Premier Research Announces Adoption of eTMF

Trial Interactive Tapped as eTMF Provider

PHILADELPHIA, September 5, 2012 – Premier Research announced today that it will use a new electronic Trial Master File (eTMF) system on all Clinical Development Services Studies. Trial Interactive has been tapped to provide the supporting platform.
The adoption of eTMF is the company’s latest investment in its 2012-2013 technology RoadMap focused on three key areas:

  • Product development efficiencies for bringing drugs to market faster and at a lower cost, including the adoption of next-generation technologies such as Cloud Optimization (SaaS and PaaS), Collaboration Portals, “Bring your own device” Networking, etc.
  • Project transparency for customers to better understand trial status and movement, including data integration across platforms, efficient data access, and cross-trial analytics.
  • Enhanced paperless, electronic environments for improved operational efficiencies supporting customers and internal teams, including eTMF, eDocument collaboration, and workflow management products.

The adoption of eTMF specifically allows for better project management through real-time access to study documentation. Key advantages of eTMF include:

  • Built-in document quality control. Secure compliance with 21 CFR Part 11
  • Easy customization to customer processes, language, and preferences.
  • Efficient TMF transfer at study conclusion.    

“The eTMF system will significantly improve efficiencies in managing final documentation by allowing our organization to store all final Trial Master File (TMF) documents electronically in a secure and regulatory compliant manner within a ‘Study Room’ accessible to internal team members and customers,” said Premier Research Group’s Krista Armstrong, Ph.D., Vice President, Clinical Development, North America. Over the next months, the company will announce further enhancements to its technology infrastructure as part of the evolution of its CRO offerings.
