Let’s talk about the future of clinical trials. There’s no crystal ball, but we have plenty of data — and it shows the growing need for risk-based quality management (RBQM) in clinical research. In this blog we discuss the current clinical trials landscape, the factors driving change, and why the industry is embracing the RBQM model.
Three current factors driving up average the average clinical trial study duration are executional complexity, hyper-customization, and operating fragmentation. It’s nearly impossible to reduce any of these factors. Complexity isn’t going anywhere, data sources are only increasing, and as research expands, so does the number of organizations that support it, which too easily leads to fragmentation. Instead of reducing factors, let’s make better ways to manage them.
