Case Study for Clinical Research Management
Client background
The client is one of the largest global Clinical Research Organizations having footprint in 18 countries. Services support the
entire drug development process cycle. Service offerings range from preclinical testing to clinical trials management (Phase I to
Phase IV) thus assisting pharmaceutical and biotech companies of all sizes to fulfill their research and development, clinical
trial, regulatory and marketing support needs.
Project background
Data entry of Case Report Forms (CRFs), as part of Clinical Trials Phase II and III, was expensive, time consuming, and created
a bottleneck in proceeding to the next stages of review for the client. CRFs were being entered by the client at the client’s own
production facilities. The client was looking for a way to eliminate the bottleneck resulting from the time consuming, low end 1st
and 2nd pass data entry of CRFs
Challenges faced by our Client
Our Solution
The client, being a global operator, has a centralized online database and the service
provider needed to have 24-hour access to this database
IDS Infotech established fire walled VPN connectivity between the customer’s Oracle
Clinical Database in the US and our operational facility in India
To eliminate the bottleneck, the client established a minimum turn around target of
21 days to process a backlog of 11,500 forms
All 11,500 forms processed by IDS Infotech in 7days. Post processing efforts by the
client was reduced significantly, as all manual discrepancies were resolved at 2nd
pass entry
Being a Phase III clinical study requisite, audit trails were required to ensure client
confidentiality
A secure, US based server was used to transfer scanned CRFs (images) to India. All
processes strictly followed the required SOPs dictated by the client
The client utilized Oracle Clinical, which required specific application knowledge and
operating skills
• IDS Infotech core team working on this project was trained by CRO in UK on Oracle
Clinical (OC)
• A T3 module created by the core team, with assistance from the client, allowed
efficient transfer of OC skills to India based data entry personnel
• Additional on-line training by teleconference and Web Cast was imparted to
facilitate knowledge transfer, resulting in OC expertise with minimal investment
Benefits to Client
• Accuracy: The accuracy of the delivered work was on average 98.5%
• Turn Around Time (TAT): The agreed upon TAT by the client to receive the indexed CRFs was 21 days whereas IDS Infotech delivered the same within 7 days
as we have dedicated team at IDS Infotech to do CRF indexing exclusively. Currently the team is working with a TAT of three days and meeting the same
consistently.
• Cost saved up to 40%: By using IDS Infotech personnel who are well trained to provide best of services there is no capital investment on infrastructure and
resources from the client’s side, the total reduction in the cost of the client is as high as 40 %. We were able to provide solution to the client to reduce the costs
involved in handling multiple databases as against a single database.
Page 14
Case Study: Our approach
Phase 1: Process
Assessment
•
Client visit: IDS Infotech team visited
the client’s site in the UK for three
months in order to understand their
process
• The client also visited IDS Infotech in
India and performed audit of the
facility for the capability testing to
perform clinical research related work
• We were compliant with all the
requirements
• Established Clinical Data
Management (CDM) processes at
IDS Infotech
• Trained the IDS Infotech team
Phase 2: Implementation
of Services
Gained access to client’s application
and database through secured user
IDs and passwords
• Provided the following services for the
CRFs Phase I, II and III of the clinical
trials
• Indexing
• First pass
• Second pass of the CRFs
• Quality Management of the studies
• Performed data indexing of all the
above mentioned studies, which is the
step two in data entry of Phase I
clinical trials
• The entire team at IDS Infotech
was trained online for data
indexing
• Conducted Quality Management: QM
is the final step in Clinical Database
check. The main objective of QM was
to ensure that the database is an
accurate reflection of the CRF and the
data review is appropriate and
consistent with study guidelines and
conventions
•
Phase 3: Quality
Analysis
• Post completion of data entry,
released the CRFs, which in turn were
saved in the client database for the
Quality Analysis at their end

Case Study for Insurance Services
Client: Third party Administrator
Client
The client is a leading Third Party Administrator and principally engaged in administering self funded healthcare plans for 300+
lives, single or multi-site employers and back shop claim processing. The client is responsible for the administration of an
employer’s medical benefit plan. They are also responsible for printing and providing ID cards and medical benefit plan
booklets, as well as processing and arranging for payment of medical claims.
Project Background
Challenges faced by Client
The client was looking for a partner who could help them to perform the
digitization of about 3000 medical claims per day. The client wanted to engage
cost effective service providers which can meet the expected TAT of 12 hour
for these claims with at least 99% accuracy. IDS conducted detailed study of
their requirements and undertook the pilot for the project.
The major challenges were to :
•
Cut on the paper printing cost.
•
Output in HIPAA 837 format. 3).
•
Achieve the turnaround time with the expected 99% accuracy levels.
Our Solution
•
The IDS in-house training team developed a fast track training program for the data entry personnel, and ramped up staff into its dedicated facility to the
required number on an accelerated pace.
•
Key processes were optimized to maximize productivity from the staff and all the team members were adequately trained and tested before putting them on the
project.
•
To meet the TAT requirements of our client, a special application was designed where we could open the client input files on the upper half of the screen and
index the data in our application in the lower half of the screen. Also this application recorded all the entries made and auto-populated the recurring data. This
saved a lot of time and increased the productivity of our team members. Also, we did not have to print all the input data received from the client.
•
100% quality sampling was done during the initial 2 weeks to understand the weak areas of the team and retraining sessions were conducted to improve on
them.
•
Daily feedback sessions with the client were conducted during the pilot phase to ensure customer satisfaction.
Benefits to Client
•
Client appreciated the performance during the pilot phase. They were particularly happy with the quick turnaround and the quality work.
•
Client gained the confidence on IDS, and they doubled up the volumes in 45 days.
•
Client started seeking solutions from IDS wherever they required our services that required any special treatments.
•
Cost Saving: The outsourcing concept resulted in huge cost savings to the client as otherwise they were getting the digitization done domestically which incurred
heavy costs compared to the off-shore digitization.
