Uppsala University Hospital facilitates patient studies with Viedoc
PRESS RELEASE / 2018-12-18
The Clinical Research and Development Unit at Uppsala University hospital has signed a three-year contract to use Viedoc as their primary EDC system. The hospital now has access to a world-class EDC and ePRO solution. The two parties will also be working together to further develop Viedoc in order to find improved ways to facilitate clinical research.
“Viedoc provides Uppsala University Hospital with the resources to carry out more numerous and more effective clinical studies,” says Henrik Blombergsson, co-founder and COO of Viedoc.
The R&D Unit at Uppsala University Hospital’s cancer clinic will now use Viedoc in all its clinical studies. The unit accounts for about half of all clinical trials performed at the hospital. Currently, nearly 200 studies are ongoing. One goal of the partnership with Viedoc is that every patient will be able to volunteer for a research study, if they wish to do so.
“A structured, organized partnership means that we reduce our costs for clinical studies. At the same time, we can contribute to technology development for clinical studies in the cancer field, which benefits both our own research groups and many others," says Peter Asplund, Department Manager and Deputy Chief Executive Officer, in a press release.
In addition to contracting a new high-profile client and enabling research, the partnership will give Viedoc important feedback.
“Even though our system is built primarily for end users – the individual examiner or researcher – our dialogue is usually carried out exclusively with the client, which can be anything from pharmaceuticals to biotech companies and CRO’s. Now we will get more feedback straight from the end users”, says Henrik Blombergsson, and continues:
“Uppsala University Hospital is at the forefront of several research fields and Viedoc’s ambition is to lead the development of Electronic Data Capturing, so this is a fitting partnership. We’re looking forward to initiate the project.”

Viedoc PMS – new product!
The long-anticipated Post Marketing Surveillance (PMS) application, Viedoc PMS™, is finally here! Viedoc PMS was launched Dec 6th, primarily for our Japanese clients, as PMS-studies are conducted differently in Japan compared to the rest of the world. Viedoc PMS is built on the same, world-class platform as our standard Viedoc application, which has been proven by real-world use for the last 5 years in every study phase, therapeutic area, and study type. Viedoc PMS, however, comes with additional features specific to the Japanese PMS workflow, such as support for collecting data in booklets, allowing data to be collected during a specific time period rather than a specific visit date, and sending/receiving data back and forth between site and sponsor – known in Japan as the Kaifu function.
With the addition of Viedoc PMS to Viedoc’s product portfolio, we are now offering the most advanced EDC system in the Japanese market!
If you are interested in knowing more about this new product, contact us here.

Meet us at BIO-Europe 2017
Meet us in Berlin for BIO-Europe 2017. It is the largest life science partnering conference in the industry with world-class workshops, panels and thousands of pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings. This is the 23rd annual international conference strategically hosted in Berlin as it is one of the leading life sciences and healthcare industries centres in the world.
The partnering one platform is now open. Contact Mr. Sverre Bengtsson, Co-founder and Sr VP Strategic Relations to learn more about Viedoc, the world's most sophisticated EDC & ePRO platform. With an increase in sales with more than 100% over the last two years, Viedoc is currently making a major impact on CROs and biotech companies all around the globe.
Take this opportunity to meet Sverre and find out how Viedoc can help your organization manage your trials in a more efficient, cost-effective and compliant way.
BYOD, App, Web-based Application?
Things to consider when collecting data from patients using ePRO
Patient self-reported data is playing a key part in efficacy, quality of life assessment and safety data collection in clinical trials. Bring Your Own Device, aka BYOD, enables a patient to capture such data on a device the patient is already familiar with, e.g. a smartphone, tablet or computer.
ViedocMe, our web-based ePRO solution, is an integrated part of our EDC platform Viedoc and allows patients to report clinical trial information directly from their mobile devices into the eCRFs available in Viedoc. Thanks to the integration, deploying a study diary and/or questionnaire in ViedocMe is not only more cost-effective than traditional ePRO trials, but can also be done in much less time.
ViedocMe builds on our vision of the future for how to handle patient reported data. For more information and a comparison between different solutions, see our white paper “The Future of ePro Platforms”, written in 2015 and still accurate.
We will be at NLS Days Sept. 12-14th!
Sverre Bengtsson, one of our co-founders will be part of the Super Session 5 on Sept. 14, from 8.00 – 9.15 followed by a Q&A. Topic: Preclinical and Clinical Methodological Advancements –Plenary Room – Main Hall
Many of the service providers in life science R&D have their own research. They provide much more than just an extra pair of hands and they spend high amounts on in house development of their services. With this super session, we will highlight their efforts and importance for the life science ecosystem where many of the companies are small and source for the latest technologies for their research and development.
Contact us to meet up, we look forward to another great NLS Days!

Viedoc Release: Facilitating lab data entry and management
Version 4.36 out now!
The new Viedoc feature, reference data including the new data element range item, makes it easy to enter data shared by many subjects. By centrally managing the reference data for different data sources it is now possible to fill in the reference values once and these will be automatically populated to the subject forms. As lab data is linked to a data source it is also possible to assign the same data to multiple data sources, allowing the site to choose which reference data to be used for a specific subject visit
Why nominate for the Viedoc Most Valuable Professional Award?
The passion born from improving electronic data capture for clinical trials is still our greatest goal and this has made us a leading provider in the industry. This goal can only be accomplished by the communication and collaboration we have with our users. That is why we have now introduced the Viedoc Most Valuable Professional (Viedoc MVP) award. The Viedoc MVP is given for outstanding contributions within the Viedoc community and to acknowledge those who are willing to share their passion, technical expertise and real-world knowledge of Viedoc, electronic data capture or clinical trials. A Viedoc MVP is awarded for individual contributions and the nominees are selected exclusively by the PCG Solution’s management team based on a review of accomplishments and achievements.
This year, we have given our first Viedoc MVP award to Makoto Yokobori at the User Group Meeting held in Tokyo on 13 June. Mr Yokobori was the first user to get our back end set up training back in 2008. Since then, he has gained and shared in-depth knowledge from all aspects of conducting clinical trials using Viedoc. Mr Yokobori is a true ambassador for good clinical practice and includes this thinking in the study design and how systems can best be incorporated to support and raise the quality of the study. He is full of ideas and has a strong interest in improving and developing the industry, much like why Viedoc was born.
Our yearly Viedoc User Group Meeting (UGM) Japan took place earlier this week on June 13th. It was the 8th consecutive meeting and was held at the Tokyo International Forum. This year’s gathering was the biggest so far. These meetings have been an excellent opportunity to learn from our client’s experience with Viedoc. We hear what they like about it as well as what works and what doesn’t. The forum is a brilliant way get to know our clients. It is created to understand our customer needs better as well as to share information within the industry.
During the meeting, 3 of the largest CROs in Japan presented their proficiency with Viedoc. It was extremely gratifying to learn from their experience and it gave us incredible insight to keep improving our product even more and stay ahead as a world leading EDC provider.
The evening ended with a reception where we further enjoyed talking to our clients. We thank the participation of everyone that made this event a success, and we are already look forward to next year’s event.
Viedoc has the largest geographic reach in Japan. It has become essential to provide this positive platform and we plan to keep with the yearly tradition. While UGM started in Japan, we have had UGMs in other places. The next one will be in the Fall in Frankfurt Germany for our European customers. More information to come on that after the summer.

White Paper: Preparing for the EU GDPR in Clinical and Biomedical Research
On the 25th of May, 2018 the new European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect. Everyone who does business within the EU must follow this new regulation. PCG Solutions is a European company, and is subject to GDPR.
GDPR requires companies to have control of their information management and its governance. In the Clinical Research sector this has long been vital for the success of clinical drug development, so it is not a pivotal change to how companies work. Instead companies need to ensure that their internal policies are aligned with the regulations defined in GDPR.
This white paper explains what GDPR is, the responsibilities and obligations it entails and how it affects you in your dealing with the EU and with PCG Solutions. PCG Solutions customers cover the entire range of companies from those active in the EU with natural persons based in the EU in their studies, to the opposite extreme where the only contact with the EU is PCG Solutions itself. This white paper covers all scenarios so that no matter what your connection to the EU is you can easily see how you are affected.
The latest release of Viedoc, version 4.34, supports file upload, which enables sites to manage all kinds of files together with the eCRF data, i.e. photos, documents, PDFs, images etc. Through standard data checks there is also a possibility to control size, uniqueness, name etc of each file uploaded. Contact us today for more information on how to manage the files in your study.
We will be present at the CDISC Europe Interchange in London, April 24-28. Join the companies, organisations and institutions already using Viedoc and contact us to discuss how also you can get started using the world’s most sophisticated EDC system.
The implementation of the WHO Drug Dictionaries in Viedoc was on March 8 validated and certified by the Uppsala Monitoring Centre, the global leader in pharmacovigilance. This means that all Viedoc customers using WHO-DD enable their pharmacovigilance to work more efficient by utilizing the global de-facto standard for coding drug names.
Working for a better world
Safer use of modern and traditional medicines is an ambitious goal for all of us. It depends on patients and health professionals, health ministries, regulators, and manufacturers working actively together. The priority is to identify when patients suffer any kind of harm from their therapy and to reduce the risk of this happening in the future. Uppsala Monitoring Centre is a major part of this global effort.
Viedoc Release: VAS up!?
Version 4.33 out now!
The Viedoc 4.33 release adds support for a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) in ViedocMe, enabling subjects to use the VAS scale to indicate and submit the intensity of perceived pain or disease symptoms. ViedocMe supports a 10 cm VAS on iPad Mini version 2-4 devices, and logs the device used by the subject when answering.
Viedoc continues to deliver top quality EDC services, resulting in a jump in sales by 68 percent in 2016 compared to the previous year. The main reasons behind the increased sales are larger projects and more new clients. Japan continues to be the top market for a fifth consecutive year. Also, the new system features introduced during the year were well-received by the users.
2017 has started in a very positive way with a couple of larger projects signed already.
Enjoy your trial!
