Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORONTO - Nov 01, 2018 - Not all eClinical applications are the same. For one thing, an eTMF, an EDC and a CTMS all fulfill different functions. Perhaps more importantly, they are all built with varying degrees of complexity.
The eTMF and EDC are both relatively simple applications in the IT world. Either can be introduced for a specific study or for a number of studies. If organizations are unhappy with their eTMF or EDC applications, they can switch without too much fuss.
The CTMS, on the other hand, is highly complex. It is the nerve center of the eClinical suite and is highly integrated with other software. It can be expensive to introduce, and its normal lifespan is more than 13 years.
Therefore, once an organization installs a CTMS, they will be committed for well over a decade. That’s why it is so important to choose a CTMS carefully and be armed with the best knowledge in order to do so.
Which CTMS concept will be most functional: one where the entire eClinical suite comes from the same vendor or one where individual components are sourced from different vendors?
Drawing on over 22 years of software development expertise, this webinar will explore some of the key lessons that have driven customer satisfaction with their eClinical suite. Interested organizations can explore the risks and benefits of using one vendor vs. using multiple vendors, and find out how to ensure that they continue to be able to take advantage of the latest technology long after they’ve made their choice in order to decrease their risk and keep them competitive — all while staying clear of vendor lock-ins.
In this live webinar upcoming on Monday, Nov. 19, 2018, at 2:30 p.m. EST featured speakers will explore:
- Where innovation is typically born, and how it eventually gets to the end user
- What drives innovation, and what stifles it
- A high-level overview of how an eClinical suite functions
- Key factors for optimal software integration
- How to ensure an organization is poised to be able to adopt new technology
- The steady diet of myths and other tall tales the software industry feeds us
- The easiest way to fall victim to “vendor lock-in” and what organizations can do to avoid it
Join BSI’s expert speakers Jens B. Thuesen, BSI CTMS Business Development & Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Pamela Penman, CTMS Business Development, as they dive into what really matters when choosing a CTMS to complete an eClinical suite, and gain the knowledge and tools to make a better decision for the organization.
