NextDocs Announces Trial Exchange, Clinical Portal Designed for Clinical Trial Sites and Integrated with eTMF

September 17, 2012

Company News Release

NextDocs Corporation, a provider of Microsoft SharePoint-based compliance solutions for the life sciences industry, announced the launch of Trial Exchange, its newest product available on the NextDocs platform. Trial Exchange provides a consumer-style interface for investigators and site staff to access and contribute essential documents for clinical trials. As documents are uploaded through Trial Exchange, the documents enter workflows within the existing NextDocs eTMF module.

“NextDocs’ clinical product line is focused on delivering new innovations to the market. eTMF addressed the internal and partner collaboration challenges and now, with Trial Exchange, we’re enabling trial site staff to participate directly in the process,” explained Matt Walz, CTO at NextDocs. “Trial Exchange does not require training. It has a user experience that feels very consumer, but on the back-end, it is enterprise software and integrates seamlessly with eTMF and other clinical systems.”

Trial Exchange aims to address the challenges that life sciences companies face in managing clinical documents. It hopes to allow trial site staff to contribute documents to an established eTMF work stream, receive and complete tasks generated by the sponsor, view document statuses, and retrieve documents on demand. Trial Exchange is designed to reduce the time and cost of trial management, improve collaboration with investigators, and strengthen document security and compliance.

This new clinical portal allows life sciences companies to:

  • Apply established quality and document management processes to clinical site documents to enhance the site start-up process
  • Gain visibility into document statuses and due dates; and assign tasks to ensure documents are completed properly and on schedule
  • Efficient distribution of documents and alerts to clinical sites
  • Decrease courier and shipping costs by allowing sites upload doucments directly to the Trial Exchange interface.
  • Strengthen document security and access for clinical sites
  • Final site documents move directly to the eTMF through workflow reviews and approvals, eliminating the manual process for submitting documents to th eTMF.
  • Improve collaboration and relationships with trial site staff

Trial Exchange provides a streamlined interface for investigators that clinical site staff can use with little to no training. Unlike many existing clinical portals, it plugs directly into the eTMF without additional routing, thus applying the Sponsor/CRO quality and document management processes to clincial site documents.
