Empowering Strategic and Informed Clinical IT Decisions
Our client is an academic clinical research organization (CRO) that offers services across the entire clinical research spectrum, from study conception to design, execution, data analysis, and the dissemination of results.
IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT CLINICAL DATA AND TRIAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Our client has been leveraging its legacy clinical data and trial management systems for many years. The CRO had become frustrated with the clinical data management system's lack of functionality, specifically the inability to produce custom metrics and reports quickly. By the time reports could be pulled, the data was often outdated.
The clinical data management system had also ceased to be its vendor's flagship data management solution, not to mention that newer systems on the market appeared to be more advanced.
Furthermore, our client was using a version of its clinical trial management system that was no longer supported and considered to be significantly behind newer releases and other CTMS solutions on the market. Since the company's system was highly customized, patching and upgrading had been cost prohibitive.
In addition to the challenges our client had experienced with these systems, they were also not integrated. This required the organization to manually enter data in both systems, and it was often the same data.
