Irvine, CA and Rockville, MD. (PRWEB) March 19, 2008 — ClinicAid Research Management is now using online collaboration technology from HyperOffice to conduct pharmaceutical and biotech clinical trials research in the United States.
The provider of comprehensive clinical trials is connecting managers and employees with HyperOffice, http://www.hyperoffice.com, award-winning software as a service that makes it easier for owners, employees, clients, partners and suppliers of growing businesses to collaborate, communicate, plan projects, share and edit online documents, schedule meetings, and manage information anytime and from any Internet connection.
For the highly regulated medical industry, the collaboration suite features online file storage with built-in version controls, audit trails and levels of security that are critical for online data and project management, report writing and statistical analyses, and ClinicAid plans to extend HyperOffice use to include physician investigators and pharmaceutical sponsors.
“In order to keep up with the demand and growth of services, we needed a scalable, but affordable enterprise solution that integrated essential business tools,” said Dr. Dwight Tapp, chief executive officer of ClinicAid. “One option was to invest time, effort, and capital into an expensive architecture of servers, software, and outside technology consultants. HyperOffice was a perfect alternative for us.
“Unlike many web solutions which provide limited business applications, HyperOffice offers a suite of business tools in a secure and reliable online environment without any upfront IT costs,” said Dr. Tapp. “The solution was clear; with HyperOffice we achieve a world-class collaboration and communication platform that adds to our business capabilities, operational agility, and responsiveness to customers without the constraints of traditional IT-platforms”.
HyperOffice delivers to growing organizations today the power and productivity of collaboration software that only the largest company with a mammoth IT budget could otherwise afford — business-class email without spam and viruses; document management with online file storage, versioning, user rights and workflow; contact management, scheduling, task management, discussion groups, security, backup, portal customization, customer portals, extranets and intranets, time and expense tracking, and more.
ClinicAid, http://www.clinicaidusa.com, is a Contract Research Organization (CRO) to clinical investigators, a Research Consortium to pharmaceutical sponsors, and a provider of innovative drugs to improve the quality of life for patients. Much like large pharmaceutical companies outsourcing their Research and Development components to conventional CROs to gain economies of scale and operational efficiencies, physician-investigators are realizing the benefits of outsourcing models for improving their own economies of scale and capturing economic advantages by reducing costly overhead. As a pharmaceutical partner, ClinicAid functions as a Research Consortium to Sponsors, bringing qualified research sites and larger research centers managed under a unified model to perform research trials.
