Company's Continuous Quality Solution (CQS) Helps ClinOps Continuously Improve Quality, Hit Milestones and Speed Delivery of a Portfolio of Clinical Trials

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With 80% of all clinical trials regularly missing milestones, according to a recent major study, no one doubts the need for solutions that will remove cost and delays, yet without sacrificing safety or accuracy. Comprehend Systems, Inc., through its Continuous Quality Solution (CQS) for ClinOps, has developed an answer.

"Life sciences companies are struggling to meet milestones on-time with outdated tools to oversee clinical trials," said Rick Morrison, CEO of Comprehend. "Some studies involve up to 1,000 research sites and many thousands of patients--yet most Clinical Research Associates and Study Managers still use spreadsheets to track studies. Spreadsheets simply cannot keep up with the data aggregation and insight needed to minimize risk and cost."

Comprehend's Continuous Quality Solution for ClinOps is a single, prescriptive solution with powerful data aggregation, monitoring, forecasting, collaboration and analytics capabilities to actively manage enrollment funnels, patient compliance, data quality and site productivity across systems, studies and sites. The cloud-based solution's approach is particularly effective for enabling Clinical Research Organization (CRO) oversight, centralized monitoring and study quality metrics initiatives.

CQS goes beyond traditional site monitoring, giving ClinOps teams and executives portfolio monitoring on their key performance and risk indicators to significantly lower the cost, time and risk to deliver milestones on-time. With CQS, executives, Study Managers, Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) and CROs can identify operational and data quality risks while proactively course correcting via early warning alerts on key leading indicators. Furthermore, from one centralized location, team members can share analytics, assign action items and track outcomes.

"Before Comprehend, we didn't have a way of easily assessing or aggregating our clinical trial due to limitations of the Electronic Data Collection platform and data being scattered across systems. Not having this visibility into our data was limiting our ability to hit our trial milestones," stated Barry Templin, VP of Technology, Therapy and Clinical for CardioKinetix. "With Comprehend, we can now quickly generate meaningful visualizations, collaborate in real-time, and identify gaps to prioritize our work."

Proven at many of the largest and most progressives life science companies, including 3 of the top 8 industry leaders, Comprehend's CQS allows ClinOps teams to manage every milestone-driving aspect of study performance in real-time, including:

  • Subject Enrollment: Act faster and focus on what matters throughout the entire enrollment funnel, from site activation to patients screened, enrolled and completed. Identify enrollment leakages in real-time to determine root causes and steps required for remediation.
  • Subject Compliance: Gain early detection, preventative action and team collaboration over potential patient safety issues, protocol deviation and missing endpoint data. Should greater than average deviations occur, the system notifies ClinOps staff so remediation steps can be initiated immediately.
  • Site Productivity: Detect and collaborate on site issues with data entry, query and issues resolution, as well as drug accountability. By collaborating with site workflow, teams reduce investigator burden, improve data quality and accelerate database lock.

"[Comprehend's Continuous Quality Solution] is driving major change as we roll it out to study teams and reeducate personnel," noted a VP of Clinical Operations at a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company.
