Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
White papers by Clinovo on CDISC Standards for medical devices, and cloud based eClinical technologies, have been published by leading pharmaceutical publications Data Basics and Med Device Online. These follow a long line of white papers by Clinovo to have been featured in high profile publications including Life Science Leader, Pharmaceutical Online, and OpenHealthNews.
At the request of SCDM Data Basics Clinovo provided a paper by CTO Marc Desgrousilliers, 'The Five Essentials of Cloud Computing for Clinical Trials', which was based on his award-winning presentation 'Clinical Trials in The Cloud: A New Paradigm?' at SCDM 2013. In the paper, released in Data Basics Summer 2014 edition, Marc Desgrouslliers covers the 5 essential characteristics of cloud-based systems as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and applies them to eClinical systems. Issues such as validation and data security are covered, as well as the numerous benefits the cloud offers including scalability, cost savings, and increased time efficiency. Data Basics is a peer-reviewed journal distributed quarterly to 2,600+ SCDM members. Members include professionals in the biotechnology, medical device and pharmaceutical industries, as well as representatives of the academic, scientific and regulatory research communities.
Additionally, Marc Desgrousilliers was recently interviewed as part of Partnerships in Clinical Trials 'Inside Outsourcing' podcast series on the topic of cloud for clinical trials. In it, Marc covers how to get started when considering a cloud approach towards clinical trials, as well as offering a glimpse of Clinovo's upcoming cloud-based Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system.
Med Device Online published Clinovo's white paper 'CDISC for Medical Device Companies: Progress Made And Best Practices From Pharma/BioTech Implementation.' The paper is a direct transcription of a panel discussion of the same name that took place as part of Clinovo's quarterly event, the Silicon Valley BioTalks. The panel included leaders in the field of CDISC standards for medical devices including CDISC Device Team Leader Carey Smoak as well as professionals from BioMarin and Santen. The paper covers topics such as the current level of CDISC implementation in pharma, therapeutic standards for medical device, the FDA and CDISC standards, the first medical device submission for Medical Device, and the steps to educate oneself in CDISC standards.
