Debiopharm International SA Strengthens Compliance and Clinical Trial Oversight With Veeva Vault eTMF

Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) announced today that Debiopharm International SA, part of Swiss-based biopharmaceutical company Debiopharm Group™, selected Veeva Vault eTMF to improve oversight across its trial master file (TMF) processes and work closely with contract research organizations (CROs) by collaborating on a single, cloud-based application.

“Veeva is helping us streamline our clinical operations,” said Christian A. Aeschlimann, director of clinical operations at Debiopharm. “Veeva Vault eTMF will help us maintain an always-accurate, up-to-date TMF and align with external partners by working in the same system.”

As a sponsor, Debiopharm is required by ICH E6(R2) to maintain oversight throughout clinical trials. External partners were unable to access the company's previous, on-premise eTMF, so CROs used their own systems and transferred documents periodically. This meant that Debiopharm did not have full, real-time visibility into the CROs’ TMF activities.

Veeva Vault eTMF provides a single source of truth for trial documentation. Sponsors and CROs can manage TMF documents and processes in the same system, in real-time, as they are being executed. Now Debiopharm can keep its TMF in a constant state of inspection readiness and ensure partners adhere to its standard operating procedures.

“In our quest for continuous improvement, we selected Veeva Vault eTMF to help us work more efficiently and maintain high quality trial documentation,” said Vincent Demeautis, clinical operations manager at Debiopharm. “Sharing a single system with CROs to drive all TMF processes will eliminate the need to manage and reconcile multiple TMF sources while improving our responsiveness and collaboration with external and internal study team members.”

Veeva Vault eTMF will also provide Debiopharm with reports and dashboards for visibility into TMF completeness, timeliness, and accuracy. This will help the company to check the status and quality of documentation and proactively resolve any issues that arise.

"Veeva Vault eTMF was the best solution on the market to meet our current and future needs," said Sofie Lemmens, senior clinical trial associate at Debiopharm, who led the implementation of Veeva Vault eTMF. "It was a critical investment across our internal teams to improve TMF quality and access."

By adopting Veeva Vault eTMF, Debiopharm has taken its first step toward a unified clinical model to streamline end-to-end processes and systems, increase collaboration, and improve performance across trials. This reflects an industrywide shift, with nearly all (99%) respondents to the Veeva 2017 Unified Clinical Operations Survey reporting the need to unify their clinical operations.

“Sponsors are unifying systems and processes to improve study quality and execution while managing a growing number of trials and increasing complexity across the clinical lifecycle,” said Rik Van Mol, vice president, R&D Strategy, Europe at Veeva. “Veeva Vault eTMF lets Debiopharm improve trial visibility and compliance as well as begin a journey toward unified clinical operations.”

Veeva Vault eTMF is part of Veeva Vault Clinical Suite, the industry's first suite of applications that combines eTMF with EDC, CTMS, and study start-up to unify clinical data management and operations.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
