“We recognized the value an innovative technology solution could have in knocking down hurdles that slow progress during the study start-up phase, where improvements can have a significant impact on overall trial results,” said Rachel Stahler, CIO, inVentiv Health. “inVentiv identified Veeva as a best-of-breed platform that can maximize efficiencies and accelerate the delivery of much needed drugs to patients.”

Vault Study Startup will help inVentiv streamline complex activities related to site activation, including ethics committee and Ministry of Health submissions and approvals, document distribution and tracking, and site contract transactional activities. Now inVentiv can improve the efficiency of trial processes by managing documents, data, and study start-up activities on a single cloud platform, as well as provide stakeholders easy access to the same, up-to-date clinical information for improved collaboration. In addition, seamless interoperability between Vault Study Startup and Vault eTMF ensures that documents and data are available in both applications.

The current clinical operations environment is highly complex and often includes upwards of 20 disparate systems to manage trials – from electronic data capture (EDC) systems and study start-up applications to clinical trial management systems (CTMS) and electronic trial master files (eTMF). Legacy technologies limit efficiency, visibility, and collaboration between sponsors, investigator sites, and CROs. In fact, in a recent industry-wide survey, nearly half (49%) of all respondents cited integration between their eTMF and CTMS applications as a key, unmet need.1

Kristen Jackson, senior director, Essential Document Collection and Submissions, Site Centricity Unit, inVentiv, will be a speaker at the 2016 Veeva Global R&D Design Summit in Philadelphia on October 18 and will discuss these challenges and the benefits of Vault Study Startup.
