March 1, 2008 | Last November, EVADO was released by Invision IT Systems of Melbourne, Australia, specifically to address the frustrations of researchers and the shortcomings of existing EDC systems. EVADO is a “total management system” that does far more than capture data electronically, says CEO Jennie Anderson. It also has a repository for the uploading of images and other clinical documents, a built-in patient booking and tracking system, and can report on safety data in minutes.
EVADO’s validation module, due for release at the end of April, will remove the need for statistical data validation by a clinical research organization (CRO) or external statistical consultants, Anderson adds. The system’s user interface is also “consistent across all forms” and profoundly simple to use trial to trial.
A December third-party compliance audit revealed that EVADO “exceeds requirements” of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), says Anderson. February brought the release of EVADO’s pre-clinical module, intended to ensure collection of lab and animal data happens in compliance with the FDA as well as TGA Australia, and move seamlessly into first-in-man trials. The unique module will include an electronic lab notebook and Wikipedia type functionality.
EVADO is being offered initially as a Web-based application, but a software-as-a-service (SaaS) option will be available in March, says Anderson. A formal launch of EVADO is scheduled for May.
