TRI releases OPRA Evolution 4

First – a little bit of background:

TRI are committed to ensuring OPRA is the most up to date, usable and fully featured RBM platform available. In order to achieve this we need to do three things.

1 – listen to our customers – what do you like? what do you want to improve? what do you want to add? what would you like to experiment with?

2 – listen to the market – what are the emerging trends? what are our prospects asking for? what are we learning from our webinars and conference appearances?

3 – develop like crazy – we aim to deliver a major evolution of OPRA every three months. We’ve over delivered on that since evolution 1 in October last year. All our SaaS customers automatically gain the enhancements delivered by each new evolution

Why do we use the term ‘evolution’?

Many companies use the terms release, or iteration with software but we feel that implies a level of ‘routine’ that we don’t believe in. Evolution is all about adapting to the environment you are immersed in and developing to the point of being able to take advantage of that environment. That is exactly what TRI is doing with OPRA – understanding the environment, looking at what needs are emerging and making sure OPRA is always ready to take advantage of them.



What are the key features of OPRA e4?

Data review

For each indicator at the Study or Site levels, users are now able to drill down to detailed data review listings, accessed from the Data Set Review tab below the indicator being reviewed:

Within the table, the data can be sorted, filtered and grouped for easier review. The entire data set can also be popped out into a new browser window to allow ‘side by side’ comparison of the data listings from one or more other sites. For each indicator the customer is able to configure which fields they would like to appear in the table.

Site Risk Overview

We have worked with our statisticians to do two things. Firstly to create a standardized 0-100 site risk score which will apply to all sites across all studies. This will give us the basis for upcoming work regarding ‘cross study, site level risk assessments. Secondly, we have standardized the risk color coding so that the risk indicators in the site risk overview match those in the individual indicators.


Management of Observations

This area of the system has been completely redesigned and the observations and associated actions are now displayed in user friendly tables that allow for grouping, sorting and filtering.  All observations for the selected study are displayed. Once an observation has been selected, all associated actions will be shown in the table immediately below. Again, these can be sorted, filtered and grouped as needed.

Observations and Actions on Expanded Indicator Screen

The same table design has been used in the expanded indicator screens to show the relevant Observations and Actions for the selected site. This screen can also be used to add new and edit existing Observation and Actions. The same high levels of table manipulation functionality exist as previously described:
