See how 1-2 forms per month increased to 45+ forms per month.
A leading CNS trial systems provider with expertise in data analysis originally focused on analyzing data related to treatments for central nervous system disorders.
The company analyzed existing data provided by clinicians, who gathered the data using paper forms. Because different trials gather different sets of data, each trial required a different assessment form for the clinicians. The challenge was that using paper forms for gathering data introduced room for human error and was not a scalable model.
The company needed a solution that could scale, but with an internal engineering team of only two people, it did not have the resources to create such a solution.
GlobalLogic partnered with this client on three key products.
First, GlobalLogic designed and developed a pioneering electronic source data collection (EDC) system based on tablets, assuming exclusive responsibility for the solution, piloting the application and bringing it through the production stage.
The solution was designed to transform the old-fashioned paper forms into digital, logical content that does automatic calculations and automates data collection to reduce the potential for human error in data entry.
Second, GlobalLogic developed a proprietary form creation application that enabled non-technical people such as business analysts to create new forms out of modular components.
The solutions were highly successful, and a larger conglomerate purchased GlobalLogic’s original client to access GlobalLogic’s solution.
The conglomerate then tapped GlobalLogic to create a third product, a web portal for clinical study sites to collect, store, analyze, and share data.
All of these products developed by GlobalLogic worked together. The platform included the clinician tablet-based application, the form development and management application for non-programmers, and the web portal for gathering and analyzing data from clinical trials.
GlobalLogic has continued to work with the client for more than a decade.
Clinical trial professionals quickly adopted the platform because of its ease of use and adaptive workflow. Implementing a platform approach enabled the client to significantly improve data accuracy, security, and reliability.
As a result, the client’s performance improved by at least 100 times.
The platform also reduced site burden, where the central review of site-based assessments is part of the study process. Sites no longer have to manually upload visit components for review, as they are immediately available once a site submits the assessment via tablet.
The client increased its service offerings to include eSource data capture for sites, and also improved its capacity to deliver high-quality central review services.
