etrials Worldwide Introduces New eClinical Capabilities At DIA’s 45th Annual Meeting in San Diego

etrials Worldwide, Inc. (Nasdaq: ETWC), a leading provider of adaptive eClinical solutions , today announced it is launching several of its newest eClinical capabilities, including three new eDiary devices, an all access portal environment and an on demand data export tool at this week’s Drug Information Association (DIA) Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif.

Adding three Windows-based eDiary devices, grows etrials’ customer device options for electronic patient reported outcomes to four, including three touch screen PDAs and a ruggedized PDA phone, operating on enhanced software functionality allowing customers to tailor their eDiary solution to study requirements and budgets.

With the etrials Portal, customers gain the ability to access each of etrials’ eClinical applications -- including its electronic data capture (EDC), integrated Web interface (IWR) administrative Web interface for drug supply and randomization and eDiary data -- all from a single username and password sign-on portal environment. Therein, a host of portlets provide customized dashboard views and enable the seamless toggle between studies and eClinical solutions.

The etrials’ Data Exports on Demand tool puts the control back into the hands of clinical operations and biostatisticians by allowing them to export study data when they want it and how they want it. Accessible directly within the etrials portal, it allows users to instantly download of SAS datasets, CSV files and/or Microsoft Access database files with the click of a button.

“etrials’ latest capabilities are an extension of our best-of-breed eClinical solutions suite designed to help make the clinical trial process smarter,” said M. Denis Connaghan, Chief Executive Officer of etrials Worldwide. “Each of these new developments focus on enhancing integral parts of the clinical data management process and clearly provide research sponsors and contract research organizations with a more efficient, compliant and cost effective way to manage their clinical trials.”

etrials’ Three New eDiaries, All Access Portal and Data Exports on Demand, among other new capabilities will be demonstrated in San Diego, Calif., at the DIA’s 45 Annual Meeting, booth #1321.
