Perceptive Informatics Surveys to Medical Imaging Metrics to Meet Clinical Study



To make clinical trials more advanced and result-oriented, Perceptive Informatics, an eClinical solutions provider and a subsidiary of PAREXEL International Corporation, has done a survey. According to a press release, the company has announced results of the global survey conducted during its webinar entitled “Medical Imaging Web Reporting: Helping Sponsors Simplify Central Imaging Study Management through Metrics.”

The survey results showed that over half (54 percent) of respondents review medical imaging related study metrics on a regular basis. Of those respondents, 81 percent use medical imaging metrics as actionable data to inform progress toward the achievement of study milestones.

Key performance indicators used by the respondents include the status of site qualification for imaging-based clinical trials, as well as progress of medical image submissions, query responses, and radiology reviews.

“Industry-standard performance metrics for imaging core labs have become an important element of effective study management. Centralized access to medical imaging metrics for multiple trials and cross-study program monitoring is especially critical for comprehensive analysis,” said Kenneth G. Faulkner, Ph.D., vice president of Medical Imaging at Perceptive Informatics. “Perceptive Informatics is focused on providing sophisticated reporting capabilities to help our clients optimize strategic decision-making about the performance of their imaging-based clinical trials.”

The medical imaging reporting solution from Perceptive Informatics is designed to show medical imaging data for improved analysis and decision-making. The imaging dashboard, which provides key performance indicators, is enabled by a comprehensive suite of reports.

 In other company news, HealthTechZone reported that Perceptive Informatics recently announced the availability of a SaaS-based CTMS solution. The SaaS-based CTMS, which is hosted, maintained and supported entirely by Perceptive Informatics, enables sponsors to plan, administer and track clinical trial activities in a cost effective and efficient manner.

The Perceptive Informatics SaaS-Based CTMS solution allows sponsors to save time in study start-up due to a rapid, flexible, scalable and secure deployment approach supported by Perceptive's eClinical platform.
