PPD began using the Oracle Clinical/Remote Data Capture (OC/RDC) application in 2004, and has built more than 380 studies using it. The OC/RDC application is integrated with our IVRS and global central lab system. OC/RDC is a fully web-based electronic data capture (EDC) system with data stored in a central database with integrated CRF design, full edit-check and dictionary functionalities. PPD offers web-based training for OC/RDC and has utilized OC/RDC with more than 16,000 investigative sites worldwide.
In March 2009, PPD entered into an enterprise adoption model with Phase Forward and began building studies using Oracle® InForm. Part of and hosted by Oracle Health Sciences, InForm has enabled PPD to more efficiently and effectively collect and manage clinical data to accelerate clinical timelines while reducing costs and risks.
Trusted by life sciences organizations globally for the most complex trials, InForm is a cloud-based comprehensive, integrated, open standards-based data capture and management platform utilized across all therapeutic areas in thousands of trials globally, with over 100,000 sites trained.
