Strategic collaboration to advance clinical trial technology and processes
DURHAM, NC and PLEASANTON, CA — April 15, 2021 — Parexel and Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) today announced a strategic collaboration to accelerate clinical trials through technology and process innovation. The unique collaboration combines the best of each company’s experience across thousands of studies worldwide – Parexel as a leading clinical research organization (CRO) and Veeva as the technology innovator powering trials – to improve study efficiency and get new therapies to patients faster.
As part of the partnership, Parexel is standardizing on Veeva’s suite of clinical operations applications, including Veeva Vault eTMF, Vault CTMS, and Vault Study Startup to streamline operations. Veeva Vault CDMS for clinical data management will also become a standard offering available from Parexel to its customers.
With insights from sponsors, sites, and patients, the companies will collaborate to continuously improve Veeva’s cloud technology and Parexel’s processes for delivery of clinical trials. Parexel will have early access and provide input into Veeva’s clinical products, including innovations to support sites and patients in decentralized clinical trials (DCT), risk-based quality management (RBQM), and community-based sites.
“By adopting Veeva’s clinical solutions we will streamline trial processes, drive greater efficiency, and make trial execution and participation easier for sponsors, sites, and patients,” said Jamie Macdonald, CEO of Parexel. “Through this expanded partnership with Veeva, we expect to deliver greater value for customers and make an even bigger impact on patients’ lives.
“We’re proud to partner with Parexel to drive customer success and speed innovations in clinical research,” said Peter Gassner, founder and CEO of Veeva. “Together, we can accelerate how our customers bring new vaccines, diagnostics, devices, and therapies to patients in need.”
