Alliance Foundation Trials Implements Wingspan Life Science Solutions for eTMF and Site Collaboration

BLUE BELL, PA —Wingspan Technology today announced Alliance Foundations Trials, LLC (AFT) selected Wingspan eTMF and SiteZone to create, collect, modify, and manage its clinical trial content. AFT, based in  Boston and Chicago, is an academic research organization  that develops and conducts cancer clinical trials, working closely with pharmaceutical partners, research collaborators and the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology scientific investigators and institutional member network.

AFT selected Wingspan eTMF for its easier-to-use, more transparent and more cost-effecive solutions. AFT also implemented SiteZone, Wingspan’s tool for site collaboration, to create more efficient workflows and eliminate the transfer of paper documents between clinical trial sites, CRAs, and the eTMF.

“AFT utilizes the Alliance network of sites for all AFT trials. We wanted a system that is easy to use for both our study teams and sites. We found that in Wingspan and Sitezone,” said Monica M. Bertagnolli, MD, President of Alliance Foundation Trials and Group Chair of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology. “Our goal is to have a single eTMF across our broad portfolio that will support both large and small studies. We believe Wingspan will deliver what we need. “

In order to facilitate a smooth and timely transition, AFT used a four-phase implementation approach. They first implemented Wingspan eTMF, then SiteZone, followed by CTMS integration, and finally migrated all content from their previous system. AFT used a risk-based approach to user acceptance testing, leveraging Wingspan’s UAT accelerator materials. This allowed additional time for user training prior to the official go-live date.
