The Modis Solution: Custom application leads to quicker approvals, reduced labor costs In 2000, Modis provided SAS developers to assist in the development of the client’s Standard Clinical Reporting System. This system was designed to speed up the process of getting medicines approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Modis helped the client realize this initiative by defining and following standard procedures for report generation, facilitated by a study-specific report generation environment that promotes software standardization and re-use. Mainframe SAS/AF and SAS PC were utilized in this endeavor. Reusable SAS macros were developed which could be used across various projects, which would speed up the FDA submission process and simultaneously improve quality assurance. The client realized $2 million in savings as a result of this project. This includes the reduction in labor costs by compiling necessary data automatically and speeding up the process of getting a drug to market. Modis continues to enjoy a successful partnership with this client. Other assignments included: Providing on-call Oracle Database consultants to meet the client’s limited needs.
