Latest RTSM technology features standardized study components for faster implementation and greater design flexibility

London, 16 June, 2014 – PAREXEL International (NASDAQ: PRXL), a leading global biopharmaceutical services organisation, today announced the launch of a new version of its industry standard ClinPhone® RTSM services designed to help clients start clinical trials more quickly. The leading edge randomisation and trial supply management (RTSM) solution has been used in more than 3,000 studies involving over 400,000 sites and two million patients since 1993. Developed by PAREXEL Informatics, it is a key component of the Perceptive MyTrials® platform, an integrated suite of applications for managing clinical trials.

Biopharmaceutical companies are increasingly seeking to make drug development more efficient without compromising patient safety or data quality. Efficiency is particularly critical at the start of clinical trials, when clients must simultaneously initiate a broad range of important activities such as patient screening, enrollment and randomisation, as well as drug dispensation and supply distribution.

Addressing these issues, ClinPhone® RTSM can be more rapidly implemented using pre-built, interactive web modules for patient, supply and site activities common to every study. PAREXEL Informatics can also streamline system review and approval for clients via an efficient visual design approach.

“Based upon our experience across thousands of studies, we have identified ways to standardise common functionality for patient screening, medication re-supply and other fundamental study activities,” said Xavier Flinois, President of PAREXEL Informatics. “Our customers can simplify trial management activities, and ultimately start their trials more quickly, using our powerful and flexible RTSM technology.”

“There is a growing need for faster, more efficient clinical trials, yet conducting them has become increasingly complex,” said Mark A. Goldberg, M.D., President and Chief Operating Officer, PAREXEL. “Trial success often hinges on start-up speed and effectiveness. At PAREXEL, we view drug development as a journey, and have made considerable investments in developing cutting-edge technology to help simplify it from beginning to end.”

ClinPhone® RTSM is available through the Perceptive MyTrials® platform and as a standalone solution. ClinPhone® RTSM and the Perceptive MyTrials® platform are also available through the Perceptive® Partner Program.
