A THE 5 ESSENTIALS OF CLOUD COMPUTING FOR CLINICAL TRIALS

The application of the five characteristics of cloud computing to EDC clearly indicates the benefits that cloud computing can offer to eClinical systems, and the pharmaceutical industry at large. The key theme is that it removes the barriers to entry to starting a clinical trial whilst simultaneously improving efficiencies. As we have observed these barriers include the cost, infrastructure changes, steep learning curve, scalability, and implementation of eClinical systems, all of which can be addressed by the cloud. That is not to say that cloud adoption remains an entirely simply process for the life sciences industry. We must ensure the life sciences professionals are properly educated in order to avoid instances where innovative technology that can benefit the industry is neglected due to perceived risks. These risks can be easily avoided by following protocols and relying on experts. Ultimately, we believe cloud computing technologies will revolutionize the healthcare and life science industries, enabling pharmaceutical companies to bring their drug to patients faster at a lower cost.

How to Improve Healthcare with Cloud Computing

whitePaper |

As with any new technology, there are concerns that are both unique to healthcare and common to all industries. Security and privacy become regulatory compliance issues, while high availability is a must for systems that deal with life-and-death situations. Data movement across borders and ownership of that data are also important. Reports show as many as 30% of healthcare organizations are either implementing or operating cloud-based solutions1 , and the result is a wealth of vendors moving their applications to cloud models. Although these cloud technologies are mostly limited to email applications and collaboration tools like Microsoft Live Meeting, the movement to clinical systems is starting to grow. Electronic health records, diagnostic imaging, analytics and the introduction of health information exchanges all lend themselves to be cloud-based with a clinical focus. This white paper will explore the different aspects of cloud adoption and how healthcare providers can move forward with a cloud-based solution.
