Comprehend Systems Named A Gartner Cool Vendor In Life Sciences

Leading IT Analyst Firm Recognizes Comprehend Systems as Innovative, Impactful and Intriguing Life Sciences Company

PALO ALTO, CALIF. – May 9, 2013 – Comprehend Systems was named one of only five Gartner “Cool Vendors in Life Sciences, May 2013.” Compiled by leading Gartner analysts including Steven Lefebure, Dale Hagemeyer and Michael Shanler, the report features vendors bringing unique solutions to the life science industry with leading tools for aggregating and delivering value from data.

Since 2010, Comprehend Systems has been replacing the clunky and expensive data warehouses, ETL tools, BI tools and teams of programmers traditionally required for sponsors and contract research organizations (CROs) to make sense of their clinical data. With Comprehend Clinical™, researchers can quickly start extracting real value from their previous investments in electronic data capture (EDC), clinical data management (CTMS) and other systems by providing the real-time data insights and dashboards they need to make critical decisions about their trials.

“We believe Gartner understands that one of the biggest challenges facing life sciences leaders today is quickly achieving performance improvements based on the volumes of existing data that are currently siloed away in various systems,” said Rick Morrison, CEO of Comprehend Systems. “We’re solving this expensive and time-consuming problem for sponsors and CROs with a solution that enables true clinical data insights through the cloud – without involving programmers, large procurement cycles or slow integration processes.”

Comprehend most recently announced a first-of-its-kind approach to accessing data insights with the launch of the online signup of Comprehend Clinical. By simply visiting the Comprehend website and creating an account, executives, data managers, study managers, clinical operations, biostatisticians, monitors and others can quickly start gaining critical insights across all of their clinical and operational data. Sponsors and CROs can begin using Comprehend Clinical against a single study within days. They can also easily scale up to use additional features of Comprehend, like full cross-trial and cross-system, or support for other commercial or proprietary data systems.
