In November 2021, Florence hosted over 200 clinical research professionals at our first-ever Innovation Summit. This event was sponsored by our Digital Research Community, an organization we talked about here.
Going paperless was the most popular topic at the Innovation Summit, with dozens of clinical research experts sharing how they use technology to run their trials.
From these discussions, we picked up on three common concerns about going paperless:
- The impact on operations: Does going paperless actually increase efficiency?
- The ROI: Is going paperless worth the cost? If yes, how do you show the benefits to sponsors and CROs?
- The effect on staff: How do clinical research teams make technology work for them instead of against them?
Going paperless can help clinical research sites become more efficient, save time and money, and stay compliant. But in order to see these benefits, clinical research professionals have to get ready for a digital research transformation.
