August issue of CIO praises Health Decisions’ adaptive and risk-based monitoring solution
Durham, North Carolina—August 13, 2013
IDG’s CIO Magazine tonight presented its 2013 CIO 100 Award to Michael Rosenberg, MD, MPH, Health Decisions, Inc.’s CEO, recognizing the true business value of Health Decisions’ technology for adaptive or risk-based monitoring. CIO also published an award winner’s profile of Health Decisions in its August 2013 issue. CIO presented the award at a banquet at the Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
In the profile, CIO states that with Health Decisions’ Adaptive Monitoring, “…drug and device developers benefit from better-quality data, more efficient use of resources, and substantially shorter program cycles. In some cases, Health Decisions’ adaptive monitoring has reduced monitoring costs by more than 50 percent while ensuring high data quality.”
“The CIO 100 award recognizes the business value of Health Decisions’ adaptive monitoring in ensuring high data quality while reducing costs,” said Dr. Rosenberg. “Monitoring costs are a substantial portion of clinical trial costs and contribute to higher prices for new drugs and medical devices. Our adaptive monitoring solution allows pharma and device companies to rein in these costs without jeopardizing quality.”
Rosenberg stated that adaptive monitoring is one element of Agile Clinical Development, Health Decisions’ comprehensive IT-driven approach to managing and executing clinical trials. “For the drug and device industries, Agile Clinical Development provides a way to get new products to market faster and at lower cost,” Rosenberg said. “For the public, Agile Clinical Development means earlier access to improved treatments at more affordable prices.”
“For 26 years now, the CIO 100 awards have honored the innovative use of technology to deliver genuine business value,” said Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief of CIO magazine & events. “Our 2013 winners are an outstanding example of the transformative power of IT to drive everything from revenue growth to competitive advantage.”
