Cancer Research UK chooses Ideagen

Nottinghamshire software firm Ideagen has secured a new project with a cancer charity which will see the company supply it with two of its software applications.

Cancer Research UK, the cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research, will implement Ideagen’s Q-Pulse and PleaseReview products.

The project will see the charity adopt Ideagen’s software for general quality and compliance management tasks as well as for use during complex document review and collaboration projects.

PleaseReview will initially be used by Cancer Research UK’s medical writing and technology teams during comprehensive collaboration and reviews of technical documentation.

Q-Pulse will be adopted by the organisation’s clinical trial and drug production teams, again replacing a manual process for simpler compliance with regulatory bodies such as MHRA.

Sue Waller, Head of Quality, Regulatory and Pharmacovigilance at Cancer Research UK, said: “Our ambition is to accelerate progress so that by 2034, three in four people will survive their cancer for at least ten years. To do this, we need to work efficiently and collaboratively and Ideagen’s software will help us do this.

“Using PleaseReview, we will reduce review times across important documentation such as technical processes, drug development documentation or reports.

“Q-Pulse will become our central electronic quality management system, reducing efforts in managing our QMS while improving regulatory compliance and reducing the risk of inspection findings.

“Both software applications will help us continue our pioneering work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.”
