Shorten your study start-up time with PCG Clinical Services & Viedoc!

shorten you study start up time

PCG Clinical Services is attracting repeat US customers due to our flexible and experienced staff and expertise as Viedoc master users, all of which leads to shortened study start-up. The EDC team analyzes the study protocol and identifies the optimal setup solution while reusing any aspects of the eCRF set-up from their vast library of previous trials. This shortens the timeframe to “go-live” and in PCG´s case, a normal set-up timeframe of Viedoc (eCRF) is only 6-8 weeks depending on the trial complexity and resourcing.

Important challenges for any eCRF solution:

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

In addition, potential amendments often require the e-CRF 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.

Viedoc is PCG’s preferred eCRF system, 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. eCRF updates after approval of an amendment can be live within 2-3 weeks.
