Collaboration Features in CAPTIS™

CAPTIS™ offers medical writing teams a solution to improve their collaborative efforts needed for compliance. A sleek interface and time-saving workflows with literature database integrations such as PubMed and Google Scholar are not the only objectives of the platform: we also prioritized improved compliance and reproducibility of data. Notified Bodies expect that the data reflected in CEPs and CERs is both traceable and reproducible, and this is not always the case if a manual process is utilized to screen literature data. When Notified Body reviewers see that a solution like CAPTIS™ has been used to screen literature, their confidence in the data increases significantly and they are able to approve documents more quickly. Of course having uniform processes across various medical writers is critical in ensuring accuracy.

Collaboration features in CAPTIS™ allow writers and reviewers to directly tag team members and highlight and tag relevant portions. Cross-functional teams can work simultaneously on the same report to make sure it is reviewed by the right stakeholders and completed on time.

CAPTIS™ vs Other Solutions

Performing systematic literature reviews (SLR) is an arduous and time-consuming process that involves not only comprehensive literature searching but also record de-duplication, title/abstract and full-text screening, data extraction, quality assessment, statistical analysis, data visualization, report writing, and the creation of a bibliography. Here, we compile a comprehensive list of features of CAPTIS™ in comparison to other solutions in the market.
