Are Safety Signals Overlooked In Clinical Trials?

Medical Monitors encounter a variety of challenges in their roles, and they do whatever it takes to detect and report safety signals. With the increasing scale of study data and a growing number of clinical trial databases, medical monitors face additional pressures crunching large data sets to detect and report safety signals, which is resource exhaustive for biopharmaceutical enterprises and CROs. Nonetheless, with the advent of new data visualization and workflow technologies, medical monitors can focus on patient safety and signals detection without having to learn new data wrangling skills. In this interview, Jennifer Prichard, MD, Medical Monitor at Atlantic Research Group, and Hunter Walker, CTO at Atlantic Research Group (a CRO) will discuss challenges with existing medical monitoring processes, and how new technologies can help improve efficiency.
