University of Michigan Health System Selects eThority

Originally published February 2, 2010

eThority, a provider of user-obvious enterprise performance and productivity solutions, recently announced that the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS), one of the country’s premier academic medical centers, has selected eThority’s Clinical Trials eXtension for budgeting, billing, reporting and analysis for all clinical trials activity.

“eThority’s Clinical Trials software will help our investigators create more timely and more accurate budgets for clinical studies, as well as build comprehensive billing calendars to ensure items and services are appropriately billed,” said Samuel M. Silver, M.D., Ph.D., the Assistant Dean for Research and a professor in the Department of Internal Medicine, who is also the project lead.

eThority’s Clinical Trials functionality integrates seamlessly with its core business intelligence platform, eThority Enterprise, to deliver an end-to-end data management and analysis solution. Clinical Trials empowers study coordinators and principal investigators to quickly and accurately build trial budgets in order to ensure effective negotiations with sponsors. In addition, the application helps users develop robust billing calendars, making it easier to monitor research billing.

“We chose eThority Clinical Trials for its ease of use and the company’s successful track record with other projects at UMHS,” said Silver. “Our investigative teams range from large groups of experienced researchers with several support staff, to individual junior investigators. That means we need an application that individuals with varying levels of administrative proficiency can use,” he explained.

“We are pleased that UMHS has elected to expand on the relationship both organizations have benefited from over the past five years,” said Mike Psenka, CEO of eThority.  “Due to the highly complex nature of an academic health care institution, accurately and quickly budgeting for clinical trials and maintaining accurate and appropriate billing practices is critically important. We’re thrilled about the opportunity to help UMHS continue its thought leadership in clinical research administration.”
