  • Thursday, April 29, 2021

The clinical trial operating model is rapidly changing as the industry reimagines how trials are conducted. Sponsors, CROs, and sites are looking for simpler ways to share information and make it easier for patients to participate in new trials, from enrollment to treatment.

Organizations are adopting new virtual, remote, and digital ways of working to accelerate clinical research. Looking ahead, the modern trial of the future will reduce the patient burden, speed drug development, and improve how stakeholders work together during clinical trials.

Join Veeva and Celerion as they share their strategic vision to transform clinical operations by automating and streamlining the flow of information across all parties involved in a trial.

This webinar will also provide a first look at the findings from Veeva’s Annual CRO Report which examines the drivers, barriers, and benefits of a unified clinical operating model from a CRO perspective.
