Tuesday, May 12, 2009 / Morrisville, NC — Clinipace, a growing digital clinical research organization, announces that Small Bone Innovations (SBi) has awarded four new projects to the company during the first quarter of 2009. These projects primarily include electronic data capture (EDC) and data management services.

SBi offers a broad, clinically proven portfolio of products and technologies to treat trauma and diseases in small bones and joints and has recently acquired the S.T.A.R. total ankle replacement system.

“In selecting Clinipace, we found a partner who understands the culture and financial needs of a growing medical device firm. We share a common vision for more project visibility and appreciate their approach to service delivery,” said James O’Connor Vice President, Worldwide Regulatory, Quality and Clinical Affairs, Surgeons Ethics and Compliance at SBi.

Having complete real-time visibility into study-level information is critical to our success,” continued O’Connor.
