July 18, 2012. NEWTOWN, PA – BioClinica®, Inc., (NASDAQ: BIOC), a global provider of clinical trial management solutions has partnered with ClinPlan, LLC, a niche consulting and staffing provider to the biopharmaceutical industry, to deliver clinical supply simulation services in conjunction with BioClinica Optimizer, the only clinical trial supply forecasting tool that fine tunes and validates the mathematical optimization process using clinical trial simulation to more accurately eliminate unnecessary overage, minimize drug waste and reduce trial costs.
"We are honored to have been selected as ClinPlan's tool of choice for providing clinical supply chain simulation services to their clients," said Peter Benton, President of BioClinica's eClinical Solutions. "We look forward to growing our relationship and working closely with them in the years to come."
ClinPlan initially contacted BioClinica to hear more about offerings for clinical supply chain simulation. After learning more about the integration between BioClinica Optimizer and various Interactive Response Technology systems (IRT), ClinPlan entered into an agreement with BioClinica in April 2012 to partner with BioClinica for its current and future engagements. The companies have already begun working together on mutual customers.
"We could not be more thrilled to partner with BioClinica to deliver the best and most efficient solutions to our clients," said Spencer Comtois, Ph.D., Principal Consultant and CEO of ClinPlan. "BioClinica's services and best-in-class technology answer our customers' needs to maximize efficiencies across the clinical supply chain."
Peter Benton, President of BioClinica's eClinical Solutions stated, "BioClinica is always looking for opportunities to partner with the best and brightest in the industry. ClinPlan's services bring a fresh alternative to both our existing clients and potential customers. We are happy to pair our best-of-breed supply chain solutions with ClinPlan's experience and knowledge base to understand and meet client expectations."
By working collaboratively, both companies expect to develop new ways to integrate Optimizer into more clinical trials, eliminating unnecessary waste and minimizing the challenges that inevitably arise with managing the complexities of clinical supply chains.
