How Alcon Enabled Data Managers to Build Studies Directly from the Protocol

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Tuesday, July 28, 2020

After spinning out as an independent company, Alcon needed to establish all new clinical systems. As part of building up their data management function, they adopted Veeva Vault EDC and trained their team on the Agile Design build process. Just three months later, Alcon had completed three study builds.

Their data managers are building studies independently by configuring casebooks directly from the protocol, including most validation checks and rules. The clinical programmers cover more advanced checks and rules and use their newly freed time to manage Alcon’s clinical systems and metrics to improve the team’s operating efficiency.
