What was done
Ipsen is a global specialty-driven pharmaceutical company headquartered in Boulogne-Billancourt, France. Viedoc was selected as the EDC system to be used for a global non-interventional study where the main challenge was the complexity of design: many fields and forms being triggered based on complex visibility conditions. The study setup was done by one of the Viedoc study build teams.
How did it go
"The eCRF for the study went live last week. This short message is to thank you personally for the excellent quality of the work done with the eCRF set-up for the study. You have managed to address a very challenging design, you brought added value and we thank you for that. Please be informed that investigators to whom we have presented the eCRF were very enthusiastic!"

Oslo University Hospital is Norway’s greatest hospital with over 20 000 employees. The hospital is by far the biggest contributor to medical and healthcare research conducted at Norwegian hospitals. Viedoc won the tender for an EDC system based on requirements for use, data protection and price. The contract was signed and the team in Oslo was trained by a Viedoc Product Specialist. The training covered study build and general management / administration of the Viedoc platform. The Viedoc Support was also available to answer any questions the team had after the training was completed.
How did it go
"After 6 months we have 6 studies in production and 3 more are in the final QC-stage. 2 new studies are currently being built and 8 more are in the pipeline. Not bad for being the first 6 months with a new platform."

Established in 1996, Novotech is the largest independent Australia based Clinical Research Organisation (CRO). With headquarters in Sydney and operations in 12 countries, Novotech's service offering has come to be recognised for its quality both by the clients, as well as industry analyst groups. Novotech is the only Australian CRO with ISO 9000 quality credentials. After evaluating a number of different products, Novotech selected Viedoc as one of its key EDC solutions based on the ease of use and flexibility of the system especially for adaptive trial design studies.
How did it go
"Viedoc is easy to use, web-based and has an excellent user interface. This intuitive design makes designing case report forms a lot easier for complex SAD and MAD studies. The additional Randomisation functionalities meant that complicated randomisation schedules and stratification could also be added to trials. After the initial training provided by Viedoc, Novotech designed 12 studies in the first 12 months. Managing 80 sites and over 240 subjects in a single trial is a huge task in itself, but this was implemented with ease in Viedoc. The eCRF works extremely well and we have received excellent feedback from study coordinators and investigators."

How did it go
"I find Viedoc a simple to use EDC platform with an intuitive user interface. It is easy to build a study and quick to set-up different components like the integrated ePRO (ViedocMe), lab data upload (Helipad). The system helps address even the most challenging designs which always makes the sponsor happy. Many sponsors who have worked with us also find the different features that are part of the EDC system itself very helpful during the study conduct phase."

Nutricia Research is the global R&D organization behind the Early Life Nutrition and Advanced Medical Nutrition divisions of Danone, sharing its global mission to deliver health through food to as many people as possible. In 2015 Nutricia Research decided to search for a preferred partner for an Electronic Data Capture System (EDC) as a cloud- or web-based solution that would meet privacy and regulatory (e.g. 21 CFR part 11) compliance for all clinical studies. Nutricia Research also intended to build the electronic Case Report Forms internally, using the selected cloud- or web-based EDC system. After a tender Viedoc was awarded the contract in January 2016.
How did it go
Twelve people from the Nutricia Research Utrecht- and Singapore offices participated in a web-based training over 3 sessions. The web-based training was provided by a Viedoc Product Specialist. The training covered study build and general administration of the Viedoc platform.
"We were all very much involved in building the Nutricia templates and the team is really enthusiastic. We adopted daily SCRUM meetings and SPRINTS for the implementation. This proves to work very well."

Neuromod Devices is a medical device company running innovative clinical trials to treat the symptoms of tinnitus. Viedoc was chosen as the EDC supplier for our multi-site interventional study. As a start-up we opted to design and develop the application on our own.
How did it go
"The Viedoc system is very easy to navigate and develop, particularly for a team of naïve developers. The team at Viedoc were extremely supportive throughout our development process. Developing the application ourselves allowed us to implement the various innovative aspects of our trial and make changes in an efficient manner. Our team of clinicians finds the application extremely easy to use and the flexibility meets the requirements of our studies."
