March 11, 2015 | The Alliance for Clinical Research Excellence and Safety—ACRES—has announced a collaboration with HealthCarePoint, a healthcare and clinical research networking technology provider and one of ACRES’ strategic allies, to launch ACRES BlueCloud, an integration platform for parties across the global clinical research enterprise.
Through a multi-million dollar technologies and services pledge from HealthCarePoint, the first phase of implementation of ACRES BlueCloud will allow sponsors, contract research organizations (CROs), regulatory agencies, funding agencies, and institutional review boards (IRBs) to access millions of verifiable professional experience and training credentials.

Al O. Pacino, President and Co-founder of HealthCarePoint, and ACRES’ Vice President for Collaborative Network Development, explains that clinical research sites typically lack the resources to acquire the needed technology that would facilitate information sharing. In the spirit of collaboration, HealthCarePoint is offering ACRES BlueCloud for free to ACRES’ allies.
