Veeva launches cloud-based investigator portal
Veeva Systems has launched Veeva Vault Investigator Portal. As a companion product to Vault eTMF, it enables collection, sharing and tracking of all investigator content from a single platform. Veeva has designed its portal to speed study startup by simplifying the overall trial document management process and providing bi-directional, direct access to the eTMF.
Clinical trials require global reach, coordination and tracking across multiple stakeholders. Investigators and site personnel spend hours performing redundant tasks across multiple sponsors and systems. Most trial technologies hinder investigator efficiency. The portal orchestrates collaboration with site personnel for more efficient operations.
“The back and forth between investigators and the CRO or sponsor is causing delays in study startup. Most of these documents are still exchanged as paper, which is slow and adds expense. Sponsors and CROs must find ways to improve the efficiency while protecting the increasingly important site relationship,” said Michael Burton, director of clinical product strategy at Veeva.
The portal helps streamline trials and increase efficiency with features that lessen the workload for sponsors and investigators, including a single source for sponsors, CROs and investigator sites to submit and access documents, direct placement of site documents into the eTMF, two-way channel for exchanging documents, including safety alerts, site training videos and prioritized to-do lists, and associated documents packaged and pushed to sites.
