EmpiriStat Participates in Knowledge Sharing at Clinical Data Management Conference

Greg Kilbride, EmpiriStat's Manager, Data Management and Programming, attended the 2013 OpenClinica Global Conference in Boston, Massachusetts in June 2013, gathering and sharing new insight and information with other OpenClinica users from around the world.

OpenClinica is the world's fastest growing clinical trial software, with over 15,000 community members, and sporting a 246% increase in production implementations and a 975% increase in regulatory submissions. OpenClinica, the world's first commercial open source clinical trial software for Electronic Data Capture (EDC) Clinical Data Management (CDM), has quickly become one of the world's most widely adopted clinical trial software in few years since the first release. OpenClinica is flexible platform powering research in over 100 countries, and has been made more robust by the innovative community that has arisen around it.
For EmpiriStat, OpenClinica is an Open Source, versatile tool that allows us to more easily design, create and maintain electronic Case Report Forms (eCRFs) for clinical trial data, in a cost-effective manner for our collaborators. The web front end allows Mr. Kilbride and his staff to easily access records and capture clinical data.
OpenClinica is a trusted source that has been used in thousands of clinical trials across diverse settings.  The annual Global Conference "allows the multitude of users from around the world to freely share knowledge, feedback, support, and best practices," Greg shared.
Greg Kilbride hails from Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, where he graduated with a degree in Information Technology and a minor in Business Management. It was while in college, and after meeting alumna Dr. Nicole C. Close, EmpiriStat's founder and President, that Greg began working with EmpiriStat creating web applications and databases to house clinical data. He then went on to assist EmpiriStat's then-data manager with the configuration and maintenance of the OpenClinica system. Today, Greg is in charge of configuring and maintaining study data using OpenClinica.
“OpenClinica provides a flexible platform for our clients that meet their needs without over purchasing a system and services from EmpiriStat that they just don’t need. That is why it is important for us as a company and for my team to be engaged in the opensource community and contribute to best practices for both paper and electronic based studies,” stated Dr. Close.
