PAREXEL International (PRXL) Release: Perceptive Informatics Enables Greater Trial Supply Efficiency With New Site Inventory Management Module


4/12/2012 10:04:01 AM

BOSTON, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Perceptive Informatics, a leading eClinical solutions provider and a subsidiary of PAREXEL International Corporation (NASDAQ: PRXL), today introduced the new Site Inventory Management Module of its ClinPhone® Randomization and Trial Supply Management (RTSM) solution. The RTSM technologies from Perceptive Informatics offer validated randomization methods, automated inventory control, dispensing and titration management, emergency code break capabilities, and supply reporting. This new web-based module is designed to improve the efficiency of clinical trial management by tracking the movement of supplies at clinical sites in real-time and streamlining workflow for site personnel.

The introduction of the Site Inventory Management Module reinforces a commitment by PAREXEL and Perceptive Informatics to help sponsors meet critical trial milestones and avoid delays due to lack of available study drug caused by late or incomplete arrival of clinical supplies at sites. Through advanced approaches and systems, the Company is focused on real-time confirmation of study supplies and allowing site investigators to more quickly begin using study drugs according to trial protocols. PAREXEL Clinical Logistics Services are supported by enabling technology solutions, including the ClinPhone RTSM solution.

The Site Inventory Management Module provides clinical site personnel with real-time study drug tracking information and efficient tools to take actions based on this information. Advanced features include visibility of drug expiration information, data filtering, simple selection and confirmation of actions, and multi-lingual capability.

"With greater clinical trial complexity, sites require the necessary tools for seamless access to data in order to make better, faster decisions," said Nick Richards, Vice President, Product Management, Perceptive Informatics. "With the introduction of this web-based module, we are enabling site teams to work in a more dynamic and interactive way, and bring more efficiency to trial supply chain processes."

The ClinPhone RTSM solution has been used in over 3,000 studies involving more than 289,000 sites and 1.7 million patients. The RTSM technologies provide sophisticated reporting to monitor trial management performance, trending and forecasting information, and in-depth data analysis. Clinical trials worldwide can be supported in multiple languages through the solution, which provides secure access, a detailed audit trail, transaction logging, and compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11.
