Wipro launches cloud-based portal to speed up clinical trials

Wipro Technologies announced a
secure cloud-based productized solution called “Wipro Clinical Collaboration
Portal”, to help its customer base of  Drug Development Owners (Sponsors),
CROs (Clinical Research Organizations), clinical sites and regulators to
significantly improve collaboration capabilities for Multi-region clinical trials.

 

Clinical trials for global studies require close
collaboration between partners and regulators across multiple regions to
conduct multi-region clinical trials effectively and rapidly. The portal
platform will reduce the clinical trial cycle time by 20-30 percent by speeding
up communication and document exchanges between all the stakeholders – the
sponsor organization, the staff of the CRO along with clinical site
coordinators and principal investigators. This Portal platform can be leveraged
as an enterprise level solution to increase efficiency and lower the cost of
clinical operations.

 

There
is an intensifying need in the market for a platform that can centralize
information, manage financing, facilitate accurate reporting, automatic
scheduling and provide the ease of patient recruitment.  This need for
increased collaboration in clinical trial operation elements, coupled with the
need to cater to different styles of recruiting patients, for different
therapeutic areas and identifying the best clinical sites that can perform
clinical studies, in adherence with the local regulations, has opened up a
potential market for a collaboration portal.

 

This Wipro portal has
the capability to better manage all the data required to conduct a clinical
trial that makes up the trial master file – which, in the existing clinical
trial model, is dominantly paper based in combination with shared folders
across geographies.

 

By
enforcing a common SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) across the groups which
are involved in clinical trials, the Wipro Clinical Collaboration portal helps
them to better adhere to regulatory frameworks such as Good Clinical Practice
(GCP) guidelines to avoid any oversight in the trial management process.

 

The
Wipro Clinical Collaboration cloud” based portal is supported by Wipro’s Rapid
Trial framework and very well integrated with leading market products for
Electronic Data Capture (EDC), Interactive Voice Recording System (IVRS),
Safety, electronic Trial Master File, document management systems and Clinical
Trial Management System (CTMS) solutions with a zero CAPEX in a highly
compliant, best-in-class system:, said R Srinivas Rao, vice president and
Vertical Head – Life Sciences Solutions, Wipro Technologies.
