LONDON, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mapi, the original developer of Linguistic Validation and most trusted provider of Clinical Outcome Assessments collaborates with YPrime, the leading eClinical technology provider, to streamline the deployment of validated Assessments migrated onto YPrime's eCOA platform.

Mapi Language services and YPrime are leveraging cloud level integrations between technology platforms to establish a seamless operational interface between Mapi's ISO 17100 certified process and YPrime's eCOA platform facilitating Linguistic Validations and direct screenshot reviews enabling faster turnaround time and higher quality assurance of migrated instruments.

The collaboration will also deliver integration for Mapi to directly develop and validate eCOAs on YPrime's platform eliminating the manual versioning and migrated questionnaire processes for new 'born on eCOA' questionnaires. The cloud facilitated integration process improves migration integrity of paper originated COAs. This expands Mapi's and YPrime's offering to support our mutual clients with simultaneous multi-lingual development of eCOAs directly on YPrime's platform.

"Working with MAPI is part of YPrime's strategy to simplify access, and expedite start-up timelines to eCOA implementation for research organizations across the industry," said Mark Maietta, Chief Commercial Officer of YPrime. "We are thrilled about the opportunity to align our advanced platform with the largest provider of Patient-Centered Outcome instruments in this initiative. With established benefits in user experience, data quality and regulatory acceptance of eCOA solutions, I am confident this alliance will accelerate the already-burgeoning eCOA market adoption."

The new process will reduce the Linguistic Validation cycle and accelerate deployment enabling quicker 'first patient in' timelines. Additionally, the alliance enables real time collaboration reducing review and correction cycles. The entire process tightly follows Mapi's ISO 17100 Certification and offers direct multi-language simultaneous development of validated eCOAs on YPrime's eCOA platform.

"This collaboration demonstrates Mapi's commitment to transparency, quality and diligence in supporting our clients and YPrime's innovation in developing industry integrated platforms breaking the collaborative service barrier across COA licensing, Language Services and eCOA platform providers." Commented Elan Josielewski, Mapi's VP of Corporate Strategy and Global Marketing.
