IntraLinks Announces Adobe-based Paperless Solution for Clinical Trial Process

Published on: 

IntraLinks, a provider of critical information exchange solutions, announced a strategic partnership with Adobe Systems Inc., to develop automated solutions addressing cross-organization data capture and submission based-business processes within the life sciences industry. Specifically, the joint solution is aimed to improve workflow during the site recruitment and study start-up phases of a clinical trial.

Once an electronic form is created using Adobe’s LiveCycle Enterprise Suite (ES), IntraLinks' validated platform manages the external workflow to organize, distribute, collect, and track e-forms across the firewall with email notifications and a "one-click to submit" process. LiveCycle ES completes the process by automatically retrieving the completed forms from IntraLinks and routing them through an internal review and approval process.

“Building on Adobe's LiveCycle ES, IntraLinks will leverage its secure and auditable information exchange platform to create a truly paperless solution for the clinical trials process," said Alison Shurell, vice president, IntraLinks, said in a press release. "This new platform replaces inefficient and non-secure methods of sharing sensitive clinical trial documents such as email, fax and courier."


"Life sciences professionals who already depend on Adobe's LiveCycle ES for data capture and submission based processes will now have a comprehensive solution for document-centric workflows," said Melonie Warfel, Director Worldwide Standards & Life Sciences for Adobe Systems Inc. "Together, Adobe and IntraLinks will work to make clinical trial management an efficient, paper-free process." IntraLinks provides on-demand solutions for businesses in various industries to securely collaborate, communicate and exchange critical information inside and outside the enterprise.
