Gleneagles CRC Selects Oracle® Health Sciences Applications for Strategic Clinical IT Platform

Contract Research Organization to Utilize Oracle’s Best-in-Class Health Sciences Applications, Equipping Itself for Long-Term Growth and Expansion

Singapore – May 14, 2009

News Facts

Gleneagles CRC Pte Ltd, an Asia-Pacific regional contract research organization providing full service clinical trial and biometrics solutions to drug developers, has selected Oracle® Clinical and Oracle’s Siebel Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) to help improve operational efficiencies and meet growth expectations in its clinical data management practice.
A fully-owned subsidiary of Parkway Holdings Limited, one of Asia's largest providers of private healthcare, Gleneagles CRC has a wide network of investigators and sites across Asia and Australasia, with extensive experience across therapeutic areas.
To support its plans for continued expansion in the global clinical trial market, Gleneagles CRC required a proven, robust, flexible, secure and scalable clinical trial and project management IT infrastructure.
Oracle Clinical’s established status as a global standard in data management, built specifically for the health sciences sector, was a strong assurance to the company and its sponsors, while Oracle Siebel CTMS’ capability to track the full spectrum of activities involved in the clinical trial process – time, budgets, issue tracking and resolution, and operations management – was a critical factor. Both proved decisive in the selection of Oracle.
Another key differentiator for Oracle was Oracle Clinical’s tight integration with the Oracle Database, complete with highly developed user interface, to provide many of the robust and flexible system features.
Gleneagles CRC expects Oracle Clinical to help improve its data management as well as electronic data capture, and Oracle’s Siebel CTMS to facilitate the operational tracking of resources, budgeting, and overall project management.
