How Can BPM Be Used To Manage A Clinical Study?

BPM Use Cases

A BPM allows you to model and automate the various business processes of a company. To illustrate the different possibilities provided by a workflow management solution in terms of process modeling and automation, this use case presents how a low-code BPM will allow the creation and management of a clinical study process for a cosmetics company.

The Context

Implementing a BPM is an essential asset for a growing company. Let’s continue with the example of a growing cosmetics company, thanks to its constant innovation in its facial creams. This is an extremely competitive sector where maintaining growth requires constant innovation, with extremely precise regulations.

Its R&D team is constantly conducting clinical tests to test new formulas and new active agents, with the challenge of constantly adapting its long and complex research processes.

No solution exists on the market to modify the protocol on the fly, while ensuring the scientific nature necessary for this type of testing.

The Low-code BPM Revolution

This case study demonstrates the ability of a low-code BPM to model and deploy a new business process very quickly. The solution brings ease, flexibility, and is easy to learn.

The Low-code BPM brings a very high reactivity by avoiding the classical tunnel effects of specific developments which are the long implementation times and the high costs.

The other considerable advantage is the ability of a BPM to allow constant evolution of business processes according to new constraints or continuous improvement. In the context of a clinical study, this can be new regulations that require, for example, the addition of control steps, but also empirical feedback from the field teams to optimize the existing process.

This use case illustrates the implementation of a clinical study, but the application cases of BPM are almost infinite, whether it is a recruitment process, a maintenance management, or a purchasing process.
