Emerging biotechs use modern clinical data management to accelerate study builds and easily adapt to change
BARCELONA, Spain, Oct. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) today announced that the number of biotechs using Veeva Vault CDMS to run faster, more effective oncology trials more than doubled over the last year. Vault CDMS, a modern cloud application suite designed to manage clinical data for today's study builds, delivers the agility and efficiency needed to handle the demands of highly complex studies.
Oncology trials are difficult to execute and demonstrate higher rates of amendment than other studies. To address these challenges, biotechs need flexible and agile systems that enable clinical teams to adapt based on trial outcomes. Traditional EDC systems have proven to be slow to configure and hard to adapt, taking an average of 30 days to implement a study amendment.1
With Vault CDMS, data managers can make mid-study amendments without data migration or downtime. This ensures timely changes are implemented, keeps studies on track, and speeds execution. Study teams are also able to perform interactive design review and apply necessary changes in real-time.
"Adaptive trials allow for planned modifications to collect subject data nimbly and to facilitate strategic changes with a study," said Toby Odenheim, director, technology and governance at Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy (PICI). "Veeva Vault CDMS enables us to make real-time changes to enroll new patients, drive greater therapeutic efficacy, and operate more cost-effectively."
"Data managers feel the need for speed with every study amendment. Paired with significant execution challenges such as protocol deviations, local labs, and RECIST, and it is clear the industry needs a new toolset," said Richard Young, vice president, strategy, Veeva Vault CDMS. "By providing the flexibility to adopt changes fast, biotechs can drive greater focus on patient safety and accelerate the development of life-changing cancer treatments."
Over 40% of biotechs with new studies awarded to Veeva this year are running oncology trials. These companies are adopting Vault CDMS to benefit from an easy-to-use system that doesn't require custom functions. Vault CDMS supports complex treatment cycles, cohorts, and branching with simple rules and dynamics, allowing designers to build studies faster.
