NextDocs takes steps to get clinical trials into the cloud

NextDocs has been technology partners with Microsoft for years, which allows them to move into the next frontier as Microsoft does. So now, they are looking to piggyback of the cloud technology Microsoft is using. According to Fierce Biotech IT, their goal is to put clinical trials software in site investigators hands no matter where they are through their mobile phone as long as they have access to SharePoint.

A statement from Matt Walz, NextDocs' tech chief stated:
"We live in an ever more global, mobile and connected world that can pose many business challenges but also presents opportunities. The native Windows 8 app for Trial Exchange allows life sciences professionals to readily access and contribute documents from any device anywhere in the world. It makes clinical trial document management solutions easy-to-use without sacrificing compliance, security or mobility."

Later this month at Partnerships in Clinical Trials, Merge eClinical and Medtronic Inc. will join us to present "Leveraging Technology to Create Efficiency When Contracting with Third Party Vendors." During this presentation, they will look at situations like those NextDocs are presenting - technology solutions that will allow Pharma companies to better and more quickly conduct clinical trials. For more information on this session and the rest of the program, download the agenda.

Do you see this as the future of clinical trials? What will access to clinical trial files worldwide on any project do for speeding up the lengthy process of clinical trials?
