The collaboration between Quorum Review IRB and Oracle goBalto removes the need to send IRB submission documents manually.

The collaboration enables Quorum to push approval documents into Oracle goBalto’s Activate, explained Scott Smith, director of marketing at Quorum Review IRB. 

goBalto’s flagship product, Activate, is a study startup document and activity workflow solution that helps sponsors and contract research organizations (CROs) eliminate what it calls the three evil “e’s”: email, Excel, and e-rooms, according to the company, which was acquired by Oracle last year​.

Through the new collaboration, study teams will benefit from “point-and-click package submission and seamless data transfers,” ​Smith told us.

The integration also will use alerts to prevent errors and premature submissions. “Without this benefit, errors and submissions omissions become a time waster,”​ added Smith.

Oracle Health Sciences General Manager Steve Rosenberg said in a statement, “Automation has become critical for reducing the costs and complexities of clinical trials and this new level of integration eliminates time-consuming processes and improves operational efficiencies by addressing an entrenched bottleneck in the initiation process.”
