Basel – The Basel software developer Clinerion is one of the finalists in the Stratus Awards for Cloud Computing. The awards recognise companies that develop unique solutions based on remote cloud storage.
Clinerion has developed a platform known as the Patient Recruitment System (PRS), which recruits patients for clinical trials. It accesses hospital health records and then transmits this data into the cloud using single network nodes, explained a statement. Pseudonyms are used in place of patient names to guarantee data security.
“Congratulations to the entire Clinerion team for helping accelerate adoption of the cloud and for working to make all of our lives a little richer,” commented Russ Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group, which holds the Stratus Awards for Cloud Computing.
PRS facilitates increases in clinical trials, because it identifies a high number of suitable patients in a short space of time. This also means that hospitals can generate higher revenues. New hospitals can be incorporated into the network at any time.
Ulf Claesson, CEO of Clinerion, said: “PRS is a working system that is productive, robust and scalable because we built it right – using cloud technology.”
