Press Release | Clinovo | March 27, 2013

Clinovo releases its open-source community for users of ClinCapture® and developers around the world to collaborate on the enhancement of its open-source Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system.

Sunnyvale, CA. March 27, 2013. ClinCapture's® open-source community brings users and developers together to constantly enhance the EDC system and better meet the needs of life science companies. ClinCapture® is the most advanced open-source Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system. It is tailored to meet the needs of life science companies looking to run cost-effective phase I to IV clinical trials, investigator and registry studies.

"I strongly believe open-source is the future of clinical trials”, explains Marc Desgrousilliers, CTO at Clinovo. Clinovo envisions to develop new top-of-the-edge features, increase ClinCapture's® performance and bring user experience to the next level." Users and developers' involvement in ClinCapture's® community will ultimately help deliver medical innovations faster to patients".

Electronic Data Capture (EDC) developers can download ClinCapture® on and start contributing their code.

Tom Hickerson, Senior EDC Manager at Clinovo and first open-source EDC expert, gave an interview on his 10 years of experience with open-source Electronic Data Capture (EDC). He explains the benefits of open-source EDC, describes the new feature enhancements added to ClinCapture®, and details the product roadmap for 2013.  “We are looking at an ambitious roadmap for 2013, including a series of focused releases, in which community members will play an instrumental role”.
