2009 Winner Profile

Wyeth Pharmaceuticals

Project Description:
Wyeth Pharmaceuticals deployed an electronic data capture system for the collection of drug trial data. Wyeths clinical data is now available almost immediately following patient visits, enabling dynamic trial execution methods and "early fail" business decisions for study projects. The system has also expedited safety reviews of patient data. Information available after using the system for seven months indicated a significant increase in data cleansing efficiency, enabling the company to process four times as many pages per month. More than 50 percent of data is now captured electronically within 48 hours of a patient visit.
