Nextrials Completes Fourth Consecutive National IHE Interoperability Trial; Prepares to Showcase Prism™ at HIMSS 2011

Nextrials’ clinical trial management platform, Prism, continues to set the pace for interoperability with electronic health records systems used in healthcare settings

SAN RAMON, Calif. & ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nextrials, Inc. (, a leader in clinical research software and services, will showcase the flexibility and interoperability of its award-winning clinical trial management platform, Prism™, at the 2011 Annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference and Exhibition, being held February 20-24 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. Prism is one of the clinical research industry’s only electronic data capture (EDC) platforms fully integrated with platforms used for electronic health records (EHR) by the healthcare industry.

One of the industry’s earliest proponents of the development and use of interoperability standards, Nextrials just wrapped up its fourth consecutive appearance at the IHE North America Connectathon 2011, the healthcare industry’s only large-scale interoperability testing event. During last month’s conference, Nextrials successfully completed all of the criteria required to attend the HIMSS11 Interoperability Showcase™, including a demonstration of Prism’s ability to integrate with U.S.-based and international EHR systems.

“Nextrials is a leader in the effort to promote interoperability between platforms utilized for clinical trial research and those in use in the healthcare setting,” said James Rogers, CEO and co-founder of Nextrials. “Interoperability demonstrations such as the HIMSS Showcase help us clearly illustrate the benefits for all stakeholders, and show how efficient the process of exchanging patient-related data can be.”

The HIMSS Interoperability Showcase Connected Demonstration area (Booth #7343 in Hall E) features more than 70+ clinical information systems from ambulatory, hospital/provider, emergency, chronic care, public health, clinical research and others. These systems connect seamlessly in the Connected Demonstration area using standards-based solutions such as IHE, ONC/HITSP and ONC-recognized standards. The collaborative effort of the leading vendors and organizations in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase are breaking the barriers to implementation to provide clinical research and healthcare organizations with effective, economical solutions.

Nextrials’ award-winning Prism melds sophisticated clinical trial management functionality with EDC in a single, integrated package. By receiving a constant flow of data, Prism enables sponsors and sites to fully utilize real-time integration of disparate information and data sources, such as a hospital’s EHR or patient records, to better provide a continuum of care for patients enrolled in clinical trials.
