(April 18, 2008- Saratoga Springs, NY) – Criterium, Inc., the full service, global, technology driven contract research organization announced today that after successfully working with OmniComm Systems, Inc. on several clinical studies, it has chosen OmniComm’s TrialMaster™ Electronic Data Capture (EDC) solution as its commercial EDC of choice.

By choosing to join the OmniComm CRO Preferred Program, Criterium will offer its clients TrialMaster™ EDC as another important instrument in its full-service array of superior products and proprietary processes for collecting data in real-time and managing sites remotely.

“Criterium has been in the business of providing high-quality, global clinical trial support services to the drug development industry for nearly 20 years. We have had the opportunity to become familiar with many of the EDC systems in the marketplace and have chosen TrialMaster™ based on its superior functionality and compatibility with Criterium’s StudyControlTM, our centralized clinical trial data management environment,” said John M. Hudak, President and Founder of Criterium.

“We work successfully with OmniComm. TrialMaster™, along with our other data sources, integrate seamlessly with our data management system. Our workflow is designed to take advantage of the daily receipt of real-time data from our internally developed technology solutions – IVR, FAX scanning, Web enabled forms – and OmniComm’s processes, so that we can obtain and disseminate real-time information about what’s happening in the field. EDC systems only work as well as the site staff inputting data and the CRO staff receiving it. The Criterium- OmniComm team manages the data throughout the process from site entry to database lock with information that is useful for decisionmaking during the study. We appreciate the virtues of a adding a superior EDC product to our mix, and the real dedication to customer service that the OmniComm-Criterium team delivers throughout the process.”
