Can We Integrate Clinical And Safety Systems In The Cloud?



In our last “cloud fact or fiction” post, we discussed the ability to migrate clinical and pharmacovigilance data to the cloud. Let’s jump right in and talk about system integrations in the cloud.

Claim #7: Clinical trial software in the cloud cannot be integrated with other systems. 

Fact or fiction? Fiction.

Hosted clinical trial, data, and safety solutions can be integrated with other systems just like any in-house system. Hosting does not limit integration methods or types of systems.

Cloud system integrations can include:

  • Clinical Data Analytics
  • Clinical Data Management Systems (CDMS)
  • Clinical Data Warehouses
  • Clinical Trial Management Systems (CTMS)
  • CRO systems
  • Electronic Data Capture (EDC) Systems
  • Electronic document management systems (EDMS)
  • Financial systems
  • Interactive Voice Response Systems (IVRS)
  • Investigator Portals
  • Safety and Pharmacovigilance Systems
