Integrating the Clinical Enterprise with Innovative Cloud Technology

To manage a clinical trial typically involves numerous disparate best-of-breed applications, specifically selected to match a company’s unique business needs and that specialize in trial design, clinical site management, data capture, safety, laboratory management, and subject recruitment and tracking. There is now a drive in the drug/device development industry for better use of metrics from these sources to develop more efficient business processes to deliver better business insight. Thus, there is a strong incentive to maximize investments in knowledge and technology by integrating these diverse applications to improve clarity, consistency, quality and effectiveness and adds further weight to the argument that today, development companies and their research partners are more “data consumers” than has ever been the case before. Outsourcing and interoperability strategies have become the key focus.

At this webinar you will hear how OmniComm’s enterprise class cloud technology, when combined with an innovative electronic data capture application, can create the platform for an integrated and optimized clinical enterprise.
