Lotus Clinical Research Expands Partnership with Veeva to Accelerate Clinical Trials
Fast-growing CRO utilizes Veeva Vault Clinical Suite to substantially decrease startup time
NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J. and PLEASANTON, Calif., May 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) today announced that Lotus Clinical Research expanded its partnership with Veeva and broadened its adoption of Veeva Vault Clinical Suite, a strategic move to strengthen its service delivery and efficiency. This builds on Lotus’ existing use of Vault Clinical Suite to implement swifter and more connected studies. The successful incorporation of Veeva Vault CDMS, Veeva Vault eTMF, and Veeva Vault CTMS has effectively scaled Lotus’ trial operations while sustaining the highest quality standards. With a unified clinical ecosystem, Lotus has significantly reduced study startup time.
Lotus President, Bill Martin, elaborated on the benefits of the partnership with Veeva, “This collaboration enables Lotus to conduct a higher volume of clinical trials while improving coordination with sponsors and clinical trial sites. Easy-to-use, integrated clinical applications are vital for Lotus as we continue to diversify our disease area expertise and increase our site interactions and patient recruitment.”
As a rapidly expanding CRO, Lotus sought to develop an adaptable, connected, and scalable infrastructure to keep pace with its growth. The internal team of trained programmers is now leveraging Vault CDMS, its primary clinical data management system, to design studies entirely in-house. This has resulted in faster delivery of electronic data capture (EDC) study builds, significantly cutting study startup time.
Using integrated applications on a single platform has enabled Lotus to effortlessly share questionnaires and metrics between Vault CDMS and Vault CTMS, simplifying monitoring reports. With a single source for documentation and a seamless flow of data and documents across clinical applications, Lotus can increase compliance, ensure rapid study initiation, and deliver a better site experience. These advancements have propelled Lotus’ transition from a company with an initial focus on acute pain and CNS to one that supports all facets of clinical research.
“We’re proud to grow our five-plus year partnership with Lotus, bringing together their experience and knowledge executing complex clinical trials with our technology expertise,” said Jon Young, director, Veeva Vault Clinical strategy. “With Veeva Vault Clinical Suite, Lotus can provide value-added services to customers and streamline how they work with sites for greater speed and agility.”
