MEDIA, PA September 20, 2007 - Scientific Software Tools,
Inc. (SST), a leader in the area of technology-enabling software and services
for clinical trials, announced today that VISTA, a web-based technology designed
for electronic data capture (EDC) clinical studies, has been chosen by a Pennsylvania-based
biotech company for use in its multi-national EDC clinical trial.
Traditional manual processes used in clinical trials are tedious and time-consuming,
resulting in numerous inefficiencies that are especially apparent when dealing
with international sites that are geographically dispersed. VISTA improves the
communication flow between these remote investigative sites and the study sponsor,
thus ensuring that the necessary information required is obtained quickly and
Elise Furman, President of Scientific Software Tools Inc., said, "Study sponsors
and investigators have recognized that the use of automation in clinical studies
can help to avoid unnecessary delays and problems that are often created by
inefficient manual processes. We are clearly starting to gain traction with
pharmaceutical and biotech sponsors who are recognizing the value of the VISTA
technology in improving the data collection process and aiding in the success
of EDC clinical trials."
"VISTA has consistently exceeded the expectations of our pharmaceutical and
biotech customers by providing an automated solution that is robust yet user-friendly
for non-technical investigators. We will continue to improve and upgrade VISTA
to provide a high-quality product that enhances the study experience for all
stakeholders involved in a clinical study."
