NEWTOWN, Pa., Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BioClinica®, Inc., a specialty clinical trials technology and services provider today announced that Vitrana has joined its eHealth App xChange™, an alliance channel for technology innovation across life sciences and healthcare. Vitrana's E2B Transformation and Gateway Application will be offered as part of BioClinica's transformative eHealth Cloud™ solutions.
"Vitrana applications ease the transition to universal information management and exchange standards adoption, and in partnering we're bringing this innovation to clinical trials and safety information processing," said BioClinica Global Product Development Senior Vice President Andrew Masters. Vitrana's application transforms E2B R2 messages into HL7 v3 formats for both regulatory agency submission and partner organization exchange in a secure way. "Sponsors can submit their ICSRs electronically via the E2B Gateway, meeting compliance criteria using new E2B R3 standards."
"Integrating a standards-based E2B solution where sponsors can address both agency and partner needs with speed and security was a key factor in our decision to partner on this," Masters explained. The application allows BioClinica customers to submit adverse event messages to regulatory agencies and also exchange this information with partner organizations." A flexible, interoperable transformation engine converts existing datasets to HL7 information exchange standards without adding costs.
"We are excited about the innovation our partnership brings to clinical trials and drug safety," said Vitrana President and CEO Mohit Gupta. "Making our application available as part of the BioClinica platform eases sponsors' transition to universal information management and exchange standards, alleviating risks, without interrupting their business operations."
"We are pleased to welcome Vitrana as an eHealth App xChange partner," Masters said.
