TIBCO Spotfire Joins CDISC Healthcare Link Interoperability Network and Demonstrates Analytics Platform at DIA Annual Meeting

WASHINGTON – DIA Annual Meeting


16 June, 2010


TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that it has joined the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) Healthcare Link Interoperability Network (HLIN) and will demonstrate the TIBCO Spotfire in-memory, predictive analytics platform in a multi-vendor interoperability showcase in CDISC's booth at the 46th Drug Information Association (DIA) Annual Meeting this week in Washington, D.C. TIBCO Spotfire will demonstrate how new insights and better medical outcomes can be achieved through interoperability between clinical and healthcare data sources. To see the demo, visit CDISC's booth at #821.

In the eSource demonstration scenario TIBCO Spotfire® Clinical (see press release: TIBCO Introduces Spotfire® Clinical to Improve Clinical Trials and Accelerate Drug Development, June 16, 2010) will serve as an independent analysis tool that might be used by a regulatory body to analyze and compare data from a CRF (Case Report Form) in the sponsor's Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system, for example, against the electronic source data generated by an Electronic Health Record (EHR) and maintained at the investigator site. In this scenario, TIBCO Spotfire will be leveraged to detect discrepancies in clinical data, as well as operational metadata that could suggest fraud or other underlying problems with the ongoing study. Through the use of Web services, the scenario also demonstrates how TIBCO Spotfire can aggregate disparate data sources, including CDISC Operational Data Model (ODM) for example, stored in both the healthcare and clinical data systems, and then merge them into the TIBCO Spotfire platform to perform in-depth visualization analysis.

"CDISC is delighted to welcome TIBCO Spotfire to the Healthcare Link Interoperability Network," said Landen Bain, liaison to healthcare at CDISC. "Evaluating data derived from two domains as distinct as healthcare and clinical research would be impossible without a flexible visualization platform. At DIA this week, Spotfire will demonstrate that Healthcare Link provides a standards-based foundation from which users can gain the necessary context and develop new insights into data that are critical to accelerating medical breakthroughs and ultimately deliver better drugs to market. Combining clinical and operational data into a single view is a powerful demonstration of standards-driven innovation."

"TIBCO Spotfire has long been a supporter of CDISC and has worked to ensure support for its standards within our analytics platform," said Ben McGraw, director of life science industry solutions for Spotfire, TIBCO Software Inc. "Like CDISC, we believe that supporting interoperability is fundamental to improving medical research. In fact, TIBCO Spotfire Clinical is the only vendor-agnostic solution of its kind to provide an enterprise-level view of data from multiple systems, providing key support to clinicians as they seek to identify trends that will reveal key risk factors or opportunities that can shorten development cycles."

With an outstanding track record of providing innovative analytics and visualization capabilities to the world's leading life sciences companies, including nine of the top 10 global pharmaceutical and biotech companies, TIBCO Spotfire helps customers achieve shorter development cycles and faster approvals of new medications and devices.
