Case Study – Oncotherapeutics



Oncotherapeutics is a full service contract research organization (CRO) with a unique focus in oncology, offering a comprehensive service portfolio that supports preclinical studies and clinical trials from I to IV. Providing high quality deliverables to clients from small start-up biotech (16-50 employees), to large biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies (10k+ employees). Their full suite of services includes expert dedicated project teams, medical writing, data management, regulatory submissions, analysis and reporting.


As a provider of contract research services for various sized organizations with numerous sites, Oncotherapeutics found the labor intensive process and extensive timeline to create complex oncology studies, as well as the cost associated with each study, was taxing on both their administrative and economic resources. In addition, the training, support and oversight/monitoring required for each site was extensive.


Working in partnership with Clinical Studio’s Product Managers, Engineers and Support & Training Teams, Oncotherapeutics was able to migrate an entire study from their prior EDC provider to Clinical Studio in a few short days and went on to create two new studies in a fraction of the time it had taken previously (3 days vs. 1 month).

The “plug-and-play” implementation of Clinical Studio, along with the unique ability to edit a live study, create and reuse templates, integrate conditional actions for more effective remote site monitoring, as well as query management, reporting, CRF submission and deviation from protocol alerts made for a seamless deployment and positive transition. Aside from the usability and proprietary features of Clinical Studio, the cost to engage, create and run studies is substantially less than the incumbent EDC.

“We migrated an entire, complex oncology study from our previous EDC provider to Clinical Studio within a few days. The support team responded promptly to phone calls and emails and their development team regularly added features based on our specific needs and suggestions… The responsiveness of the Clinical Studio team creates a collaborative and personalized experience. Easy, self-directed training tutorials allowed our clinical trial investigators and their research coordinators to immediately capture data and alleviate the time spent handling support issues. We love the flexibility to modify live studies, reuse CRF’s (which hastens development time for each successive study) and create stacked edit checks and conditional actions. The transparent pricing structure removes the high costs associated with launching and running studies. Thank you Clinical Studio!” – John Haigh, Clinical Data Manager, Oncotherapeutics
