Cardiac Safety Services

Solutions you need to achieve your goals in cardiac safety in drug development

The proper assessment and reporting of cardiac safety data is a key component of your compound’s journey through clinical trials. Issues of cardiovascular safety with a new compound are seldom limited to a single study or phase. Bioclinica supports your entire study cycle, from Phase I to Phase IV. We offer a range of services to help you effectively plan, implement, and report on the cardiovascular safety of your drug.

Key components of cardiac safety in clinical trials

Bioclinica’s cardiovascular safety team has a deep understanding of the key endpoints needed for successful cardiac safety studies, including  ECG measurement, QT/QTc  studies, and blood pressure monitoring.

  • ECG Measurements

  • Thorough and Intensive QT Studies

  • Blood Pressure Monitoring

  • Medical & Scientific Expertise

Cardiac machine

ECG data delivery is a pivotal element of your cardiac safety plan. Bioclinica is a leading provider of ECG measurement services, with more than 25 years’ experience designing and conducting successful studies. We offer a range of options tailored to your compound and to the requirements of regulatory authorities.

Cardiac Safety Analysis and Expert Reporting

Bioclinica recognizes the need to provide comprehensive services from study design and conduct to expert reporting of cardiac safety data. We possess strong capabilities in analyzing and presenting ECG/ABPM/CV data in regulatory, expert report format, and we support regulatory meetings and presentations. Our statistical and medical writing team has authored more than 250 expert reports, most of which supported regulatory submissions and full TQT protocol development.


WebHeart™ Platform

Simplify the process of managing cardiovascular data

Tracking cardiovascular safety can be a frustrating component of the drug development process. Multiple software programs for different types of data, the need to wait for periodic reports, and multi-step processes often required to review data from various sources can all hinder your ability to efficiently manage data and make rapid, informed decisions about your compound.

When you partner with Bioclinica, you gain access to WebHeart™, the comprehensive tool to seamlessly manage your cardiovascular safety data. WebHeart streamlines the management, processing, analysis, and reporting of cardiac data.

WebHeart™ is our proprietary, web-based, validated, 21 CFR part 11 compliant and configurable cardiovascular safety platform. ECG (12-lead digital ECG from standardized bedside device, extracted from 12-lead digital Holter, or direct upload from clinical pharmacology unit) and blood pressure data (ABPM, home and office BP) are centralized in WebHeart™.

Benefits of conducting your study within the WebHeart™ platform include:

  • Timeliness: rapid, real-time management of study data via secure internet access. Continuous QA monitoring and reporting
  • Flexibility: configurable for sponsor-specific protocols. MCC metrics based on sponsor specifications
  • Compatibility: platform is device agnostic, allowing for integration of multiple ECG and BP technologies based on industry advancements
  • Scalability: centralized storage of cardiovascular data for clinical trials of all sizes and scopes
  • Security: multi-layered security, using a role-based, ‘rights-restricted’ model. Disaster recovery and other security considerations are built into the platform and SOPs. 
  • Convenience: no special software, plug-ins, or add-ons required. Provides submission-ready digital data

How we help you successfully navigate the cardiac safety component of your clinical trial: 

Continuous collaboration
with Bioclinica to address all scientific and regulatory requirements
Stay on to of analysis
with data and visuals for any presentation or meeting
Manage data easily
all in one platform, for quick insights and scalability
