ClinPlus® Coding Earns UMC Certification
New York, NY/Bound Brook, NJ – June 15, 2012 – DZS Software Solutions (DZS), a provider of software products that support several aspects in the performance of clinical trials, today announced achievement of certification by the Uppsala Monitoring Centre (UMC) for their ClinPlus Coding product. The UMC Certification Program ensures that software vendors are providing tools that will give users full value and benefit of their WHO Drug Dictionary subscription. The WHO Drug Dictionaries are the world’s most comprehensive source of medicinal product information. They are used by pharmaceutical companies, clinical research organizations and drug regulatory authorities to identify drug names, active ingredients and therapeutic use, in the course of clinical trials and drug safety surveillance.
The current version of ClinPlus Coding was engineered for optimal performance with the WHO Drug Enhanced Dictionary with certification as a goal. The ClinPlus Coding software has past all test cases in the rigorous certification process demonstrating the ability to take full advantage of the ever evolving WHO Drug Dictionaries. The UMC certification also provides software developers with free training and a software development kit, including documentation and examples
“We were very impressed with the ClinPlus Coding system’s performance and features as the system was being put through the rigorous certification process. This system clearly demonstrated an excellent ability to work with the WHO Drug dictionaries in an efficient and intuitive manner.” – Ola Strandberg, Vendor Liaison Officer
“Though this certification is certainly significant for us, it is more important to our customers in that they can be confident that the coding software they rely on works in harmony with the dictionaries they use”, said Greg Wagner, ClinPlus Coding Product Manager at DZS.
