12/13/2017 - ARO - eClinical Solutions

Academic Research Organizations and their employees are key components of the continued success of all pharmaceutical research. These organizations, mostly non-profit, provide the therapeutic expertise, Investigational Product (IP) knowledge, and patient access that is mandatory for a successful clinical trial. While their contributions are vast, little attention has been focused on meeting the specialized eClinical solutions needs of this market. Some AROs, with little funding build solutions internally and struggle because of the ongoing resources required to build/support these solutions. Others will try and adopt solutions targeted for the sponsor and CRO markets, frequently becoming frustrated trying to customize these solutions to meet their requirements, both functionally and financially.

At CISYS LifeSciences, we have a dedicated team focused on meeting the solution requirements of AROs. Whether your need is to enhance/support an existing solution, develop a new solution or configure one of our Sequence Platform modules to meet your requirements, CISYS Life Sciences has the expertise and solutions to meet the specific of the ARO market.

11/15/17 Clinical Adjudication - Two Major Contributors to Increased Costs and Timelines

Today, clinical event/endpoint adjudication has become a key element of post approval safety and Phase II/III clinical trials. As adjudication requirements have increased so has the need for variations in specialized review and committee workflow. Today sponsors and CROs have two choices, one is to implement work arounds in their current electronic solution or switch to a paper process. Both options increase the risks, costs and timelines associated with adjudication. As the number of studies and post approval products requiring adjudication has increased so has the number of clinical events that need to be considered for adjudication. Most adjudication solutions today do not have an internal SMQ process that automatically routes events through the appropriate committee review process, instead they depend on manual intervention that can be inconsistent, inaccurate and time consuming. If you would like to hear more about an adjudication solution with configurable/flexible workflows and internal SMQ functionality contact CISYS LifeSciences ( or 919-840-1436 ext. 240) to schedule a time to discuss WebEAS and how it will increase productivity and decrease costs.

With the Perpetual License model, our customers average a 50% solution savings over 5 years and a 22% increase in coding efficiency.

· Legacy Study Transfer – If your organization is concerned about medical coding options due to the termination of dsNavigator, CISYS LifeSciences has additional services available for downloading, storing and transferring your legacy studies into WebCode.
