What You Need to Know About Validation in Clinical Data Management

In our most recent blog post, we tackled the topic of building a study and discussed why it’s important to make the process as quick and cost-effective as possible. With the right electronic data capture (EDC) platform, designing case report forms (CRFs) and configuring study settings should be easy. Plus, it shouldn’t break the bank. […]

How to Shorten the Duration of a Clinical Study Build

It’s no secret that the research and development of medical treatments is both costly and cumbersome. The price tag to get a treatment to market is estimated at $2.7 billion; not to mention, the time it takes for a drug to go from a mere concept to being approved and marketable is a lengthy 12 years. […]

Implementing Risk-Based Monitoring in Your Clinical Trial Processes

Over the past few years, we’ve begun to see a shift away from traditional site monitoring and more movement toward risk-based monitoring (RBM) programs. Instead of following a traditional monitoring plan in which a clinical research associate (CRA) routinely visits a site – approximately every six weeks – to complete source data verification (SDV) each […]

Open APIs and Webhooks: The Key to Interoperability in Clinical Research Technology

The interoperability of technology platforms is an often-discussed but dodgy concept in the clinical research industry. While it is widely agreed upon that flexible software systems offer much more value than rigid systems, very few flexible technology tools for clinical research exist. In fact, there are a couple popular eClinical systems on the market that tout […]

5 Ways to Make Clinical Trial Recruitment More Patient-Centric

By: Nancy Ryerson There’s a common conception in the pharmaceutical industry that patients aren’t interested in participating in clinical research. But surveys find that up to 71% of patients are very or somewhat interested in taking part in one. So why is patient recruitment so challenging, not to mention expensive? One issue keeping patients from […]

The Value of Data Collected Using eCOA and ePRO in Clinical Research

Surrounding the industry shift to make clinical trials more patient-centric, there has been a drastic increase in the adoption of eCOA and ePRO technology solutions. According to a recent research report conducted on the electronic clinical outcome assessments (eCOA) and electronic patient reported outcomes (ePRO) market, this segment of the clinical research industry – and […]
