Alcon Standardizes On Veeva Vault CDMS For Clinical Data Management

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). Alcon’s data management team was trained in only four days and is now building studies independently, directly from their standards and protocols. Standalone specs are no longer needed.

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. 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.”  

The head of data management at Alcon, Leianne Ebert, will be speaking in an upcoming webinar  about the training and enablement of Alcon’s data managers and clinical programmers on Vault EDC. She shares best practices for evaluating clinical systems and advice for empowering data managers to acquire new skills and new responsibilities for database builds.

Alcon is the global leader in eye care with a heritage spanning more than seven decades and the broadest portfolio of products to enhance sight. Based in Geneva, Switzerland, and Fort Worth, Texas, the company’s surgical and vision care products touch the lives of more than 260 million people in over 140 countries each year.
