Phoenix, AZ  – Statistics & Data Corporation (SDC), a global leader in life sciences biometrics services and technology solutions, announces a strategic decision to enhance focus and efficiency by transitioning its ophthalmic biometric division to its partner Ora, Inc. Since 2005, SDC’s partnership and common ownership with Ora has provided best-in-class clinical trial services in the field of ophthalmology, while allowing SDC to expand its expertise and offerings in other therapeutic areas and technology. During this time, SDC has developed a reputation as an industry leader in providing biometrics services and the deployment of innovative/integrated technologies across the industry.

SDC’s tech-enabled service offering brings to market an AI/ML enabled clinical ecosystem to unify disparate technologies into a single data lake (SDC DataHub™) and a single point of access reporting platform (SDC Insights™), paired with a cost effective mobile ePRO/eCOA Solution (SDC Capture™). This solution gives clients the flexibility they have been looking for to choose the right fit technologies for their clinical trial and not being forced into one eClinical Platform.  SDC’s tech-enabled service offerings bring forward more options than ever to right size your trial; eSource, eConsent, ePRO,  safety processing, custom workflows, integrated IRT and EDC options, and giving our clients solutions to strengthen oversight and reduce timelines.

SDC’s 18+ years of service expertise give clients, ready to use, fully delivered solutions with the biometrics expertise (Biostatistics, Data Management, IRT, Safety Reporting) necessary to see a trial/program through to completion.

Dr. Richard Abelson, CEO of SDC commented “The transition of our ophthalmic biometric division signifies our unwavering dedication to excellence and innovation in clinical research services and technology solutions.
