News Facts

JSS Medical Research, a full-service contract research organization (CRO) headquartered in Montreal, has deployed Oracle® Health Sciences applications including Oracle Clinical, Oracle Remote Data Capture and Oracle Thesaurus Management System to support its expansion plans into the global clinical trials market.
JSS Medical Research plans to use the Oracle Health Sciences applications to support its business unit focused on clinical trial data management.
The emerging CRO expects to launch its first Oracle Clinical-supported study this month and plans to use Oracle Clinical to manage data for all of its new studies by the end of 2009.
JSS Medical Research offers services covering the entire spectrum of the study from conception to the dissemination of results. Its research team is comprised of clinical epidemiologists, physicians, biostatisticians, project managers and information technology experts who work together to help ensure the success of its projects.
In order to support its strategy of expanding its presence in North America and entering the European market, JSS Medical Research required a robust, proven and highly reliable and scalable clinical data management system to replace its legacy systems that were developed in-house.
BioPharm Systems, an Oracle Certified Partner, worked with JSS Medical Research to help deploy and validate the system to comply with U.S. Food and Drug Administration as well as European regulatory agency requirements.
