Florence Healthcare Now Equipping IQVIA Research Sites With Site Enablement Technology
Florence Healthcare and IQVIA have entered a multi-year collaboration to ensure research sites participating in IQVIA studies have access to site enablement technology. IQVIA will leverage Florence’s Site Enablement Platform, SiteLink™, on studies to reduce clinical trial bottlenecks at sites caused by repetitive, manual document workflows.
Through SiteLink, Florence’s top-rated electronic Investigator Site File (eISF), eBinders™ can be deployed to research sites. Sites will control their eISF, and, thanks to SiteLink, monitors can instantly review documents in the eISF before transferring them to the electronic Trial Master File (eTMF).
As more than 80% of the eTMF originates in the eISF, this direct link supports higher-quality documents and reduces study close-out turnaround times.
According to Rajneesh Patil, VP of Clinical Operations and Head of Digital Strategy, Technology & Analytics Innovation at IQVIA: “We’re providing a more valuable site management experience, while allowing more time and opportunities for site support, compliance reviews and continuous monitoring of patient safety and study quality.”
In the past, remote monitoring solutions have often burdened sites instead of enabling them. Combined with site staffing constraints, this can lead to bottlenecks that prevent new treatments from reaching patients. eBinders has an industry-leading 92% site adoption rate, proving that sites will use the software when sponsors or CROs deploy it to them using SiteLink.
“This collaboration with IQVIA reflects our mission to eliminate the fragmented workflows that prevent cures,” says Ryan Jones, CEO of Florence Healthcare. “We believe that enabling research sites to do their best work while creating a digital link between sponsors and sites will accelerate research from bench to bedside.”
To date, Florence and IQVIA already have deployed SiteLink at a number of research sites and this extended collaboration will build on that success. By reducing fragmented workflows between sites, CROs and sponsors, IQVIA and Florence can help clinical researchers spend more of their time on developing life-saving therapies.
