In December 2021, 97 sites, sponsors, and CROs completed our State of Clinical Trial Operations survey, providing more than five dozen data points each. We analyzed the data to create our complimentary report with almost 40 pages of insights into clinical trial technology.
But if you want to start your 2022 planning before diving into the full report, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading to discover 7 key trends in clinical operations technology that your clinical trial team needs to know about.
