Preferred Qualifications

We at Oracle have set out on a mission to streamline the clinical trial study startup process. Oracle Health Sciences already offers customers the industry's most advanced cloud solution for clinical trial planning, data collection, trial execution and safety management. goBalto adds the leading industry cloud solution that significantly reduces clinical trial startup time. Together, Oracle and goBalto will provide the most complete end-to-end cloud platform dedicated to unifying action and accelerating results for the Life Sciences industry

Who we are...

goBalto is about re-imagining how study teams get clinical trials started and done. We're building the modern way to work together; a fast and versatile web application that connects sponsors, CROs, and sites with what’s going on, their shared priorities, and who owns each part of the effort.

We're software engineering, clinical operations, and thought leaders from companies like Amgen, Genentech, Quintiles, Roche, Johnson & Johnson, CERN, McKinsey & Company, Intuit, Cisco WebEx, E

  • TRADE, Peoplesoft and Sun Microsystems. We're backed by Aberdare Ventures, Singapore EDBI, Qualcomm Life Fund of Qualcomm Ventures, West Health Investment Fund, and an experienced team of advisors.

Why we're here...

The clinical study startup process is awful. Existing tools used to track site activation tasks and documents are manual, bloated, and complex. To take the next step in clinical study productivity, we need a fresh start. We created goBalto to help take that step; to improve the productivity of sponsors, CROs, and sites, to ultimately get medicines to those in need faster.
