PHT Corporation Celebrates Earth Day With Achievements Including Conserving 48 Million Pages of Paper Worldwide

Global ePRO Leader Sustains Corporate Green Policies by Actively Supporting ISO and Local Recycling Practices, and Partnering With Environmentally Certified Companies

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) - PHT Corporation, the leading international provider of ePRO solutions used in more than 390 clinical trials worldwide, celebrates Earth Day with an ongoing commitment to environmentally sound business practices from every employee at its Boston, Mass. and Geneva, Switzerland headquarters.

PHT's groundbreaking ePRO solutions enable the world's leading biopharmaceutical and medical device companies to conduct safer and more efficient clinical trials.

PHT's corporate environmental management systems help clients substantially reduce their carbon footprints by conducting multi-language, multi-country clinical trials on eDiaries instead of paper diaries which not only are inaccurate, but also are wasteful.

PHT President and CEO Phil Lee explained, "Our clients need to find ways to bring much needed new therapies to market faster, safer, and at a lower cost. PHT's ePRO solutions meet their needs in all areas -- clinically, operationally and environmentally." Mr. Lee added that PHT has instituted a per use model for the company's LogPad and SitePad devices instead of purchasing them, which significantly reduces both PHT's and clients' carbon footprints.

By using PHT's eDiary solutions, biopharmaceutical and life sciences organizations have saved over 48 million pages of paper over the past 15 years. This remarkable achievement is only one result of PHT's status as the only ISO 2001:9000-certified handheld eDiary provider. Other ISO-related measures towards sustainability include a full-scale implementation of the Oracle EBS system to improve productivity and reduce PHT's carbon footprint.

PHT also chooses partners and vendors that engage in environmentally sound practices. PHT's newest ePRO devices were specifically sourced to offer the best data capture for patients from vendors that also are ISO 14001 certified and have earned environmental management systems qualification.

Additionally, PHT ePRO devices and IT components are managed by Green-Tech Assets who reuse, crush or recycle all materials. Certification of destruction is provided for all de-commissioned devices according to EPA regulations as well as applicable local and ISO regulations.
