Full Story:

At MOMENTUM, EMC World 2013, EMC (NYSE:EMC) today announced new solutions and enhancements across the growing EMC® Documentum® solution portfolio for the Energy, Life Sciences and Healthcare industries. The solutions are specifically designed to help customers address mission-critical information management challenges, while quickly capturing measurable value in efficiency, improved productivity and reliable compliance. Latest innovations include general availability of EMC® Documentum® Asset Operations, EMC® Documentum® Electronic Trial Master File, EMC® Documentum® Quality and Manufacturing, and EMC® Healthcare Integration Portfolio

The solutions combine the performance and scalability of the long-trusted Documentum Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform, and the latest release of Documentum® D2 for configuration and intuitive user interfaces, as well as implementation and migration services. The latest additions to the Documentum solution portfolio help organizations transform their businesses with high-value solutions and services that connect information to work.

New Additions to the Documentum Solution Portfolio:

EMC® Documentum® Asset Operations  

Large-scale operating assets for Energy companies must run efficiently and without interruption, while meeting strict health, safety, and environmental regulations. The new Documentum Asset Operations solution, part of the EMC® Documentum® Engineering, Plant, and Facilities Management (EPFM) solution suite, enables organizations to control asset-related documentation, automate workflows critical to plant operations and maintenance activities, and ensure efficiency and compliance with health, safety, environment and other regulatory standards. The new solution offers: 

  • Increased flexibility and scalability: The underlying Documentum ECM platform provides robust information management capabilities with pre-built templates and workflows to streamline operational processes. Its open architecture facilitates seamless integration with critical business systems.
  • Increased productivity and compliance: Open architecture integrates with key engineering, project and maintenance systems for fast and secure access to the most accurate up-to-date asset information, including standard operating procedures (SOP), technical documents, and as-built specifications, while increasing regulatory responsiveness.
  • Lower TCO and accelerate project initiation: Customers can take advantage of flexible deployment options via EMC® OnDemand. 

The Documentum Asset Operations solution complements the overall EPFM solution suite which includes EMC® Documentum® Capital Projects, enabling managers of complex design and construction projects effectively create, share, maintain and secure the large volumes of engineering-related content across globally distributed network of vendors and contractors.

EMC® Documentum® Electronic Trial Master File

The ability to effectively plan, collect and maintain essential clinical trial documentation is challenging and at times, risky especially as life sciences companies continue to offset costs by relying on CROs for the majority of clinical trials. The EMC Documentum Electronic Trial Master File (eTMF) solution, part of the EMC Documentum for Life Sciences solution suite, enables life sciences organizations to easily and effectively control and synchronize study artifacts, track progress in clinical trial documentation, and ensure fast, secure access to documentation both during and after the trial. The latest version includes enhanced usability such as automatic synchronization of document changes, advanced search and improved virtual document editing of large, complex deliverables. It provides advanced capabilities to simplify and accelerate complex clinical trial file planning, such as easily defining and maintaining trial plans using Microsoft Excel and managing files hierarchically by product, trial, country and site level, to ensure consistency across trials.  

EMC® Documentum® Quality & Manufacturing  

Life sciences organizations face more pressure than ever to run efficient, uninterrupted manufacturing production at the lowest possible cost, while meeting stringent safety, quality and regulatory standards to ensure patient safety.  Production delays can cost millions of dollars per day while consent decree fines for GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes) standards violations can be exorbitant. As part of the EMC Documentum for Life Sciences solution suite, the EMC Documentum Quality & Manufacturing solution enables life sciences organizations to control quality and manufacturing documents, automate workflows across the extended enterprise, and ensure compliance with GMP standards. The new version provides advanced search capabilities and faceted navigation to help users quickly find specific documents based on industry-standard metadata. In addition, it features enhanced "to be read" functionality to ensure compliance and inspection-readiness, while providing greater visibility into tracking of pending and completed tasks.

The EMC Documentum for Life Sciences solution suite helps organizations more efficiently and completely meet compliance requirements, increase productivity, and securely collaborate across the extended enterprise. The solution suite harnesses an information architecture based on the Drug Information Association (DIA) Electronic Document Management (EDM) and Trial Master File (TMF) Reference Models. The fully integrated suite not only simplifies submissions and other critical business processes, but also utilizes easily configurable, intuitive, and personalized interfaces to maximize productivity and ensure easy access to information.

EMC® Healthcare Integration Portfolio

Healthcare organizations worldwide are faced with the challenge of improving outcomes and managing costs while having to grapple with the vast amount of patient-related information produced in clinical and operational processes. This also adds to the growing pressures of information sharing for the delivery of patient care coordination and customer administration services linking with the Electronic Medical Record (EMR).

The EMC Healthcare Integration Portfolio (HIP) is a suite of products that simplifies the management and sharing of all forms of patient-related content, enabling more timely, efficient, and effective, patient care. By providing support for healthcare IT standards such as XDS, HL7 and DICOM, HIP enhances the value of an EMR, enabling the rich content management services of Documentum to be applied seamlessly to the management of patient-related content throughout its lifecycle, from capture to disposition or retention. The new solution offers:

  • Rapid access to patient health data at the point of care and cross-community based activities on the IHE's Cross-Community-Access (XCA) specification standard
  • Vendor neutral repository for storing structured and unstructured healthcare information including images, media and other patient-centric documents, available via XDS-specification
  • Scalable software architecture based on open standards enables interoperability between any healthcare information application or system, such as EPIC EMR and other EMRs, for secure sharing and exchange of information
  • Identity mapping capabilities to automatically reconcile patient identity including name changes, corrections or multiple record numbers using HL7 ADT messages
