With larger, longer, and more complex clinical trials, along with more stringent regulatory requirements and oversight, integrating and managing the vast amounts of data arriving at a central integration point from many different

The good news is that innovations in clinical trial technology are underway, promising to improve trial efficiency, accuracy, and the bottom line. Sponsors and contract research organizations (CRO) are seeking a more effective, comprehensive solution through a more-effective electronic data management strategy that includes an aggregated data repository solution with analytics and realtime access to the fully integrated data.
