New England IRB Announces the Launch of FastTrack™ Web Portal Maximizing Efficiencies in Clinical Trial Submission and Tracking

Maximizing Efficiencies in Clinical Trial Submission and Tracking

Newton, MA and New York, NY – February 7, 2011 – New England Institutional Review Board is pleased to announce the launch of a new web-based portal for IRB study management. FastTrack, powered by TransPerfect Trial Interactive, provides a secure platform for the submission, tracking and exchange of study-related documents between New England IRB and study project teams.

FastTrack is a comprehensive system that creates efficiencies in the IRB submission and review process. It allows sponsors and CROs to submit IRB documents online, create protocol and site review status reports, access IRB documentation, and manage study access by individual document.

FastTrack is fully configurable for communication workflow among sponsors, CROs, investigative sites and New England IRB.

According to James Saunders, New England IRB Vice President, “We evaluated several online web portal solutions before we finally settled on Trial Interactive from TransPerfect. The Trial Interactive client services team is very responsive with any support issues on a 24/7 basis. We’re also finding that sponsors and CROs who use TransPerfect’s platform for their electronic Trial Master Files (eTMFs) or translations can jump right into using FastTrack with virtually no training. It’s a win–win solution for all.” 

Michael Smyth, General Manager of TransPerfect’s Life Sciences Solutions division commented, “NEIRB is a forward-thinking organization focused on creating efficiencies for their clients, including cost savings and faster review timelines. The use of Trial Interactive allows companies like NEIRB to move further toward a paperless clinical trial solution.”
