Edge

EDGE is a clinical trials software that supports a wide range of research management functions and empowers research managers, data analysts, research nurses, clinicians and support services to make the most of their information. By allowing organisations to actively manage research within a single online system, information can be better organised and analysed in real-time. Multiple institutions can collaborate on a range of projects and EDGE’s reporting tools can help streamline the research governance and approval process. EDGE is the culmination of over a decade of clinical trials software development hosted by Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust in conjunction with the University of Southampton.

Emergency Scientific and Medical Services (ESMS)

Emergency Scientific and Medical Services (ESMS) provides 24 hour emergency response for clinical trials. Our vision is to be the gold standard provider for Clinical Trial Emergency Response. It is a challenge for many sponsors to maintain 24 hour emergency cover. This is demonstrated by major GCP inspection findings including:

– No clear or tested out of hours procedure
– Failure to supply trial subjects with emergency contact details

Evolving from Guy’s Poisons Unit our team of information scientists and consultant toxicology physicians are trained to perform emergency unblinding according to strictly controlled, client approved procedures. Study specific information can be accessed to support medical treatment without the need to unblind the subject. Key benefits of ESMS support:

– Manned 24/7 availability with access to study information
– GCP compliant
– Consolidated oversight of adverse events
– All enquires are audio recorded, documented and quality checked
– Local phone support in > 70 countries and > 40 languages
