IntraLinks, provider of critical information exchange solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with Adobe Systems Inc. to develop comprehensive solutions that will automate cross-organization data capture and submission based-business processes within the life sciences industry.
The initial solution IntraLinks and Adobe are bringing to market addresses the document-intensive clinical trial process. The solution combines the strengths of IntraLinks’ solutions, which facilitate the secure, compliant, and auditable exchange of critical information inside and outside the enterprise, and the Adobe LiveCycle Enterprise Suite (ES). The new tool provides clinical trial managers with a single, tightly-integrated platform to first conduct electronic data capture and then securely manage, organize and share content across firewalls with sponsors, CROs and investigative sites.
Specifically, the joint solution will help improve workflow during the site recruitment and study start-up phases of a clinical trial. Once an electronic form is created using LiveCycle ES, IntraLinks’ validated platform manages the external workflow to organize, distribute, collect, and track e-forms across the firewall with email notifications and an easy “one-click to submit” process for the e-form. LiveCycle ES completes the process by automatically retrieving the completed forms from IntraLinks and routing them through an internal review and approval process.
