Purpose-built SSU solutions track clinical trial operations using much needed standardized performance metrics

Data, data everywhere, and not a byte to help us think is a playful yet truthful adaptation of a line from Samuel Coleridge’s famous poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.1 It reflects the current state of metrics, whereby massive volumes of data are generated during clinical trials, but they are woefully inadequate at helping stakeholders spot risk factors and bottlenecks that can disrupt cycle times and budgets. This is due to the inefficient ways in which operational data are captured and analyzed, often relying on outdated methods such as paper, shared file drives, and Excel, which lack much needed project- and risk management functionality.
