Webinar: Is Automation of Clinical Trials the Panacea the Industry so Desperately Needs?

Title: Is Automation of Clinical Trials the Panacea the Industry so Desperately Needs?


More data are being generated, collected, monitored, managed and stored. Sponsors and contract research organizations (CRO) must continuously fight an uphill battle to reduce complexity, streamline business processes and workflows, ensure compliance, and increase efficiencies at all scales.

Queue the automation of clinical trials and with it much hype and potential. But is the availability of more advanced, integrated cloud-based platforms the panacea the industry so desperately needs to tackle the stagnation of clinical trial performance? Or is automation the precursive step towards more significant improvements in study execution?

In this webinar, we will explore:

  • How performance metrics gleaned from automation of workflows empowers business intelligence - a movement along the continuum from descriptive, diagnostic, predictive to perspective - allowing process optimization and efficient resource allocation
  • How automation improves proactive planning and breaks down organizational siloes
  • How collaboration is a key component to modernizing clinical trials, streamlining communications and enabling real-time decision making by stakeholders

This webinar is applicable to:

  • Sponsor and CRO roles responsible for site identification, feasibility assessment, selection and activation
  • Sponsor and CRO roles responsible for collecting and evaluating trial metrics
