As we bid farewell to 2018 and begin rounding the corner to 2019, we find ourselves reflecting on all we’ve achieved this year. Our team enjoyed supporting research professionals worldwide as they built studies, deployed to sites around the globe, and continued to efficiently collect data using the platform’s latest technologies. We also rolled out some major updates to both the web-based eClinical system, Clinical Studio, and its mobile companion, TrialKit, with a goal to make compliant clinical data management as efficient as possible. Below are some of the year’s highlights at a glance:
A Clinical Studio system update included reporting objects that can be defined to take advanced looks at study progress and clinical endpoints, and display them directly within a study web page or downloadable PDF.
Research teams facilitating clinical trials on Clinical Studio or TrialKit may now store their data on a private cloud server via AWS, allowing for more control over the hardware and an added measure for safeguarding their data.
The development team made massive strides on a standalone version of csCoder, a medical coding platform, making it a fully separate platform from Clinical Studio, but still auto-integrated for studies collecting their data in Clinical Studio.
We began hosting data at an Ireland-based data center for European clients as per GDPR regulations.
TrialKit was officially launched on Google Play for Android devices, making it available on 99 percent of the world’s smartphones.
csCoder was enhanced to include support of log tables and ability to pull in any other data pertinent for coding to each record.
ePRO and new handoff mode on TrialKit bring greater flexibility for patients to enter their own data.
A recent update incorporated Apple’s biometric technologies for user authentication using TrialKit so that iPhone users may sign in to the app via facial recognition or fingerprint recognition.
Inventory management capabilities received enhancements both on Clinical Studio and TrialKit. Document scanning was also added to TrialKit for Android.
What To Look For in 2019
- Improved adjudication on TrialKit and making it fully available on Clinical Studio
- Improved reporting and scheduling
- Enhanced flexibility with AWS and study-specific data center control
- Even more in store…
While we are grateful for the success we’ve witnessed our clients experience throughout the year, we’re even more optimistic about the accomplishments we anticipate in 2019. The entire team at Crucial Data Solutions looks forward to a continued future of lowering the cost of medical research and making a difference in the lives of patients everywhere.
