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.”
