Ora, Inc. Unifies its Clinical Environment with Veeva to Accelerate Trial Execution

Fast-growing CRO adopts Veeva Vault Clinical Suite
to drive greater efficiency and visibility across global studies

PLEASANTON, CA — Mar. 6, 2018 — Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV), today announced that Ora, Inc., a leading ophthalmic CRO, adopted the Veeva Vault Clinical Suite to unify its clinical systems and processes. Ora is bringing together CTMS, eTMF, and study start-up applications on one platform to improve operational efficiency and visibility throughout its clinical trials. Now Ora can increase collaboration among internal stakeholders and sponsors to deliver faster, higher quality studies.

“We needed new technology to streamline clinical operations,” said Edward Leftin, manager of clinical information systems at Ora, Inc. “Veeva’s suite of unified clinical applications helps our study teams work more efficiently. Now we can manage information and end-to-end trial processes, from site activation to study closeout.”

Ora’s transition to a unified clinical environment started with Veeva Vault eTMF, helping clinical teams manage documents and processes in real-time as the TMF is generated, improving inspection readiness and reducing study close out time from weeks to days. The addition of Veeva Vault Study Startup enables Ora to speed global site selection and activation, while Veeva Vault CTMS empowers clinical teams with greater insights across the trial lifecycle for proactive trial management.

Veeva Vault Clinical Suite makes it easy for teams to share the same trial documents and data to make better, more informed decisions. For example, as site documents such as site monitoring reports or CVs are created in Vault CTMS or Vault Study Startup, they automatically become part of the TMF. This reduces manual steps and enables cross-functional teams, including sponsors, to leverage information in real-time.

“CROs are leading the industry-wide shift to unify clinical operations and build more collaborative, strategic partnerships with sponsors,” said Jennifer Goldsmith, senior vice president of Veeva Vault. “Ora is a great example of how the Veeva Vault Clinical Suite is helping break down system and process silos to improve study execution and quality.”

Vault CTMS, Vault eTMF, and Vault Study Startup are part of the Veeva Vault Clinical Suite, the industry’s first cloud platform that combines EDC, CTMS, eTMF, and study start-up to unify clinical data management and operations. Vault Clinical applications are now used by more than 170 customers, including eight of the top 20 biopharmaceutical companies deploying globally.
