New conflict of interest solution for managing the review process will help meet National Institutes of Health (NIH) expectations

AUSTIN, Texas, March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- TOPAZ Technologies, a leading provider of medical research management software

for the Life Sciences industry, today announced the release of Conflict Disclosures software, its newest edition to the TOPAZ Enterprise Product Suite aimed at providing a mechanism for research administration to manage Conflicts of Interest (COI) at their institutions.

A rich Internet application developed to address the research administration needs of institutions, TOPAZ Technologies' Conflict Disclosures software automates COI management and addresses 42CFR Part 50 Subpart F and 45CFR Part 94 compliance requirements.

Equipped with many of the same features as TOPAZ Enterprise Protocol modules, it is enhanced with functionality to allow institutions to manage the conflict of interest review process within a single application.  Enabling 24/7 remote, online access from across the globe, TOPAZ Technologies' conflict of interest solution creates a collaborative work environment for the research administration, the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and other institutional committees or personnel responsible for COI management.

Created with the flexibility to integrate with the variety of institutional review mechanisms for conflict of interest disclosure, the Conflict Disclosures software consists of three components: Disclosures, Meetings and Reviews.  Features of the conflict of interest solution include: customizable disclosure form builder with version compare; automated alerts for COI management, monitoring and tracking; management plan selection, role-based access control; meeting agenda scheduler and electronic filing of meeting minutes; electronic disclosure submission, review, approval and storage; amendment and renewal submission tracking; on-demand reporting capabilities; and comprehensive audit trails.

"TOPAZ Technologies continues to take a proactive approach to helping research institutions further streamline operations by providing rich Internet applications designed to increase efficiency, improve operational insight and reduce compliance risks," said J. Patrick Guider, Jr., president and chief executive officer of TOPAZ Technologies. "Our new Conflict Disclosures software does exactly that, enabling institutions to automate their conflict of interest review process, significantly simplifying the steps involved, and ultimately, reducing the risk of oversights."
