Bio-Technologies is established.

In 2009, medical imaging provider, Bio-Technologies changes its name to Bioclinica.

ERT launches its first remote data collection technology.

ERT’s Cardiac Safety division released its first Holter monitor for continuous ECG collection for outside-of-clinic monitoring. In 2008, the company released its first home spirometer, and in 2015, its first eDiary.

Through this acquisition, ERT entered the eCOA business. In 2015, ERT acquired PHT Corporation, the leading innovator of eDiaries for clinical studies.


Bioclinica merges with CoreLab.

This merger brought together two of the most experienced and trusted authorities in medical imaging management for clinical trials and created a new standard in imaging core lab services, cardiovascular safety monitoring and eClinical trial management solutions.

Trial Enablement

Bioclinica merges with CCBR-Synarc

The two industry leaders merged their capabilities in medical imaging, patient recruitment, drug-development technology/consulting, cardiac safety and central-laboratory analysis, broadening the span of therapeutic areas they serve.

Hybrid Trial

ERT launches multiple technologies for DCTs and hybrid clinical trials.

Although already providing solutions for outside-of-clinic data collection for more than 15 years, the increased adoption of these technologies due to the Covid-19 pandemic continues to bring attention to the company’s technologies for eCOA, cardiac safety, respiratory testing, wearable devices and medical imaging – in addition to site-based solutions.
