CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ePharmaSolutions announced the latest release of its integrated Clinical Trial Portal (CTP) and Electronic Trial Master File (eTMF) designed specifically for Contract Research Organizations.

ePharmaSolutions, a leading eClinical solutions provider has launched a significant upgrade to its award winning Clinical Trial Portal and eTMF that allows CROs and Sponsors to self-configure a study workspace and eTMF in less than ten minutes through the product called One Click Configuration.   Study teams can quickly set up a study by selecting the phase, indication, countries, and a set of pre-determined templates and the One Click Configuration wizard configures all of the applications selected for that study including modules to support the following clinical trial management tasks: 

  • Secure collaboration workspace
  • User management and provisioning module
  • Site feasibility and selection
  • Study document and contracting
  • Safety letter distribution and tracking
  • Study training and certification
  • Monitor trip reporting
  • Patient recruitment and retention
  • Electronic trial master file.

"Configuring a Clinical Trial Portal and integrated eTMF with all of the documents, permissions and role mapping is a complex process that used to take us 6-8 weeks to configure and test," stated Lance Converse, ePharmaSolutions' Founder and CEO.   "With One Click Configuration, we can select the sponsor, study metadata, and workflow templates and One Click Configuration will configure a fully validated study workspace and eTMF in less than 10 minutes," he added.

Clinical Trial Portals include complex workflow applications that support the identification, selection, training, activation and management of clinical study sites throughout a trial.   Each country has different documentation requirements and each site has different user groups, making it a complicated and time consuming process that is prone to errors.  In addition, all of this documentation and data is required to be maintained in a structured environment within the electronic trial master file.   ePharmaSolutions' integrated Clinical Trial Portal and eTMF streamlines the document completion process and routes completed and approved documents to the eTMF electronically, removing the manual processes and courier fees saving pharmaceutical companies millions of dollars each year.

"CROs need configurable solutions to support complex global clinical trials that can be set-up quickly, are simple to use, and offer a significant reduction in cycle times," says Steven Beales, ePharmaSolutions' Senior Vice President of Information Technology, adding "and I issue a personal invitation to anyone in industry to show me something better in terms of functionality and configurability."

ePharmaSolutions will be demonstrating the solution at the upcoming ClinTech industry event at the Loews Hotel in  Philadelphia March 11th -13th 2013.
