Novotech Selects SureClinical eTMF to Automate Clinical Operations

Internationally recognized clinical research firm Novotech announces selection of SureClincal eTMF Cloud for multiple clinical trials to help automate and manage the regulated clinical trial process, enabling accelerated clinical operations and enhanced quality for Novotech’s global clinical studies.

Rancho Cordova, CA, December 22 2014 —  SureClinical Inc., an industry-leader in collaborative cloud health sciences applications, announced today the selection of SureClinical eTMF by Novotech, an internationally recognized full-service clinical research organization (CRO) firm headquartered in Sydney, Australia.   Novotech works predominantly with U.S. and EU pharmaceutical and biotech companies and is currently managing around 100 trials across a wide range of therapeutic areas including oncology and cardiovascular disease.

The SureClinical cloud eTMF will initially be deployed to key, selected trials at Novotech to facilitate streamlined clinical trial operations such as study startup, regulatory document management and reporting, and regulatory document tracking in the electronic trial master file area for multi-year clinical trials.

“Before the adoption of SureClinical eTMF, Novotech’s clinical trial regulatory documents were captured on hybrid systems which required manual processes such as printing, scanning, tracking and filing,” explained Lynda Shelley, Executive Director of Clinical Operations at Novotech. “Now with SureClinical eTMF Cloud, internal and external clinical study stakeholders can collaboratively complete, digitally sign and share regulatory and study information in the cloud from mobile or web. This strategic capability allows us to eliminate paper at point of origin, accelerating document completion and enhancing document quality.”

In its search for the ideal eTMF to support automation of clinical trial document capture globally Novotech evaluated multiple solutions, including on-premise software and cloud solutions.  “SureClinical was selected for its global FDA and EU compliant Certified Cloud™ operations and support, automated document acquisition and workflows,  integrated digital signing, configurable filing plan, user-friendly interface and support for the new OASIS eTMF Standard for machine readable clinical trial content exchange,” said Lynda Shelley.   “We look forward to cultivating a fruitful partnership with SureClinical in the eTMF applications area across multiple clinical trials.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Novotech to provide them with access to our global Certified Cloud service, helping them to automate and streamline clinical study operations from pre-study planning to submission and product approval,” said Zack Schmidt, President and CEO of SureClinical.  “It is a sincere pleasure to work with the entire Novotech team, their sponsors and stakeholders in their quest to deliver 100% paperless clinical trials.”
