“The industry can finally move away from the complex patchwork of systems and integrations that limit the ability to leverage the range of clinical data available throughout the course of a trial,” said Henry Levy, general manager of Veeva Vault CDMS in a press release.
Vault CDMS combines Veeva’s medical information coder Vault Coder and Vault EDC. In late 2019, it will include Vault Data Workbench, which, according to the company, collates all trial data into a “consistently formatted data lake” for integrated cleaning, reporting, and export.
Additionally, open APIs are available for a variety of other data sources such as ePRO, medical imaging, labs, and randomization.
Earlier this year, Veeva Systems published its Unified Clinical Operations Survey. Year after year, the survey has garnered increased participation, which Jim Reilly, vice president, clinical strategy, Veeva Systems, said exemplifies an increasing focus on addressing “broken” clinical technology.
The main challenge of siloed applications and processes is integrating multiple applications, according to three-quarters of the respondents. This, followed by reporting across multiple applications (57%) and managing content and data across applications (56%).
Also earlier this year, Veeva founded a new industry standards group Align Clinical CRO in collaboration with several contract research organizations (CROs), including ICON, Medpace, Syneos Health, PPD, PRA Health Sciences, and UBC.
The members will create the standards with input from the industry. The first to be released will be an Operational Data Exchange standard designed to facilitate information sharing between sponsors and CROs.
