ClinCapture is an open-source electronic data capture (EDC) system designed for data capture, query management, and reporting for clinical trials for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies. It is a fork of OpenClinica 3.1.3.[1][4]

Product history

On April 4, 2013 support services company Clinovo, Inc. made its EDC tool ClinCapture, a fork of OpenClinica 3.1.3, available to the open-source developer community[5], though the company had publicly referred to its software as open-source before it was made public to the general community.[6] Clinovo CTO Mark Desgrousilliers stated the "decision to fork was borne out of a desire to: a) promote a higher level of quality in the code base itself, b) to provide a higher level of transparency, and c) to generate a feature set that was geared towards the needs of a CRO."[4]

A few days later on the ninth of April, the first public open-source release of ClinCapture was made available to the community[1][2] under the GNU Lesser General Public License[3]. Later that summer, Clinovo began offering hosting services for the software.[7]

In March 2016, Clinovo (which began doing business as "ClinCapture" in 2016) announced that it had attracted its two-hundredth clinical study to the ClinCapture platform.[8]
