There is a plethora of data points needed to run a successful trial through to approval. Departments (drug supply, clinical, finance) may have different uses for the same data, and therefore the way they track and communicate the data varies. Externally, your vendors and CROs collect, store and analyze data. Your end-users at clinical sites enter data that are fed back through the workflow. With so many systems and so many users, system integrations are critical to avoid redundant data entry, discrepancies and gaps in data.
