CTA announces partnership in delivering coordinated Electronic Document Management for Victorian study sites

Cancer Trials Australia (CTA) is pleased to announce a new project funded by the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) Efficiency Program, providing Victorian sites with an exciting opportunity to implement the electronic document management system ’SiteDocs Portal‘ for oncology clinical trials.

SiteDocs Portal is a document management platform developed by TrialDocs and JeyLabs. The product allows streamlined management of key regulatory documents between sponsor pharmaceutical companies and clinical trial teams.

Victorian regional and metropolitan hospitals and institutes with cancer clinical trials units will benefit from the project. Investment has been committed for product licensing and, critically, for dedicated project staff. Project staff will work with each site to enable and support the roll out of the product. The project promotes a consistent and harmonised approach to regulatory clinical trial documentation and ease of use to internal stakeholders and external sponsors.

Courtney Thornely, Program Manager of the VCCC Efficiency Program said, “A key strategy for the VCCC alliance is to increase the number of cancer clinical trials available and improve patient access to trials. To achieve these goals the VCCC alliance partners and collaborators are investigating opportunities to improve the efficiency of trial management processes further.

“Resourcing has been identified as a challenge in developing clinical trials infrastructure, improved systems will alleviate trial coordinators’ administrative burden, freeing up time to recruit and manage trial participants.”

Cancer Trials Australia CEO Dr Kurt Lackovic said, “We are excited to be partnering with the VCCC and TrialDocs for this important project. CTA has built strong relationships throughout Victoria’s hospital network and we are keen to support them with a product that reduces repetitive administration and provides sponsors with a consistent mechanism to obtain necessary documents to both open and maintain trial momentum.”

VCCC and CTA will commence planning consultations with sites in early 2019.

Applications for the role of Project Officer – Electronic Document Management will be open until Friday 30 November 2018. Please see https://cancertrialsaustralia.com/about-us/employment/ for details. Applications accepted via Seek https://www.seek.com.au/job/37733455
