Paragon and NextDocs Introduce Clinical Optimization Solutions Targeting Life Sciences Firms

Company News Release

Paragon Solutions, a business consulting and information technology services firm, announced the launch of solutions to optimize clinical operations incorporating the NextDocs product suite. The clinical solutions combine the capabilities of the two partners to deploy low-risk, accelerated solutions for life sciences built on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server.

“With the growing adoption of SharePoint within Life Sciences organizations, companies are looking for solution accelerators that leverage enterprise platforms to optimize the end-to-end drug development process,” said Ravi Shankar, vice president of Paragon’s Life Sciences practice. “NextDocs extends SharePoint with capabilities that complement our Clinical Optimization solution strategy,” he said.

The solutions leverage a strategic partnership formed by the companies in September 2009. One of the solutions the companies are introducing as part of the Clinical Optimization Solution portfolio is an integrated investigator portal. The portal is designed to deliver a collaborative environment that enables clinical sponsors and investigators to: negotiate contracts; define and communicating protocols; support site monitoring; manage grants; work with partners; and improve oversight and planning.
