New Data System Adopted at Baylor

Baylor College of Medicine, the 10th largest medical school in the country, is installing software to capture and report data electronically from clinical trials, as well as to manage clinical trial research operations. The Web-based software, developed by Advanced Clinical Software Inc., will create a standard research platform with a single user interface that can be used across all hospitals where Baylor conducts research.

Helen Shepherd, director of research infrastructure programs for Baylor, said the school invested in the software because, “in order to stay at the forefront of clinical research, we've realized that we need to push our research capabilities to the next level.” The software, she added, “will give our physician investigators and their research staff a flexible and compliant tool for creating and managing case report forms, adverse event documents and other source documents."
