No one beats LINK Medical in Startup time

Get your study eCRF running in only a couple of weeks

Case study summary:

LINK Medical is attracting repeat US customers due to our flexible, experienced staff and expertise as Viedoc Master Users, all of which contribute to a shortened study start-up. Our electronic data capture (EDC) team has been involved with Viedoc, our preferred EDC system since its inception and LINK Medical has now delivered over 350 studies on the platform. Our expert team analyzes study protocols and identifies the optimal setup solution within two weeks. We can also draw from our vast library of previous trials and leverage many aspects of previous electronic case report form (eCRF) set-ups. This shortens the timeframe to “go-live” and in LINK Medical´s case, a normal timeframe for setting-up Viedoc (eCRF) is only 6-8 weeks depending on trial complexity and resourcing.


1. Important challenges for any eCRF solution:

The regulatory approval time in the US is relatively short compared to many other parts of the world. Therefore, a critical success factor for any clinical trial is to complete a study start-up and start running as soon as possible after all applicable regulatory and ethical approvals have been obtained.

In addition, potential amendments often require the eCRF to be updated. Having flexibility in an EDC, along with a quick turnaround, is crucial to ensure a trial isn’t delayed right out of the gates.

Difficult, expensive, and inflexible eCRF solutions are common throughout the industry, but LINK Medical can provide a more cost-effective and flexible solution.


2. LINK Medical’s Solution

Viedoc is LINK Medical’s preferred eCRF system, and it is built with the end-user in mind. The standard set-up time for Viedoc is 6-8 weeks from when the original protocol is available. In addition, eCRF updates after approval of an amendment can be live within 2-3 weeks.


LINK Medical can offer substantial cost savings because of the smart efficiencies built into Viedoc. Our expert knowledge of the system – along with the experience of our study design team – ensure that quality is never compromised. Our expert team provides everything you need: high quality, guaranteed regulatory compliance, and an exceptionally flexible eCRF. In addition, we are audited by our customers several times a year and the outcomes further contribute to maintaining our high-quality standards.
