Seattle, WA – September 20, 2011 - StudyManager, a leading provider of clinical trial management software (CTMS) and electronic data capture (EDC) solutions, today announced that BalanceSense, LLC, a healthcare company with specialized interest in postural control of sway, imbalance, and vestibular disequilibrium, awarded StudyManager an eight-site, Phase II Army contract to implement Evolve CTMS and EDC.
BalanceSense sought a flexible, easy to use solution for the management of clinical data captured by physical therapists treating returning troops with mild-trauma brain injuries, and to centralize, track and manage study progress.
“My budget did not allow for outsourcing, however some due diligence convinced me that I needed to outsource study management and data control,” said Dr. Karen Atkins, PhD, PT, Balance Sense, LLC. “I investigated StudyManager on the recommendation of a colleague. StudyManager Evolve provides us with CTMS and EDC integrated into one easy-to-use system, which will allow us to manage both the study and the study data in one central location. We have a small team responsible for managing all aspects of the study, and Evolve will enhance the overall quality of the input and output of data in treating troops with mild-trauma brain injuries.”
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to this important effort in working with Dr. Atkins and her team,” said Sue Blecman, Vice President of Sales, StudyManager. “It’s a privilege for StudyManager and Evolve to have been selected as one of BalanceSense’s civilian partners to support much needed treatment for our returning troops. We look forward to their clinical and operational success with this study.”
