Perceptive Informatics, a leading eClinical solutions provider and a subsidiary of PAREXEL International Corporation, today released a new web-based version of the DataLabs Designer™ module, which is part of Perceptive’s DataLabs® electronic data capture (EDC) solution. The web-based study design tool, which can be hosted by Perceptive, provides clinical study teams worldwide with online access to collaboratively design trials. This core capability assists in streamlining workflow and improving the efficiency of the study design process.

The study design tool empowers sponsors to have enhanced oversight of the study design process and to track progress. Web-based access facilitates the use of a centralised, controlled library of study design components that can be validated, tested and available for reuse on all new studies. The library includes forms with edit checks to assist teams in designing studies faster, thereby helping to decrease study start-up and development timelines. The standardised forms can be adapted for multiple trials to further enhance efficiency.

“Optimising the trial process is a key priority for the biopharmaceutical industry. The release of this new web-based version of our study design tool reinforces Perceptive’s commitment to provide advanced functionality in our EDC solution to simplify user workflow,” said David Stein, senior director, product management, Perceptive Informatics. “To accommodate the needs of companies of all sizes, the DataLabs Designer tool was developed with the flexibility to be implemented in the customer’s environment or hosted by Perceptive.”

The DataLabs system, suitable for all types and sizes of clinical trials, has a hybrid capability that enables studies to include sites using paper case report forms (CRFs) and support existing paper processes. With a single electronic clinical data management platform to unify the functionality of paper data entry with the flexibility of EDC, the DataLabs system provides sponsors with the flexibility to choose their preferred method of data collection.

The DataLabs EDC solution is part of Perceptive’s eClinical Suite, which provides interoperability among systems, including the IMPACT® clinical trial management system (CTMS) and ClinPhone® RTSM technologies. The eClinical Suite is a dramatic shift toward maximally leveraging technology to accelerate development. The suite supports real-time data interchange, simplifies workflow, and enables diverse applications to work synergistically while facilitating effective trial management.
