USE CASE: Service Provisioning

Global CRO

Objective: Increase the efficiency of clinical trial execution. Advance the company ahead of industry peers through improved on-time project completion rate. Deliver data-driven insights to support company interactions with investigators and regulators and take targeted actions. Get complete, real-time visibility over all projects in one place for planning and management, significantly increase productivity, and reduce time to business value.

Challenge

Cross-functional team had multiple, non-integrated process and data tracking methods.

There was no common mechanism to ensure that the business processes and systems were accurately and efficiently capturing the data to meet the requirements of the legislation.

Needed to enforce standard workflows, streamline its processes, manage exceptions and enforce compliance.

Highly manual processes to share oversight findings with personnel running the clinical trial.

Limited options to move to the world of centralized and risk-based oversight.

Existing system design did not align to increased, centralized and remote oversight business requirements.

Existing platform did not integrate easily with other data sources.

Existing solution could not deliver the expected web capabilities and platform support desired now, and into the future.

Analytics did not exist to identify areas where centralized oversight can substitute for onsite visits.
