News Facts

Pharmacons, a clinical research organization servicing companies supplying pharmaceutical, biotech, medical and surgical devices, and healthcare and skin care R&D services, has deployed a range of Oracle® Health Sciences applications, including Oracle Clinical and Oracle Remote Data Capture, to enhance its operational efficiencies and outcomes in clinical trial management.
Pharmacons is the first clinical research organization in China to deploy Oracle Clinical.
Pharmacons required a solution to better serve its international and local clients by reducing the time and cost of research and development (R&D) programs while maintaining high quality standards.
Oracle Clinical and Oracle Remote Data Capture provide the health sciences sector with the most integrated clinical data management and electronic data capture applications available today, while also providing best-of-breed functionality.
The reputation and proven track record of these solutions in the industry were decisive factors in Pharmacons selecting Oracle.
With the implementation of Oracle Clinical and Oracle Remote Data Capture, Pharmacons is experiencing smoother and more efficient data handling throughout the clinical studies and trials it conducts.
With Oracle Thesaurus Management System, Pharmacons is able to utilize the system’s centralized, globally available repository of dictionary and associated verbatim terms. This has helped the company to greatly streamline the critical and costly task of classifying and deriving standard medical and drug terms from verbatim data.
