Sponsored by Businesswire

Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) today announced that Alcon, a global medical device company specializing in surgical and vision care products, chose Veeva Vault Clinical Data Management System (CDMS) as its enterprise clinical data management system for electronic data capture (EDC).

Veeva Vault CDMS is a suite of clinical data management applications on a single cloud platform that enables Alcon to manage studies from build through execution in an integrated way. Vault EDC, part of Vault CDMS, provides an intuitive interface for capturing trial data and is designed for flexibility so Alcon can create study builds faster and make mid-study changes with no downtime.

As a newly independent company, Alcon had the opportunity to select modern applications that support its ambitious R&D program. Vault CDMS meets the specific requirements and fast development cycles of medical device research while adding efficiencies in trial data management.

“Rapid study startups are crucial for us because of the quick development cycles of medical device products,” said Lisa Sauls, R&D IT director, clinical and regulatory affairs, at Alcon. “Veeva Vault CDMS is an innovative, high quality solution that offers speed and the flexibility to accommodate medical device data.”

“Veeva Vault CDMS helps life sciences companies improve agility in data management and efficiency from startup through completion,” said Henry Levy, general manager, Veeva Vault CDMS. “With its move to Veeva Vault, Alcon has the foundation to speed innovation in eye care.”

In addition to Vault CDMS, Alcon is adopting Vault PromoMats, Vault eTMF, Vault CTMS, Vault Submissions, Vault Submissions Archive, Vault QualityDocs, and Vault Training.
