As part of its commitment to helping life sciences organizations discover, develop, and market innovative products that prevent and cure diseases, Oracle Health Sciences has strengthened its analytics offerings with the release of Oracle® Clinical Development Analytics 2.0 and Oracle Life Sciences Data Hub 2.1.4.
Oracle’s life sciences analytics solutions help organizations accelerate insight and increase research and development efficiency. Oracle Clinical Development Analytics 2.0 expands beyond the product’s original focus on clinical data management to provide rich content for clinical operations.
With more than 360 pre-built and pre-sourced metrics and associated attributes, Oracle Clinical Development Analytics 2.0 enables life sciences organizations to gain insight into trial and program performance and make more informed business decisions by helping them to:
Increase trial efficiency through greater visibility into trial screening, enrollment and retention;
Reduce study start up times by identifying barriers to site readiness and examining key metrics, such as average document collection times for various sites and regions;
Identify trial bottlenecks at low performing sites and regions;
Accelerate database lock by identifying sites with large numbers of outstanding data queries or Electronic Case Report Form pages requiring investigator sign off;
Empower users with easily accessible self-service business reports based on the pre-built data warehouse.
For comprehensive insight across the clinical trial environment, Oracle Clinical Development Analytics 2.0 now sources data directly from Oracle’s Siebel Clinical Trial Management System, in addition to information from Oracle Clinical and Oracle Remote Data Capture.
Oracle Life Sciences Data Hub 2.1.4 is a validated and secure data repository that integrates clinical, non-clinical and safety data from multiple sources into a unified environment. This helps enable organizations to streamline business processes around trial data acquisition, analysis and reporting. Updates to the latest version help:
Improve productivity through significant usability enhancements including personalized Work Areas, simplified submission processes, and enhanced views for object parameters;
Deliver greater insight through expanded business intelligence capabilities that enable support for multiple business areas from a single instance of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition;
Streamline data integration with enhancements that provide object matching from multi-source exports.
Life Sciences Data Hub is being used at global life sciences organizations to help simplify compliance with regulatory requirements and inquiries, obtain improved insight for more informed decision-making, and to increase research and development efficiency.
