Devana Brings Cloud-Based Collaboration to Clinical Trial Central Research Teams

Bringing Cloud-Based Collaboration to Clinical Trial Central Research TeamsThe pandemic has had a significant impact on the clinical research industry. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, regulatory authorities have been calling for an increased adoption of decentralized clinical trials (DCTs). Devana Solutions has been pivotal during this time, helping central research operations teams collaborate safely and remotely on our platform and connect to decentralized site staff serving patients in underserved communities.

As a result, our PROPEL cloud solution has taken off as the superior research site-operations and analytics platform for leading research organizations, conducting decentralized trials, around the globe.

The Benefits of Decentralized Trials

More research organizations are moving to a decentralized trial model because they found success reaching new patients during the pandemic, as patients opted to stay home or avoid massive health care centers as part of their social distancing efforts.

Other advantages of decentralized trials include:

  • Accelerated patient access
  • Improved patient engagement and retention
  • Increased diversity

Challenge: Communication and Exchange of Data

One of the challenges that sites faced as they moved to decentralized trials was the ability to communicate and share data. These teams used to operate alongside the central research operations teams, but now they were operating in alternate locations.

Where central research operations teams had unlimited access to on-premise data and the ease of connecting with someone in-house, they were forced to operate through delayed communication or shared spreadsheets.

The Answer: Devana Solutions

Devana Solutions provided these teams with customized cloud software that brings clinical research sites to patients in these underserved communities so they can benefit from clinical research as a care option.

Devana’s cloud technology also allows highly-skilled research operations professionals to share protocols and other supporting trial documentation with decentralized sites and community-based providers.

More importantly, Devana allows centralized researchers to collaborate with the sites during study start-up and through trial completion, regardless of the trial location.

The future of clinical research is bright. As the industry continues to evolve, Devana Solutions’ capabilities will evolve, as well.

Students of the Year is a philanthropic leadership development program for exemplary high school students that fosters professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management. The students involved in this campaign raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the world’s largest nonprofit fighting blood cancer.

The Sherners, along with their friend Theo Weiman, formed Team Raise Hope Together in honor of their children’s grandfather, Larry Thayer, who was diagnosed with CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) in 2007.

In April of this past year, their children’s aunt, Betsy, found a tumor on her left breast. Days later, she received a breast cancer diagnosis. In the months since, she has undergone a double mastectomy and a complete hysterectomy.

Devana Solutions is joining to be a part of the generation that puts an end to cancer and provides a monumental impact in the fight.

Devana Solutions’ CEO and Co-founder Barry Lake comments on the effort, “We are proud to support Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Students of the Year program. We strive to offer solutions to those committed to the fight against cancer, helping those researchers on the frontline close the gap in eliminating cancer by cutting time and costs in the drug development process. One day, we will defeat cancer!”

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is on a mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Since 1949, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has invested more than $1.5 billion in research to advance therapies and save lives. Today, blood cancer patients live longer because of these advancements made possible by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The family remains committed to defeating their diagnoses. “I continue to work on my personal recovery, which requires piecing together a new body, mind, and spirit,” their Aunt Betty said.

Take Clinical Trial Management to the Next Level with LYNK

As a technology provider that connects central trial operations teams with decentralized site staff and clinicians, our goal at Devana Solutions is to help research organizations speed new therapies to patients by automating clinical trial processes and capturing site metrics for analysis and execution.

You may be familiar with PROPEL, our enterprise-level platform for managing an expansive research organization consisting of owned or affiliated investigative sites or study teams. By leveraging the cloud to connect central research operations professionals with site-based clinicians and staff for real-time, clinical trial collaboration, it provides easy access to all of the information on trials, sites, users, and contacts at your organizational level. Organizations such as Velocity Clinical Research use PROPEL to create cohesive operations and improve efficiency within their organization and accelerate study startup.

What you may not be familiar with, however, is LYNK—the site-facing extension of the PROPEL platform that expands the capabilities to key site-level staff. LYNK takes PROPEL one step further, giving sites even more ways to streamline processes and increase efficiency. LYNK is the sites’ personalized interface that allows them to receive and respond to trial opportunities and quickly and easily complete feasibility assessments.

Manage Clinical Trial Opportunities

The LYNK interface will automatically notify the sites when a new clinical trial opportunity is sent by the central team. The site LYNK user can review the specifics of each trial, determine which investigator is best for the project, and instantly provide information that is necessary to complete the feasibility assessment. LYNK’s investigator profiles store all vital documents for the sites’ investigators, such as medical licenses, CVs, and training certificates. With LYNK, sites won’t need to sift through emails, document folders, or physical files, because all of this necessary information is located in one place.

Simplify Feasibility Questionnaires

Thanks to LYNK, the cumbersome feasibility process is simplified. Available in the LYNK dashboard, sites can view any outstanding feasibility questionnaires, which will auto populate with the previously answered, common information that is also found in their site’s profile, including contact information, on-site equipment and staff, and specific areas of therapeutic experience. Because LYNK stores all of the necessary data in site profiles, sites won’t need to search for the information in documents and spreadsheets—it’s available instantly.

These are just a couple of ways LYNK works seamlessly in conjunction with PROPEL, providing benefits not only to the greater research organization but to the sites, as well.
