Electronic document management systems (EDMS) offer excellent version control functionality, but, when it comes to collaboration, they tend to be…clunky, at best. SharePoint 2016, on the other hand, offers the best of both worlds: the security of an EDMS and the collaboration tools of, well, SharePoint.
This guide analyzes how artificial intelligence – including machine learning – can be used by pharmaceutical and medical device companies to improve the clinical data review and cleansing process.
Here’s an example of how a global pharmaceutical company is using SharePoint to manage their regulatory submissions and standard operating procedures (SOPs):
Prior to switching to SharePoint, the organization was using a legacy EDMS, but the system had reached its capacity. The performance was slow, it lacked collaboration tools, it required too many workarounds, and the cost per user was high.
The company implemented a SharePoint portal to facilitate read-only viewing of documents for both internal and external users. The result was a boost in collaboration and user-engagement, a substantial increase in performance, and a reduction in the total cost of ownership. The portal offers robust and flexible security that enables it to serve as a single repository for internal and external users, and regulated and non-regulated content.
