As part of good clinical practice (GCP), life sciences teams must develop trial master files (TMFs) and maintain the documents well after the product launch window. Historically, such files were comprised largely of paper-based documents. According to a new study by Cutting Edge Information, however, surveyed global teams report that each of their current TMFs is 54% electronic-based. And that portion is expected to increase to 88% by 2020.
Arxspan, a cloud-based solutions provider based in Massachusetts, has entered into an agreement with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard for use of its ArxLab cloud-based suite of biological and chemical discovery information management tools. The partnership will support the institute’s efforts to electronically manage and share both biological and chemical research information internally and with external collaborators. The ArxLab suite of tools will be used for managing the institute’s electronic laboratory notebook, compound and assay registration, scientific analysis and search, biological visualization, and inventory management functions.
Veeva Systems, a cloud-based software provider for the global life sciences industry, has launched its first fully integrated clinical trials study startup solution, Veeva Vault Study StartUp, which will enable life sciences organizations to manage both the content and the activities associated with activating sites for clinical trials. The solution will accelerate time to first patient enrollment, automate manual processes and deliver interoperability with the electronic trial master file (eTMF) for a single source of all trial-related content.
Veeva Systems, a cloud-based software provider for the global life sciences industry, has launched Veeva Vault RIM, a next-generation regulatory information management (RIM) suite. Vault RIM unites submission documents, published dossiers, product registrations and health authority interactions into a single authoritative source for all regulatory information. The convergence of RIM capabilities in Veeva Vault’s regulatory product suite will align disconnected regulatory processes worldwide, dramatically improving life sciences companies’ speed, agility and compliance.
Exostar, a cloud-based solutions company, has partnered with Veeva Systems, a cloud-based software provider for the global life sciences industry. Veeva Vault, a content management platform and suite of applications that reduces IT complexity and increases business agility, now can be accessed through Exostar’s Life Sciences Identity Hub. The connection enables life sciences organizations and their partners to prepare, exchange and store clinical trials documentation with the ease and security of a single credential.
