Parexel has extended its alliance with Phase Forward, allowing Parexel to continue to offer Phase Forward's InForm electronic data capture (EDC) product as part of its solution set. The two companies first partnered in 1999. Parexel also uses Phase Forward's Clintrial product, a clinical data management and analysis system which integrates electronic and paper-based study data, as well as Clintrace software, an adverse event tracking and reporting system.
"We are pleased to continue our alliance with Phase Forward and to be able to provide our clients with a premier EDC solution that integrates with our overall technology platform for their global clinical development programs," said Mark A. Goldberg, M.D., president of Clinical Research Services and Perceptive Informatics at Parexel.
"As EDC continues to gain traction, we believe we can help biopharmaceutical and medical device companies realize the full benefits of EDC, and we look forward to working with Parexel in pursuing this goal," said Bob Weiler, chief executive officer and president, Phase Forward.
