Transforming Health Together

 

About ClinTex

Clinical data analytics with a difference.

ClinTex are a solution provider to the pharmaceutical industry, and the team behind CTi – Clinical Trials Intelligence: a new type of software platform aimed at transforming the medicine development industry through the application of predictive analytics, machine learning, and the novel use of blockchain technology and smart contracts in clinical trials.

Our mission is to bring down the cost of medicine and improve the speed to market of new medicines for the people who need them, through vastly reducing development costs for the global pharmaceutical industry.

Clinical Trials Intelligence

CTi is a distributed technology platform that incorporates predictive data analytics, machine learning (AI), and the innovative use of smart contracts to drive significant quality and operational improvements in clinical trials.

  • With the application of powerful and insightful data analytics functionality across administrative, operational and clinical functions, stakeholders can now identify, action and resolve the potential issues detected before they negatively impact the trial
  • Advanced workflow management, including “closing the loop” functionality and a blockchain based immutable audit-trail
  • CTi has created an eco-system that fosters collaboration across the entire pharmaceutical industry while addressing the privacy and security concerns of all stakeholders
  • A “first of it’s kind” perpetually increasing library of clinical data analytics that facilitates the sharing of “lessons learned” across corporate boundaries without any compromise of sensitive data

Pharmaceutical companies can now gain deep insight into the operational and clinical aspects of their trials without the necessity of major investment into backend technical infrastructure or data science expertise

A full history of clinical trial key metrics are stored immutably on CTi’s decentralised ledger, where they are used by CTi’s App’s to power bespoke predictive analytics algorithms in on-going trials on the platform.

As CTi is a fully integrated platform that provides end-to-end auditable workflow management & oversight in trials, all actions, including preventative and corrective actions (CAPA), are recorded on the CTi blockchain on an on-going basis.

This represents the creation of a clinical eco-system that enables interoperability and safe storage of all clinical trial data views, while also addressing the privacy and security concerns of all stakeholders.

CTi Applications

The CTi eco-system consists of seven separate Apps which each provide invaluable key insights and immense benefit to stakeholders such as Clinical Project Managers & Physicians, Clinical Data Managers, Pharmacovigilance staff and Site Monitors.

CTi-OEM Application

Operational Excellence

Provides intuitive operational oversight of clinical trials for clinical project managers, clinical data managers and remote staff, allowing instream decision-making on what actions are required to ensure a successful project.

The CTi-CDV Application

Clinical Data Visualisations

Provides enhanced clinical data review through the use of data visualisations to identify issues that may impact on the trial integrity and safety of the patient e.g. data quality issues, disease exacerbation. Furthermore, CTi-CDV will facilitate flagging of these issues, and corrective actions to be recorded and monitored.

The CTi-PDA Application

Predictive Analytics

The CTi-PDA application will combine all operational and clinical data sources and use predictive modelling to forecast issues and events before they happen. The CTi-PDA application will reveal hidden correlations across all datasets thereby facilitating the pharmaceutical company to take pro-active action to address.

The CTi-RBM Application

Risk Based Monitoring

The CTi-RBM application will use current and historical data to predict specific risks, and thereby allow for tactical deployment of the pharmaceutical company’s data and site monitoring resources to take preventative action. This predictive risk based approach differs from current reactive approaches to risk and can significantly reduce site monitoring costs during a clinical trial.

The CTi-PRR Application

Patient Recruitment & Retention

The CTi-PRR application manages recruitment and retention of patients for clinical trials by providing a portal for patient identification and producing a series of alerts (based on predictive analytics) that flag when a patient is at risk of withdrawing from the study.

The CTi-SIM Application

Site Investigators

The CTi-SIM application manages the recruitment of investigators (physicians) to run clinical trials,and manages token payment compensation by the pharmaceutical company to investigators, triggered by data-driven milestones and KPIs, defined on the CTi platform.

The CTi-VMM Application

Vendor Management

CTi-VMM provides oversight on data quality and manages token payment compensation by the pharmaceutical company to the third party vendors, triggered automatically by data-driven milestones and KPIs, defined on the CTi platform.
