Oracle Accessibility Conformance Report

VPAT® Version 2.3 - April 2019

Name of Product:

Central Coding 6.2 (Updated)

Product Description:

The Central Coding software is a web-based application that integrates with the Oracle Clintrial software or the Oracle InForm software to provide centralized coding for all studies within an organization. Because the Central Coding software works independently from the Clintrial or InForm software, you can have parallel work paths for the clinical study teams and the clinical coding teams. As a result, coding can happen earlier in the study cycle, providing valuable data visibility for study managers who review and assess study safety concerns.
Coding is the process of mapping a standardized term and code from a given level of a standard coding dictionary to a verbatim. You can code adverse events, drugs, diseases, and other items using consistent terminology defined in industry-standard and customer-defined dictionaries.
The Central Coding software streamlines the coding process with features such as autocoding, customizable synonym and stopword lists, code and propagate functionality, and configurable workflow for the efficient review, resolution, and approval of coded terms-all of which can occur simultaneously and across staff, sites, studies, and locations.
Central Coding 6.2 release supports application to integration with centralized Identity and Access Management System (IAMS), allowing Single Sign On. This release also contains tech stack upgrades such as adding support for Oracle 12c, Windows 2012 R2 (64 bit).
