Continuing Use and Adoption of OpenClinica for Clinical Data Management

Tim Bradford, Bioinformatics and eSciences Manager at the Oxford NIHR Biomedical Research Council, was another proponent of open source, in particular OpenClinica which he noted is now implemented in production environments in 650 instances of which 34 are in the USA and 29 in Europe – he mentioned that 200 regulatory submissions are expected in 2012!

He also mentioned that Oxford do run training in OpenClinica if you’re interested in implementing but lacking the expertise... Tim’s team are aware of the shortcomings of the software and have experience adapting it to meet specific needs – to the extent that “Since adopting the technology 18 months ago it is being used live [by Oxford] in 46 studies across 30 sites and has recruited in excess of 6000 subjects”. He also mentioned that they are using MIRTHConnect  (more open source)

For tissue storage they are using Labvantage Sapphire and to mine clinical data from Cerner Millennium they are using Power Insight.
