Verifiable Investigative Site Technology Assessment
MEDIA, PA April 10, 2003 - Scientific Software Tools, Inc.
(SST), a leader in the area of Electronic Data Capture technology, announces
the availability of the first in a suite of services designed to streamline
and improve the initiation and utilization of EDC in clinical research.
VISTA EDC™ works with any internally or 3rd party developed EDC
application, is web-based and quickly evaluates, captures and reports the existing
computer and connectivity state at a prospective investigators site. Quickly
identify, qualify and enroll sites that can meet your EDC goals and requirements.
Elise Furman, RN, MBA, co-founder of Scientific Software Tools, Inc. explains,
"Throughout our 15-year history, we have worked to develop tools that aid in
data collection and delivery. For the last 3 years, we have focused that expertise
on the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and clinical research market, working
with top pharmaceutical companies, researchers and CROs. In the course of working
with these companies to develop EDC applications, risk calculators and associated
software, we found that one of the impediments to effective EDC implementation
involved the investigative site recruitment process. VISTA EDC™ has been proven
to drastically reduce the time needed to evaluate sites. The old process of
creating paper surveys, mailing them to prospective investigators, following
up on the forms to make sure they were received and completed, compiling returns,
evaluating the answers and going back for clarification simply adds too much
time and cost to the process. VISTA EDC" can reduce that time by 75%."
