This is a great platform that has boosted our organization in research and data collection. It integrates data that is reliable for planning and effective in decision making. The support team is always ready to offer any assistance when contacted. Research in medicine and health-related challenges has highly improved since we deployed this tool.

THE SOFTWARE IS IDEAL IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A WAY TO GATHER INFORMATION ON VARIOUS TRIALS AND SHARE WITH OTHER DEPARTMENTS AND MEMBERS OF YOUR GROUP. THIS CAN BE DONE VIA THE CLOUD WHICH SIMPLIFIES THE WHOLE PROCESS. THE PERFECT PLATFORM TO CAPTURE MANAGE ANALYZE AND REPORT DATE STUDIES ON MULTIPLE AREAS. THE SOFTWARE HOWEVER IS LESS SUITED TO A REAL TIME SITUATION.

ICD is a good tool for companies currently utilizing multiple software platforms to create and monitor clinical trial information. Due to the price, it is best suited for large pharmaceutical manufacturers with active pipelines and high R&D spend. ICD's value is more limited to smaller, more focused companies.

IBM has been well suited for all of the studies that we have helped build and manage at Veristat. As previously mentioned, it has a very intuitive interface and pages are easy to build. Queries, dynamics, and visit rules are easy to build and I like that IBM will show if there are current errors or potential errors with your setup.

ICD is a good tool for collecting data but you have to have other programs to analyze that data. Payments are difficult to track and reporting is mostly non-existent. As a data specialist, I know how to 'see' the data but I have to filter [and] sort the Excel sheet quite a bit in order to pass it on to those requesting the data. Our FDA reports go through a third-party to format correctly and we still need to validate their tables which takes much longer than it should.

This is the first system I've used for electronic data capture and overall it is functional. There are items I wish I had better control over (visit windows, payments, reporting), but ICD is easy to use and easy to program for basic collection. I'm fairly sure I could spend more time on the nuances of the system but there's simply no time when involved in a large subject study.

IBM Clinical Development makes the study design easy. Working with IBM Clinical give[s] control to the designer all in one place. Something to improve is the testing for the design and the error messages: they are not always helpful and sometimes the issue is not identified by the error and need[s] much more investigation.

IBM Clinical Development (ICD) is best suited while setting up a study. It is really quick and very simple to set up a study without unnecessary complexities in navigation. Though, it may not be suited to build a study with high design complexity, for an Oncology study where the sub-folders are needed, for example.

Is well suited in scenarios where the main requirement is to design and manage randomization and trial supplies in a single interface with minimal coding. It is not appropriate in scenarios where the budget is short for EDC and associated modules, since what comes default might not be sufficient or the project may need advanced resources/modules (e.g., laboratory management), which come at additional cost.

IBM Clinical Development is a great platform for medical device studies. It is user-friendly and allows external data imports. The drawback in some studies, especially pharma, may be the concept of repeating pages rather than one page with repeating rows. Also, the study design cannot be imported from an Excel spreadsheet, so for companies building multiple studies in a tight timeframe, this slows down the process.

IBM Clinical Development (ICD) is easy to learn not only for designers but also for end-users. It has a well organized design wizard for designers to go over the design process step by step and a strong, solid design checking tool to see if there are any errors or warnings on the design.
