Clinical trials involve intense clinical decisions that demand fast decisions and action. However, sponsors’ choice of technology constrains their possibilities; often they are forced to run the trial their technology limits them to, not the study they need. EDC technologies must allow for change and flexibility to deliver advanced trial designs faster.


Simplifying the Study Design in Oncology Trials

Protocols for Phase 3 oncology trials are 16% longer and require substantially more review cycles than other drugs (9.7 vs 5.9), due to their greater complexity (Tufts CSDD, 2021). With traditional EDC systems, programmers must build out every potential scenario and use custom functions. In Vault EDC, the use of dynamics, a simplified study schedule editor, and the obsolescence of custom functions allow teams to design the study they need.

Documenting the Patient Journey in Oncology Trials

Oncology trials involve complicated patient journeys that make for complicated CRFs. Vault EDC addresses these complexities by simplifying how patient visits and forms are created, guiding sites through error-free data entry, and simplifying processes for local labs.

In traditional EDC systems, sites must figure out how to navigate the CRFs and then intuit the correct way to enter data. In Vault EDC, the proper use of dynamics will alleviate that issue. And we’ve simplified elements like RECIST (Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors) data collection and managing local lab reference ranges.

Making Informed Decisions in Oncology Trials

Making good decisions is easiest when looking at only the relevant data. We have developed user-specific interfaces for the different roles to display just the information they require, whether that be targeted SDV (Source Data Verification) or medical assessments of the clinical data. These include QuickView for CRAs and data managers, Review Assessments for medical teams, and Coder for medical coding.

Acting with Speed and Agility in Oncology Trials

Phase 2 - 3 oncology trials generate 65% more substantial amendments than other studies (4.3 vs. 2.4, phase 2 and 4.6 vs. 3.0, phase 3) (Tufts CSDD, 2021). The high burden of making changes encourages teams to postpone taking action until they can introduce multiple changes in a single update. In Vault EDC we have eliminated the need for migrations and delivered an extremely flexible system that allows study teams to make planned and unplanned changes with ease.

"The real difficulty in building a study lies in the edit checks - that's where you require a programming background. But that's not needed with Vault EDC. If you know how to use Boolean logic and if/then statements, you can write edit checks in Studio. It is really very intuitive and easy to use."
