Viedoc offers free licenses to support the global race for a COVID-19 vaccine
NEVER BEFORE HAS TIME BEEN MORE OF THE ESSENCE. We encourage every company in our field to join us in supporting the global research community in this effort. To do our part, Viedoc Technologies is offering free access to our software in all 2020 COVID-19 trials. Simply because it is the right thing to do.
Viedoc was created to help life science companies bring therapies to market faster by developing more efficient EDC technology. At no time has the impact of this mission been more evident than with the recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). Only recently it would have been unthinkable to produce a completely new vaccine within the time frames that are being suggested today.
The outbreak of this virus has been responsible for the deaths of thousands globally and infected many more in a short period of time. The World Health Organization recently declared this to be a pandemic, only the fifth outbreak of this magnitude in over 120 years. Many measures are being taken by governments around the world to slow the extent of this novel virus. These steps taken are essential in slowing the spread to give the global scientific community time to find a vaccine.
We at Viedoc Technologies understand the importance and urgency of this unprecedented situation. This is why we are offering Viedoc free of charge to any institution in the search for a Covid-19 vaccine for the remainder of 2020.
Responding to COVID-19 Viedoc continues fully operational
Viedoc has always been aware of how vital data safety, security, and access are to our customers. No matter the circumstances, we are committed to maintaining the high level of service expected of our clients.
Viedoc Technologies has been a stable provider of eClinical solutions for close to two decades now. We have always placed data integrity and security as our highest priority. The stability of our system has, in part, led to Viedoc's success and made us the dependable vendor we are today. Viedoc has always prioritized the security of data making us one of the most reliable players on the global market.
Just as important as the systems that run Viedoc are the people behind Viedoc. Our management team is continually monitoring the events surrounding the spread of the Covid-19 virus. The team's priorities are to ensure the safety of our staff and their families. And in doing so, assure the delivery of high-quality service to all our clients.
Is Viedoc prepared?
Yes. We have implemented our long-established business continuity plan in case of an event of this magnitude to ensure safe and smooth operations moving forward, including that of our suppliers. With offices around the world, we have executed a work-from-home strategy to mitigate any possible infection of our team to keep them healthy and secure.
Have actions have been taken?
A risk management group has been formed to monitor the progress of the current crisis and some precautionary messures have been take to minimize risks. For example most of your empolyees are woking home based to ensure as few as possible get sick at the same time. We have also been in touch with all of our suppliers to ensure continued service.
Will access to my trial data be affected due to the outbreak?
No. We see no risk for service interuptions at this time. Viedoc is hosted in Microsoft Azure data centers in several locations around the world with robust redundancies and frequent backups allowing us to stand by our Service Level Agreements.
Is my data safe?
Absolutely. Our technicians monitor the well-being of the system every minute of every day, year-round. With data centers spread over the world, our shared resources give our platform robust endurance being able to share resources to even any load.
Will everyone in my study continue to have access?
Yes. Being a web-based solution gives all users the flexibility of working from wherever there is internet access. Remote monitoring during the Corona outbreak has become necessary for many, which is done simply and efficiently with Viedoc.
How stable is Viedoc Technologies, the company behind Viedoc?
Viedoc Technologies is a new name for many. However, we have been in this industry for nearly two decades. We have a broad and fantastic clientele spread over the globe. Our global presence is a strength allowing us to share duties and lighten the load whenever and wherever needed. All of this enables us to uphold a sound, safe, and robust system to the tens of thousands who use Viedoc every day.

Straub Medical selects Viedoc
PRESS RELEASE / 2019-12-04
Straub Medical has signed a master service agreement with PCG Solutions and has recently launched their first study powered by Viedoc.
After previously working with other eClinical systems, Straub Medical recently chose to add Viedoc to their portfolio.
“Viedoc has an intuitive interface for users working at the clinical study site as well as for data monitors and data managers,” says Dr. Torsten Böhler, Head of Clinical Affairs at Straub Medical.
“We’re happy to work with the Straub Medical team and to have launched their first study on time and within budget. Our aim has always been to develop a system intuitive enough to be easily adapted and used by all roles within any trial. It is gratifying to work with companies that share our values of high quality and reliability" says Henrik Blombergsson, C.O.O. and co-founder of Viedoc.

Growth partner joins PCG to continue the expansion of Viedoc
Stockholm-based investment firm Monterro joins PCG to continue the expansion of Viedoc by further developing the product, strengthening the organization, and accelerating its international expansion.
“PCG has been identified as one of the most promising growth companies in the market with a highly competitive and scalable multi-tenant SaaS platform based on 20 years of industry experience. PCG has strong business momentum and has successfully established a global presence, with large customer bases in Sweden, China, Japan and elsewhere. We´re excited to work together with PCG to further accelerate the growth and continue to develop the product”, says Peter Larsson, Managing Partner at Monterro.
After months of preparations and several weekends of work from our IT-team, we are happy to announce that Viedoc now operates in the Microsoft Azure platform. This means that all our clients outside of the Asian market continue to have their data located within the EU, but now in France as opposed to Sweden.
The move to Azure took place in several steps throughout 2019. This included administration, analysis, validations and more. The final stage of the migration was executed in September, working into the early hours of Sunday 29th. Our Product Operations Manager was one of the lucky ones performing the move:
“We had to extend our service window between 02:00 and 07:00 UTC to be able to make the final step – moving the database. Everything went smoothly but we finished one hour past planned end time, due to the amount of data.”
Viedoc is developed and operated using Microsoft frameworks and products. And Microsoft is in the forefront of cloud computing development and is certified in ISO/IEC 27001, 27017 (cloud) and 27018 (cloud privacy). Therefore, Azure was the natural choice.
What can our clients expect from now on, when Viedoc uses Azure as platform?
“There are no changes to the actual system that our users can see. But in general, we now have larger capability with access to more redundancy and more resources – leading to even better availability for our clients using Viedoc.”
Sounds great! What other benefits are there from this migration?
“Well, the migration to Azure goes hand in hand with our next goal, which is to become certified in ISO 27001. Since Azure is also certified, we all benefit from using a vendor that has a standardized and globally recognized security work.”
Thank you to the whole IT-team. Good job!

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!

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!
