader in integrated electronic data capture (EDC) solutions for clinical trials, today announced that City of Hope (a recent license customer of the TrialMaster® product suite) and OmniComm are working together to develop a set of caDSR derived standardized case report forms and reporting tools to support National Cancer Institute (NCI) reporting requirements. These reusable forms and tools will be made freely available to other Cancer Centers by OmniComm and City of Hope following a formal process of user acceptance testing led by City of Hope staff. City of Hope intends to use these standardized forms and NCI reporting tools for the first trial that they put into production using their TrialMaster environment.

"OmniComm is employing our extensive experience in building eCRFs to build a library of eCRFs based on standards extracted from the caDSR and have already completed the initial build of all the forms used to meet the reporting requirements for many NCI funded trials," said Stephen Johnson, Executive Vice President of Business Development, Professional Services and Client Services and Support at OmniComm. "We are confident that working with City of Hope to validate the results and optimize the resulting eCRFs will produce a high quality reusable tool that many of our clients will benefit from."

"We plan to use this library as the foundation for data collection in our early-phase oncology trials," said Jeffrey Longmate, Ph.D., Director of Biostatistics at City of Hope. "Having a broad collection of standard data elements already mapped to meet our typical research needs and major reporting requirements will help us rapidly launch new protocol-specific eCRFs implemented with TrialMaster. We hope that the savings in time and effort will broaden the feasibility of electronic data capture in the Cancer Center environment."

The plan to make this library of standards-based eCRFs and associated reporting tools available to other Cancer Centers is consistent with other City of Hope informatics contributions to the community including its on-going caBIG related activities. Similarly, making these tools available to users of TrialMaster is consistent with OmniComm's commitment to ensuring the availability of high quality and reusable tools for its customers. The pledge to make this resource freely available to future adopters of TrialMaster will further reduce the time required to bring NCI funded trials live.
