In many professions, what stands between a working professional and a summer vacation is a task list that involves quite a bit of content. This might require tracking down correct document versions and gaining content approvals, before anyone on the work team can responsibly enjoy a vacation.
It’s in these pre-holiday moments that content management efficiencies earn their proper due, as professionals consider MTTS — “mean-time-to-summer.” How quickly and accurately can their hefty task list get executed in order to still go on vacation?
Just like technical support personnel measure “mean-time-to-resolution” (MTTR), counting how long it takes to close a help desk ticket, our EMC Life Sciences customers can measure MTTS thanks to our latest content management solutions. Using portals, intuitive file uploads and single sign-on, they can post record MTTS times, even amidst clinical trials.
The Trials of Clinical Trials
Our Life Sciences personnel frequently face significant paperwork hurdles amidst their tight regulatory environment. During clinical trials, clinicians and investigators especially need to manage many interactions with multiple pharmaceutical sponsors. For the startup phase alone, a single sponsor requires various signed documents from each site, and a site may be running multiple clinical trials simultaneously. It’s in these settings that automation and electronic collaboration can save time, while still ensuring accuracy.
EMC’s Investigator Portal can help drive down MTTS by electronically distributing and collecting required documentation. The portal, part of the EMC Documentum Electronic Trial Master File solution (Documentum eTMF), centralizes where and how Life Sciences staff work on trial content. It keeps all documents visible and organized within a single repository.
Even for those organizations who have an existing Investigator portal, or those planning to use the future industry-developed Transcelerate portal, integration with EMC Documentum eTMF can expedite paperwork and processes.
MTTS for our EMC Investigator Portal customers? Low!
Leveraging EMC expertise in content management and the Life Sciences sector, Documentum eTMF and its Investigator Portal eliminates hours of tedious document management with a user friendly experience. Imagine MTTS for Investigators if they could:
• Select and upload trial documents quickly and easily, in one centralized location
• e-Sign required documentation with 21 CFR Part 11 compliant electronic signatures
• Find all essential documents, information and communications in your portal, 24/7
Digital Acknowledgements & Real-Time Notifications
As responsible stewards for patient safety, both sponsors and Investigators can leverage real time notifications, access and digital acknowledgements. This includes Continue reading
