eClinicalOS™ (eCOS)

By Merge eClinical

eClinicalOS™ (eCOS) from Merge eClinical is a single, scalable cloud-based platform that lets clinical research professionals design, launch and manage studies with more control, convenience and confidence than ever before. With headquarters in Research Triangle Park, N.C., and offices around the globe, Merge eClinical serves researchers in all industry categories: pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, CROs and academic institutions. Through active sites in 80-plus countries, more than 50,000 clinical research professionals in small and large organizations have entrusted their data and study management needs to our flagship product, eCOS.

eCOS is the fastest-growing software platform in the sector. Eight of the top ten CROs and eight of the top ten pharmaceutical companies in the world use eCOS, and at least one new study using eCOS is deployed every day. With a unique pay-as-you-go model that lets you choose - and pay for - only the features you actually need and use, eCOS allows you to scale up or down to suit a study's precise requirements. No upfront licensing fees are required, and focused training allows customers to manage studies independently, if they choose.

You can connect to eCOS from virtually any browser or iOS-enabled device for access to virtually all your study data. The platform offers a smart, consistent and intuitive interface for every phase of the study process, from design, randomisation and inventory control to reporting, endpoint adjudication and archiving results. eCOS is so efficient and easy to learn, in fact, that many studies go live within ten days of the project's start.
