More than 10 years ago, the digital revolution came to the clinical trials industry, ushering in a host of new technologies for sites worldwide. While a few technologies were lauded, many sites found themselves overwhelmed by the sheer number of new offerings and frustrated by the numerous solutions proposed by sponsors that ultimately made trials more difficult.
In the years since, the industry has responded to site concerns by updating older technologies to be more intuitive and introducing new tools designed with sites in mind. This has helped some sites become less wary of new technology. However, there’s still much work to be done. There are many steps that organizations can take to implement a site-first approach to ensure their tools aren’t missing the mark.
