First-of-its-kind secure investigator platform provides clinical investigators with one trusted digital identity for all partners.

The pharmaceutical industry is facing a challenging economic landscape that compels companies to reinvent traditional operating models. Gone are the days when a single firm can operate vertically, owning all the assets required for the arduous journey to develop new drugs and medical devices.

Instead, companies are maneuvering to reinvent themselves to develop new therapies virtually. In an industry rife with expiring patents, increasing regulatory pressures and dwindling study populations in domestic markets, pharmaceutical and life sciences firms have adopted more agile methods for clinical trials that bring with them new challenges for secure data communication.

The common denominator in this evolution is collaboration with companies co-developing drugs with clinical resource organizations at an ever-increasing clip and partnering with other companies in the value chain to glean new insights and ideas.

In the "virtual clinical trial," the traditional paper-based process—that makes up approximately 40 percent of annual R&D costs—is replaced with digital communications to lower costs and speed the delivery of approved drugs to consumers. Cognizant provides a wide range of enterprise risk and security services, including a first-of-its-kind secure investigator platform that allows clinical investigators to have one trusted digital identity to use with all partners.

OFFERINGS

Secure and Trusted Identities

Our Shared Investigator Platform is the first-of-its-kind, "industry utility" that helps the pharmaceutical industry standardize clinical trial processes and replace the multiplicity of investigator platforms currently utilized by individual companies.      

The platform is based on the SAFE-BioPharma standard, which allows clinical investigators to have one trusted digital identity to use with all partners. It provides the highest levels of trust in the identities of those accessing Cognizant’s platform and the applications behind the platform. It also allows application providers a security standard to configure products and applications.     

The platform is based on a standardized approach all participating companies can use to manage the interface with site investigators, thus creating a high level of trust in investigators’ identities.       

In addition, all of our identity and access solutions, including lifecycle management of identities, access governance, federation and single sign-on software, help simplify user roles and manage periodic certifications.
