The Importance Of Open Collaboration And Interoperability In Clinical Research Operations

By Andres Garcia, Chief Technology Officer at Florence Healthcare


In my earlier article, I underscored the significance of technology vendors fostering collaboration with various stakeholders in clinical research, emphasizing the need to "play well in the sandbox" for the benefit of patients awaiting innovative treatments. We are now at a pivotal juncture where open collaboration stands as a crucial pathway to address the escalating challenges in clinical research operations.

While scientific advancements progress rapidly, the operational facets of clinical research are experiencing a notable lag. Sponsors, CROs, and Technology vendors must navigate this landscape by facilitating effective communication between their systems. It is imperative to strike a balance—allowing interoperability while preserving independence and the capacity to innovate at diverse speeds. This approach becomes increasingly essential for the industry to surmount obstacles, harmonize efforts, and usher in a new era of collaborative innovation in clinical research.
