Oracle has announced the availability of Oracle Health Sciences Central Coding Release 3.0.
The third generation of the web-based clinical trial data coding and dictionary management application includes expanded query management and automated workflows that help clinical trial sponsors and contract research organisations (CROs) improve the efficiency and consistency of the coding process.
Oracle Health Sciences Central Coding Release 3.0 features enhanced integration with Oracle Health Sciences InForm Global Trial Management system, which promotes greater productivity via improved query management and workflow.
This release enables users to create and manage Oracle Health Sciences InForm Global Trial Management queries directly in Oracle Health Sciences Central Coding Release 3.0, streamlining the coding process with one point of entry to apply and manage coding updates to all Trial Management-managed trials in process.
A flexible, multilingual application that automates coding and minimises the manual effort required to code verbatim terms, Oracle Health Sciences Central Coding Release 3.0 is the first coding solution to be certified by the Uppsala Monitoring Centre, the World Health Organisation collaborative centre for international drug monitoring.
The release features a new user interface and simplified status information. Customisable flags and status options enable users to tailor and optimise their workflow.
Auto-query, propagate and auto-close tools significantly enhance productivity by reducing the manual effort required to raise and resolve queries.
Oracle Health Sciences Central Coding Release 3.0 benefitted from substantial user community participation and feedback, helping to deliver a richer and more broadly tested solution.
“Consistent coding is fundamental to normalising data for analysis and regulatory submission, but it’s no easy task in today's complex, global research environment,” says Neil de Crescenzo, senior VP and GM, Oracle Health Sciences.
“Integration is critical to achieving the necessary workflows to efficiently code across multiple trials in multiple languages. Oracle Health Sciences Central Coding Release 3.0 provides clinical trial sponsors a more effective means to review, resolve and approve terms across trials and regions.”
