The complexity of clinical research and development has increased exponentially, putting a strain on outdated systems used to support the business processes required to conduct a clinical trial. To alleviate these complexities, Oracle Health Sciences recently launched Clinical One Randomization and Supplies Management Cloud Service (ORS), which reduces the time required for study set up from nearly two months to just a few days.

For more than 70 percent of respondents, slowness to build, test and deploy new trials; integration with other platforms and lack of flexibility; and inability to support study changes were paramount.
“Our mission is to support our pharmaceutical and CRO customers in bringing drugs to market faster, and more efficiently,” said Steve Rosenberg, general manager, Oracle Health Sciences. “We continue to drive new innovations to simplify the building, launching, and operation of clinical trials. ORS represents a major step in that regard by greatly reducing the build time. Each day saved during a clinical trial is one day closer to bringing a new therapy to market for patients waiting in need.”
A breakthrough in conducting trials, Oracle Clinical One Randomization and Supplies Management enables pharmaceutical companies to gain new levels of:
