BioClinica WebSend Effects Rapid Change in Clinical Trial Image Management with Adoption Rate Surpassing 90%

NEWTOWN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BioClinica®, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOC), a global provider of clinical trial management solutions, announced that BioClinica WebSend has been included in more than 90% of its 2011 imaging core lab business signings. WebSend benefits clinical trials by speeding access to clinical imaging data while reducing errors and costs by securely sending medical images over the Internet, rather than using courier services.

“The ease of use and resulting high adoption rate by sites have encouraged nearly every one of our top imaging core lab clients to implement this technology,” said Mark Weinstein, CEO of BioClinica. “Unlike alternatives, all of the system capabilities are fully integrated with our core lab processes to streamline the collection, processing, archival and analysis of medical image data. The simplicity and speed of WebSend make the business case direct and compelling.”

WebSend is the most comprehensive solution available for effectively managing electronic image receipt and de-identification from investigator sites. In addition to image transfer, it also includes online viewing of images, web-based reporting for key stakeholders (including trial sponsors), and “cloud-based” image archiving. WebSend integrates with BioClinica onsite image archival and workflow management tools (BioPACS) and read systems (BioREAD) which house imaging reader response data, protocol-specific eCRFs, and more.

“Compared to the history of many other clinical technologies, WebSend adoption is truly dramatic,” said Mr. Weinstein. “WebSend addresses the economic and process improvement pressures that face clinical development with clear and present benefits. It’s an easy choice for most sponsors.”
